High Trees are recruiting a Trainee Employment Advisor who will receive full on the job training to allow them to give high quality, person-centred employment support to our beneficiaries. Our Employment Advisors work on a one-on-one basis to allow High Trees users to strengthen their skills, gain confidence and move into meaningful employment.
You will learn how to conduct in-depth and comprehensive Initial Assessments in order to produce SMART & tailored Action Plans, how to engage potential referral partners and conduct outreach to recruit participants. Also, how to engage with employers to create job opportunities for those engaged in our service.
