VC Link + Supervisor
Are you passionate about working with men to see them overcome obstacles, challenges & life controlling issues so they regain hope and reach their full potential in life? Do you enjoy supporting people on a journey towards employment, taking a journey alongside them to build structure, learn skills, rebuild confidence?
As a volunteer, anti-poverty charity Vineyard Compassion are employing a new staff member to provide supervision within our Link + supported volunteering work programme, which includes the Link Logs social enterprise.
For full information about the role including essential and desirable criteria, please download the job description and applicant information below.
More Info on the Project: Link + offers a variety of work placements designed to increase clients’ confidence, skills, social networks and ultimately employability. Many clients within The Link are lacking in confidence after a long period of unemployment, others have mental health issues or are striving to break patterns of negative behaviour, such as drug or alcohol misuse.
This project works actively towards giving clients purpose for their day, and improving their life choices and chances. On-going support is provided through a mentor, who may be a more experienced volunteer or a member of staff. This mentor supports clients by creating work opportunities that enhance self-esteem and self-confidence, provide structure and routine; encourage, motivate and set goals, and improve social and community involvement. Not only can clients benefit from the volunteering experience but they can also ‘give something back’ and be the ‘helper’ rather than simply the ‘helped’. Further one to one support is given through the Compassion Support team, and all clients are encouraged to attend the CAP Job Club to build capacity and increase employability.
