Would you like to be part of a dynamic team delivering an important contract for Realise Futures and local communities?

Realise Futures will be delivering Multiply Suffolk in partnership with Suffolk County Council and MENTA. The ideal candidate for the Multiply Suffolk Coach role will be someone who is enthusiastic about supporting people to improve their functional numeracy. They will need a proven track record of building rapport with people from a variety of backgrounds and setting realistic and achievable goals so that the person they are supporting can take small steps to achieve and can see the progress they are making. The role holder will need to be able to support our participants who struggle with numeracy and have barriers to learning and achieving in employment due to learning difficulties, autism, mental health difficulties, criminal convictions, and other challenges.

Through the development of a trusted relationship with a participant caseload, the Multiply Suffolk Coach will conduct a holistic needs assessment and develop a mutually agreed plan to address individual needs and aspirations. The Multiply Suffolk Coach will deliver clear pathways for Multiply Suffolk participants with the opportunity to take steps towards breaking down barriers to work and health alongside being able to increase understanding and confidence in numeracy. They will forge strong links with the VCSE (Voluntary, Community, Social Enterprise) sector to offer a holistic approach which meets the needs of Suffolk’s most vulnerable people.

You will need to be an engaging, motivated, and innovative professional who will deliver a bespoke, holistic, and integrated coaching service for adults with disabilities and health conditions. Knowledge of and strong links within your local community is critical to the success of the delivery of this service. It is important that you have a good understanding of coaching and how to adapt theories and tools to meet the needs of participants alongside knowledge of local labour market trends to give appropriate information advice and guidance (IAG). Strong organisational skills and the ability to accurately record data are integral to the role.

The experience of our participants is integral to the success of our business and providing them with an excellent, person-centred, service is at the very core of the Coach role.

Realise Futures is proud to be a mindful employer that offers a range of employee benefits including flexible working arrangements (where business needs allow), 25 days annual leave (in addition to recognised bank holidays) and an occupational pension scheme.

Realise Futures is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable adults, young people and children, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We are an equal opportunities employer. This role is subject to a DBS check.
