Activities officer: employability and crime prevention – closing date 30 December 2020

Get Berkshire Active works with organisations across Berkshire to increase participation in sport and physical activity. Our overriding aim is to use physical activity to contribute to social, economic, health and community agendas across Berkshire, through the personal development of individuals. We provide our partners with support to achieve these shared aims alongside the delivery of a number of projects to encourage people to be active.

We are seeking an individual with a passion for making a difference to coordinate and deliver our Employability and Crime Prevention programmes. There is a focus on young people but our programmes also support adults of all ages. The post holder will be required to organise, coordinate and (on some occasions) deliver appropriate interventions, in consultation with partners and participants.

We use activities and sport to help develop soft skills in those who are unemployed and self-control, empathy and positivity in those at risk of offending. The objective is to encourage participants to become confident and motivated to undertake further training, find work and therefore reduce their likelihood of becoming involved in crime.

The postholder will coordinate multiple delivery partners. Ideally candidates will have experience in a coaching, mentoring or employability training role.
