Learning Disability Coach
Here at ongo, we believe everyone has the potential to be great. It’s what drives us to come to work and do our jobs every day.
Most people know us as a landlord providing homes to 10,000 people and their families. But homes aren’t our business, people are.
We now wish to appoint a Learning Disability Coach on a two year fixed term contract with a starting salary of £21,382 per annum rising to £24,170 after completion of a six month probationary period.
This is a new role within our Supported Housing Team. The successful person will work with our tenants who display a learning disability behaviour and live in our specifically built properties, to maintain their tenancy and live independently. You will be required to deliver a range of supportive interventions, based on individuals’ complex needs to help them to develop the necessary life skills and overcome the barriers that prevent progression towards learning and potential volunteering/employment.
In addition, you will also be required to work towards and exceed targets relating to the agreed number of life skills, work placements, training and employment outcomes for people displaying a learning disability behaviour who do not live in one of these properties. These clients may be living in an Ongo Homes general needs property, in the private sector, be a owner occupier or living with family/friends.
As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for the vacancy/ies.
Closing date for applications – 11th December 2019
