We are recruiting for a Personal Development Coach to cover the Mid Suffolk area

The Personal Development Service is a drop-in service for any young person (16 to 24 years) not engaged in education, employment or training (NEET). 

The service provides information, advice, signposting and practical support for any young person seeking information on employment, education and progression routes to help them into paid work, work placements, employment, voluntary work (as a stepping stone into work and a way to get ‘work ready’), education, apprenticeships and/or training.

This role is specifically aimed at working with young people who are the furthest away from the labour market and the hardest to reach. The individual who is successful will be working closely alongside families, support networks and other agencies to engage with these young people and get them on the road to being ‘work ready’.

Driver’s license and car is essential.
