Recovery Coach (Care Leavers Service)

1625 Independent People are a leading youth homelessness charity in the South West. We find secure homes, teach life-skills, offer advice, help access training and job opportunities.
Second Step is a leading mental health charity in the South West. We promote mental health and wellbeing by supporting people and communities to build brighter futures.
Working in partnership, together we are developing a new service for care leavers who are at risk of rough sleeping and who have complex needs, including mental health needs, drug and alcohol problems, and involvement in the criminal justice system, in Somerset.
This is an exciting opportunity to pilot a new approach to working with young people for whom existing pathways or provision are unsuitable.
There are 2 posts available, one employed by 1625ip and seconded to Second Step and a second post employed by Second Step. This will be a joint recruitment, so please apply through either organisation – you do not need to apply to both.

Contract details:
• Working hours: 22.5 hours per week (0.6 FTE) X 2
• Salary: £19,011 pro rata
• Contract: 12 months initially, with the possibility of extension, subject to funding. Flexible working available and secondment opportunity considered

• Location: Somerset
We work in a recovery focused, psychologically informed way (PIE) in all aspects of our work with young people. And we are offering you a personal development opportunity to engage with an innovative new Trauma-Recovery model in supporting the care leavers within the pilot service.
You will bring experience of supporting care leavers at risk of homelessness and strong engagement skills with the ability to build and sustain relationships with service users. You will have a commitment to promoting independence and supporting vulnerable young people in developing move on and recovery plans.
You will receive a full training and development programme, regular supervision, and be part of our reflective practice.

Covering Letter Guidance
Please note that the online application form cannot be saved until it is fully complete. We recommend that you prepare your Covering Letter before you start the online application.

Your Covering Letter will form the most important basis on which your skills, experience and personal attributes will be tested against the job criteria. Without it, your application cannot progress to the shortlisting stage.

You should refer to the Person Specification document within the Job Pack and cover only the elements that are tested at this stage of the recruitment process. Elements that only have the word ‘interview’ next to them will be tested at the next stage of the process and do not need to be covered in your letter.


Equal opportunities for everyone:
We safeguard and promote the safety and welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any job offer will depend on a satisfactory DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Barred List Disclosure Check.

We believe those with a criminal record should have an equal chance to become employees or volunteers. We also pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer for everyone regardless of age, disability, gender identity, race, religion and beliefs, sex and sexual orientation. We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black and Minority Ethnic groups as they are currently under-represented.

Please see our Policies section on the website, for further information. If you need an adjustment made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible.

This is not a Local Authority post and applicants will need to satisfy themselves with regard to condition of service.
