Jobs & Volunteering
The Aldingbourne Trust cares about its staff – we believe that to provide fantastic support to our clients, our employees need to be treated well.
WorkAid is a key project within the Aldingbourne Trust providing a range of opportunities to support people to progress towards paid employment. WorkAid also provides a range of related services, including signposting, support with job profiling, job searching, skills matching, interviewing skills, interview support, work tasters, work experience, job coaching and development of ‘soft’ skills. WorkAid may be working with individuals and groups, often as part of service level agreements that may involve several different funders and commissioners, each with specific eligibility criteria and requirements. Employment Consultants work to support independence and progression into employment, working closely with employers, other agencies and services such as Social Services, schools and colleges, day centres, Job Centre Plus, families etc. The service is predominantly based within West Sussex, but we do liaise with employers and organisations outside of the county.
The position is home-based but will involve county wide travel to offices, temporary bases, community venues and workplaces.
