Do you have what it takes to make a difference?

ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic and vibrant organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people with learning disabilities and we are looking for a motivated and driven individual to join us in striving to ensure they have the same opportunities as everyone else.

Your role as an ENABLE Works Employment Coordinator, within our Fair Start Scotland in North Lanarkshire, will support people who have learning disabilities to make progress towards and achieve employment.

You will work closely with a group of people who have learning disabilities each year, profiling their skills and jointly planning activity that will enable them to achieve their work goals and become independent, active members of their community.

You will be responsible for developing positive relationships with the programme participants, their circles of support and professional support services.

You will work closely with local partners, including employers, funders and other stakeholders, developing professional relationships that will offer a diverse range of experiences and opportunities.

You will be given a work plan to achieve in order that programme participants are receiving a quality service and we are achieving the expectations of funders and stakeholders, and you will be required to meet challenging but achievable programme KDIs.

You will be an important member of the wider ENABLE Works team, supporting departmental objectives through delivery of support but also through positive collaboration and innovation within your team to support our strategic, societal goals.

  • Recording and gathering project information in line with project timescales and work plan
  • Handling and storing project information in line with ENABLE Scotland's data protection policy
  • Reporting accurately on project activity when requested and in line with project timescales

Meeting performance expectations:

  • Active case management to ensure participants are achieving success
  • Meeting and exceeding individual project expectations
  • Innovating and collaborating across your team to support wider ENABLE Works performance

Contribution to strategy:

  • Sharing best practice and opportunities with ENABLE Works colleagues
  • Positive and flexible response to changes in work plans
  • Collaborative approach to team and departmental delivery
  • Managing your time/caseload efficiently in order to respond to additional duties as required
  • Supporting the training and marking of accredited staff training
