Summary:

Sometimes people find themselves going through tough times. Maybe they’ve had a bereavement, or they’ve lost a job, or trauma from their past is making it hard to be who they want to be. Sometimes people need help to keep their housing, and circumstances are so overwhelming they feel they can’t do it alone.

Is this you?

As an Asset Coach you’ll be the person they can turn to for help and support to achieve their chosen goals.

About Us:

We work with people experiencing challenges with their mental health, and with communities who want to create a greater sense of wellbeing in the places that they live. Through our projects, we work with thousands of people each year.

We believe that long-lasting wellbeing comes about by understanding how lives can be shaped by traumatic experiences, identifying people’s strengths and focussing on healing. We know we can’t ‘fix’ people, but we can walk alongside people and help where we can on their journey.

We try hard to make Platfform a great place to work, we live our values and mission in everything that we do.

Job Role:

If you have the care and compassion for others and want to help someone else succeed and get back to everyday life, then we want to hear from you. Whatever your background, your experience, or your knowledge. We look for people who have the passion for change.

Our Values are at the heart of everything we do.

Will you?

  • Be caring and compassionate to everyone
  • Be a good listener.
  • Be connected to your community – know what resources are around, who can help, where clubs and events are happening.
  • Be proactive, innovative and positive.
  • Be confident to speak out and to champion what is right.
  • Be open to learning new skills and ideas.
  • Passionate about mental health, homelessness and poverty.
  • Be able to drive or willing to travel – this role is travel-heavy but in local areas, so the ability to drive will make it much easier for you.
  • Use your lived experience and experience of volunteering, caring, paid support or care, supporting friends.

Lots of people wait to be absolutely certain they can do a job. Some people struggle with confidence or worry if they can do something new. This is an exciting way of working which needs people who think differently, so if in doubt: apply.
