YEI Employability Caseworker Job at Thirteen in Valley

Job Description

The person and the role

We require a Caseworker to join our employability team to support a caseload of Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) participants to help them build resilience, overcome barriers to economic inclusion and move towards sustainable employment and financial wellbeing. This is a full time, fixed term contract until July 2021.

The successful candidate will have experience of supporting young people into employment, education and training and have a proven track record of caseload management.

You will have excellent communication skills (written and verbal) with customers, colleagues and external stakeholders and an ability to identify opportunities, work in partnership and engage effectively to achieve positive outcomes. You must also have good relevant experience of engaging and delivering services to young people with a holistic approach.

At Thirteen we are about homes and so much more…

We are the largest housing association in the North East and amongst the 25 biggest nationally – but we are more than just a landlord. With 34,000 homes in an area spanning North Tyneside to York, with the majority of properties in the Tees Valley, we are about more than just somewhere to live.

Our experience extends to supporting vulnerable people with thoughtful and effective additional services and improving our homes and estates, as well as building new places for people to live.

Our purpose is to provide homes, support and opportunities to grow, and our skilled and engaged colleagues and committed board directors all work tirelessly and with a sense of pride to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude.

By doing this, we will make a major contribution to the regeneration of the Tees Valley to support the local economy.

Thirteen people are deeply passionate about what they do and why they do it. We seek to employ people who share our ambition to think and work differently. This means sourcing those passionate individuals who ensure every relationship matters, are reliable, passionate, and adaptable in their approach and can work progressively in a high performing, commercially minded environment.

Are you up for the challenge of bringing our vision to life?
