Education and travel provider Twin Group are recruiting multiple Employment Consultants to join their team on a short-term basis, to support the delivery of the Job Entry Targeted Support (JET) scheme.
The JET scheme is in place to assist jobseekers who have been directly affected by COVID-19, with referrals received from local jobcentres in West London, Kent, Essex and East Sussex. The aim of the scheme is to provide tailored training and support with CVs, interview techniques, structured job searches, sector-based work academies and one-to-one support to identify transferable skills the candidate has and ultimately assisting them in applying for live vacancies.
Twin Group are recruiting Employment Consultants who will receive referrals via a CRM system consisting of the candidate’s personal details and detailed action plan. The candidate will be booked onto relevant training courses delivered by the Employment Consultant, with a follow up one-to-one session to complete the upskilling exercise, at which point the candidate will be handed back to the referral provider.
With many people in the tourism and hospitality adversely affected by COVID-19, this is an ideal opportunity for those who have been made redundant to utilise their customer service skills to help others retrain and find employment, without making a permanent move away from the industry.
Twin Group will provide the necessary training for new Employment Consultants so candidates do not need to be from a recruitment background. The role is home based with occasional travel to sites once restrictions are lifted, and contracts will be for a three-to six-month period with the potential to extend based on referrals and quality of delivery.
