Youth Direction Careers continues to provide bespoke Guidance services to schools and colleges throughout the Tees Valley, Sunderland and in North Yorkshire. As part of our support to schools we wish to appoint a Work Placement Coordinator to improve the opportunities available to students in accessing individual work placements and work experience weeks.

This post is initially until the end of March 2021 and the intention is to make this role fully self-financing so that the contract extends well beyond that.

We are looking for someone who is well-organised, is proactive and who has excellent communication skills. An ability to engage both employers and educational establishments is essential, so previous experience of sales or marketing approaches would be an advantage.

We envisage the role starting with the development of a network of employers who want to offer work placements and/or work experience blocks; to then generate interest from schools, colleges and other organisations working with young people to use us as a central point to coordinate such experiences; and to conduct workplace checks and risk assessments where needed on behalf of schools and colleges. In return we offer very flexible working, a very positive working environment and team, and access to a broad and comprehensive CPD programme.

For detailed information on this role, please refer to the Job Description and Person Specification.

Please ensure you refer to the essential and desirable criteria detailed in the Person Specification when completing your application as they are used to select candidates for interview.

For a further informal discussion, please contact Ian Caley, Guidance & Participation Manager, on 07539 290199.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council ensures that all customers, both internal and external receive a consistently high quality level of service.
