This is the most challenging and rewarding job you may ever apply for. The positive impact you can make on peoples’ lives will be down to the quality of support you provide as well as knowing your work will positively improve the lives’ of your customers and the wider community.

The role of the SAMH Senior Employment Advisor has its challenges and opportunities for you and the people you will support into employment. You are expected to deliver very high standards and performance targets in an environment where everyone wants the best for the customer.

Your attitude and personality matter as much as your skills and experiences. We are looking for initiative, creativity, energy and determination because, as an Employment Specialist, you’ll be supporting a diverse set of unemployed customers to find lasting jobs. They will each require different support so you’ll be doing a job that’s varied, challenging and genuinely rewarding.

Whatever your experience, we need people with an open-minded, determined attitude who can motivate and inspire both themselves and their customers to succeed. You will need to be comfortable working on your own initiative without the day to day presence of line management and one of your strengths will be building and maintaining positive relationships.

As this post will involve travel across various locations a full driving license and access to your own transport is essential.
