Job Title: Work Placement Supporter 

Hourly Rate: £8.91 per hour +Statutory Holiday 

Location: Stamford

Start: ASAP 

 

QRS are currently recruiting on behalf of Stamford College for numerous candidates to support students with their work experience placements.  You will be expected to work 9:00am- 16:30pm. 

You would be enabling a student to progress or even start their all-important journey in the world of work. Employment of some kind is the only chance that many of these students have in order to progress in life and achieve their personal goals. With someone to support them, the student can be given a chance to show employers what they are capable of in the right environment and with the right people. 

 

There are a variety of placements, you could be stacking shelves in a shop, gardening or farming, cleaning Land Rovers and then going off-roading, volunteering in a charity shop, serving customers in a café or grooming horses in a stables – no two placements are the same! 

The difference that could be made to a student’s chances by having someone with them on their employment journey can be truly amazing! With most of our learners, the support could gradually be withdrawn, step by step, until the student was ready to continue independently. Then the support person would know that they had done something really life-changing for someone who needed it!

 

The work placements would be in the Stamford/Peterborough/Rutland area, and if the support could extend to helping students use public transport to and from their place of work, that would be another huge step on the road to employability. This isn’t true of all of our students, in which case the college would provide transport if the support could not use their own car. All additional travel expenses would be reimbursed by the college.

 

An amazing opportunity to get involved and support students, if this is of interest please email your cv to bbennett@qualityrs.co.uk
