Outreach & Brokerage Adviser (Construction Careers) x 3

  • Employer Central London Forward
  • Location Central London
  • Salary £33,000 per annum inclusive of all allowances

Fixed term contract to 30th June 2020

Secondments will be considered. Politically restricted post.

 

Central London Forward (CLF) is expanding the team of Outreach & Brokerage Advisers that will deliver the Construction Careers Programme.

 

Construction Careers is an innovative high-profile pilot programme aiming to address some of the challenges faced by the construction sector in recruiting local residents into Central London’s construction sector employment opportunities. We are looking for candidates who are looking for an exciting new challenge to develop their career in employment support and construction specific job brokerage. The programme is being delivered by Central London Forward (CLF), a fast growing organisation that operates at a strategic level, promoting and making the case for central London by influencing policy, piloting new public policy solutions and providing advocacy on major issues affecting central London. CLF’s membership is comprised of the boroughs of Camden, City of London, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth and Westminster.

 

The three remaining Advisers will join a peripatetic team, working across eight Central London Boroughs. The successful candidates will be assigned to either the City of London, Islington Council or Lambeth Council where they will work with local employers (developers and contractors) and the existing infrastructure of outreach, IAG and job brokerage to support residents into the growing opportunities for a career in construction. As a member of an agile and adaptable team the Advisers work flexibly and be integrated into local Borough teams and structures. At the same time, the team of Advisers will work closing together, collaborating across boroughs to support client engagement and progression and very much working as a team to deliver support and interventions that support London residents into pathways to employer led training and job opportunities.

 

The programme will focus on opening up the apprenticeship and employment opportunities arising from the Section 106 planning obligations on major development sites which currently prioritise local residents over those living in neighbouring boroughs. Our ambition is to innovate and demonstrate the value of working as a sub-regional project to promote construction as an exciting career, whilst addressing the growing shortage of skilled labour in the construction industry. There will be a high-profile launch event for the programme where we will showcase what the programme can offer to the key stakeholders in the construction sector, including developers, contractors and training providers.

 

Your role will be to oversee and deliver the end-to-end customer journey from outreach and engagement through upskilling and pre-employment preparation to brokering into jobs and providing post-employment support (where this is the requirements of the local borough). In some boroughs you may deliver the whole end to end delivery and in others they may only deliver the specific elements required by the Borough. We are seeking to create a dynamic and highly motivated team with a complementary set of skills and experience.

 

You will ideally have experience/knowledge of the construction sector as well as experience in:

  1. a) Employer facing job brokerage, supporting job ready candidates into employment opportunities;

 

  1. b) Delivering innovative and measurable interventions to unemployed or disadvantaged customers which address economic inequality and enable social mobility;

 

  1. c) Establishing strong working relationships with a wide range of stakeholders, including employers, training providers and local services;

 

  1. d) Track record of successfully engaging with others across diverse communities, building positive and productive working relationships;

 

  1. e) Delivering successful outreach services to engage local residents onto programmes;

 

  1. f) Successful management of caseloads of people with widely differing needs, utilising case management and software systems to collate and manage data;
  2. g) Using relevant information to help customers to make informed decisions about career courses and identify the best way forward, making, managing and following up appropriate referrals to individual-support, skills and employment-preparation provision to upskill and progress individuals towards employment;

 

  1. h) Delivering against performance and quality objectives to deliver an excellent service.

 

Previous applicants need not apply.

Interviews expected to be in week commencing 23rd July 2018.
