You will establish and support meaningful and aspirational internships, working closely with individuals, providers and employers.
You will work with a group of individuals over the academic year, supporting them to achieve the best outcomes.

To succeed in this role, you will need…
- A working knowledge of the Supported Internship Programme
- Experience of working with young people with SEND
- A track record of strong partnership working
- Excellent communication skills, with the ability to present confidently and negotiate with and influence a range of people

- The ability to effectively use Microsoft Office programmes
- You’ll need to be mobile and able to work form various locations, and able to work occasional evenings and weekends dependent on young people / business needs.
If you’re looking for an opportunity that enables you to support vulnerable young people, where your skills and experience can make a significant difference, and where there really is a work life balance, then Rutland is the place to work.
There’s also the excellent local government pension scheme, a generous annual leave balance, learning and development opportunities, and supportive colleagues to name just a few!
