Fixed term for 3 years.

Part time positions available. 

We are looking to recruit Navigators (Employment and Skills) to support the Work Well Suffolk project, a 3 year initiative, part-funded by the European Social Fund.

You will be based in offices across the county to ensure we meet community demands. The main offices are Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds and Lowestoft.

You will:

  • ensure links are made across Suffolk with a key strategic priority to ensure there is no duplication of provision and double funding is avoided
  • work as a facilitator to support the generation of ideas and opportunities in local places, sharing this information with fellow colleagues in other localities in Suffolk
  • be a skilled negotiator with exceptional communication skills and a good understanding of the employment and skills landscape across Suffolk, working with participants that have complex barriers such as learning difficulties, Autism and mental health.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.

For an informal discussion only please contact Andy Mawby, Adult Learning Manager on 07704 017575 or email: andrew.mawby@suffolk.gov.uk

  • Ipswich
