About the role
Skills and Employability Adviser (Year 14)
Full Time based in Hastings/Eastbourne (Flexible working options available)
Initially fixed term for one year
£22,000- £24,500 per annum
CXK is a leading charity that empowers young people and adults to build the skills and confidence they need to move into sustainable education, employment or training. Each year we make a difference to more than 70,000 people across the south-east by delivering various programmes including our Schools Careers Services and Youth Employability Services.
We are recruiting for a Skills and Employability Adviser with a specialism in supporting young people aged 18+ as they become ineligible for the core Youth Employability Service (YES) support in Year 14. The role sits within the Youth Employability Service which is commissioned by East Sussex County Council (ESCC).
Young people have been more adversely affected by COVID-19 than any other group, with 1 in 9 young people in East Sussex currently unemployed, at 10.9%, an increase of almost 140% on last year (based on most recent data in Dec 2020). We expect this number to be significantly higher and additional capacity is needed to support those who may have slipped through the net – in particular, those who for whatever reason are not in receipt of benefits from Job Centre Plus.
We have capacity for a full-time post however we would also welcome internal or external applicants for this role on a part time basis. This post has been funded for 1 year initially as a response to the increased demand on YES due to COVID-19.

Your starting salary will be pro rata if the above position is part-time or term-time only.
