Temporary Job Coach
Rate of pay: £13.64 per hour
Are you passionate about supporting young Disabled people to become independent?
Disability Advice Service Lambeth (dasl) is Lambeth’s leading pan-impairment Disabled People’s Organisation. We provide a wide range of services to Disabled people in Lambeth, including advice, information, professional advocacy, Direct Payments support, social and sports activities and peer support services.
We are seeking to appoint two temporary Job Coaches to work on the ‘Supported Pathways into the Creative Industries’ project. This is a partnership with Inclusion London, Lewisham College and other arts and cultural partners in London. The project involves providing employability skills training and work placements to young Disabled people (18-24 years old), most of whom have learning difficulties, to learn marketable and transferable skills.
The Job Coaches will be based at host employer sites in Central London; either the BFI, Roundhouse or Shakespeare’s Globe and is an opportunity for you to develop your support skills working 1:1 with a young Disabled person in an arts-based environment, implementing agreed training plans and working with the employers to ensure they are confident in developing workplace skills.
The roles are for 25 hours a week (between 10.30am and 3.30pm). We initially are looking for someone who can work in term time between 14th October and 20th December, subject to agreed funding, but we may also require Job Coaches to work from January onwards, depending on the support needs of the young Disabled person you would be working with.
