We are looking to recruit Job Coaches to join us on a bank basis, working with our students on the Supported Internship programme as and when required.  This is a very successful programme at Plumpton College supporting young adults with learning difficulties and/or disabilities who are keen to start work and venture into employment. This role is based from Plumpton or Netherfield with travel to employer sites as appropriate.

You will need to demonstrate excellent communication skills in order to build effective relationships with young adults, employers and families. You must have experience of working with students with learning difficulties or disabilities. As this role requires travel a full driving licence and access to a vehicle is essential. Post-holders will need to be well organised, professional, computer literate, and possess a flexible approach to their work. 

As well as a competitive salary, you can also look forward to a great range of benefits including staff discounts and free on-site parking. Mileage will be reimbursed for mileage incurred over and above usual travel to Plumpton College sites.

With over 3,000 students, excellent resources and a drive for continuous improvement, Plumpton College is actively seeking staff who want to make a difference and be part of this exciting phase of our development. At Plumpton College we are Ambitious & Progressive, Enterprising, Professional, Supportive and Passionate about everything we do – if you share these values and would like to be part of our growing team then we’d like to hear from you.
