Employment Support Advisor: Older People

Full Time: 37.5 hours per week

Fixed Term: until 31st December 2021

Position based in Ashford, (with extensive travel across Kent and East Sussex)

Salary circa £23,000

SEK are proud to have been selected to deliver The National Lottery Community fund (TNLCF) and European Social Fund (ESF) funded project, “Lots More to Offer” as part of the Building Better Opportunities programme.  The ‘Lots More To Offer’ project has a specific focus on working with participants over the age of 45 who are furthest away from the labour market, including those who are economically inactive. The successful candidate will have experience of delivering client-facing services and of working with unemployed, disadvantaged community members, to help them move into employment, self-employment, training and education or even job search. You must be able to demonstrate an understanding of the issues faced by older workers when attempting to re-enter the labour market, and will be able to work with clients to overcome these barriers and move into a positive outcome.

We welcome applications from people of all ages and backgrounds, and those who have personal experience of some of the issues we are trying to address in Social Enterprise Kent would be especially welcome to apply.

Extensive travel will be required for this role, so the use of a car and a clean driving licence is essential.
