Have you ever thought about using your transferable skills to work in a different sector? As lockdown starts to ease across the country, opportunities are opening up for work coaches, advisers, wellbeing professionals and others who are essential for helping people find work.

If you have experience in hospitality, leisure, tourism, events planning and management or any other customer-facing role, this could be a great opportunity for you to use your skills in a new role.

Elizabeth Taylor, CEO Employment Related Services Association, said, “The employment sector offers fulfilling roles, professional career development and accreditations. All wrapped up in a buoyant, growing and innovative industry, working with like-minded people to help those that need it most.”

We are urgently seeking:

  • Frontline advisers
  • Work coaches
  • Youth workers
  • Wellbeing professionals
  • Admin staff
  • IT staff

These opportunities are part of the government’s Restart programme, which is providing £2.9 billion in funding to help those affected by the pandemic to find work.
