Area of opportunity: Consultation
Opportunity description:

We support disabled people’s employability. We would like some extra support with some of the tasks.

We are looking for someone who would be happy to do any of the following:

- offer cv writing and application tips (e.g. face to face group or 1:1 including proof read as required) and/or
- offer accessible mock interviews and feedback to clients (e.g. 1:1)
supported job search (off and online techniques)
- Attend courses meetings and events, introducing yourself to participants in group settings
- Provide a short presentation about Breakthrough UK’s services
- Answer questions about the service
- Support staff to identify suitable job and/or training opportunities for individual job seekers
- Use various (online and offline) job search methods including phone calls

We will make sure you have:

- Previous examples of cv/application/mock interview work with clients
- A DBS staff member and group of job seekers to work with and any information required (e.g. about aspirations)
- Support to arrange accessible mock interviews (e.g. space and time)
- Feedback on progress (case studies as appropriate)
- Workspace and resources required

You will have the chance to:

- Meet new people
- Share your skills
- Learn more about the work breakthrough does
- Work together with our friendly team
- Make a difference!

Difference this will make to the group:

Offering CV /application writing tips from an employer perspective will help bring the world of work to life for disabled people. Having an unfamiliar face to offer mock interviews in a supportive environment helps bridge the gap between imagining an interview scenario and equipping people for the reality of a formal assessment. It means our staff can focus on recruiting clients, monitoring and providing wrap-around 1:1 bespoke support before and after this… including doing necessary admin and organisational tasks! Helping a client find suitable opportunities will give them the best chance of finding appropriate work or training or volunteering.
