Adviza is a registered charity that inspires and supports young people and adults to progress in learning and work. Here in the not-for-profit sector we are all about the client – and the successful delivery of our services.

We are looking for applicants who have the passion and commitment to help young people. Are you flexible, adaptable to change and open to new and innovative ways of working?

Adviza is a large, vibrant and innovative charity working with young people and adults to help them make the best of their lives. Working for us will offer you an interesting and rewarding opportunity to help people challenge and overcome barriers, enabling them to reach their full potential. Providing them with access to information, support, advice, guidance you will be making a real difference to the lives of young people.

We have an exciting opportunity for a Careers Adviser to work in schools across the Berkshire area.

We are looking for applicants with 

  • Level 6 in Careers Information, Advice and Guidance (may consider Level 4 with a commitment to work towards Level 6).

The job description for the role can be found here.

What do we need from you?

  • You should have significant experience of working with young people in either a paid or voluntary capacity
  • An appreciation of the key issues which affect young people
  • A good awareness of local knowledge of educational and employment provision.

What’s in it for you?

Salary and pay progression: our salaries are competitive within our sector, and we have a pay progression scheme in development which puts your future pay increases in your hands.

Your personal development: From fully funded qualifications through to allocated work time for personal development for every employee – we have your development covered.

Pensions: we go above and beyond to help you prepare for the future by matching your pension contribution up to 10% of your salary.

Holidays and work life balance: starting at 25 days holiday (in addition to your bank holidays) you will move to 30 days after being part of our team for 5 years. But more than that – we offer a genuine commitment to working with you on a working pattern and model that suits you and the business best. Currently 51% of our employees work part time or term time, and many others have individual working arrangements that, most importantly, still get the job done.

Perks!: all of our employees have a fully funded subscription to Perkbox Sapphire (their top package) +Medical. This little gem (get it?) is taxable benefit but we cover that part of it for you. Through Perkbox we offer - among many other benefits - free access to:

- Aura, the mindfulness app
- magpie for personalised professional development
- Boxx for online workout and wellness classes.

We also offer access to confidential counselling support and, through the Medical package, online access to a GP 24/7.

You also get a free “birthday box” (on your birthday naturally!) and other weekly treats – who isn’t up for a free Greggs sausage roll or drink from Café Nero?

There are also a whole host of discounts on shopping and other purchases to stretch your salary that little bit further.

How to apply?

It’s simple really – just send in your CV with a covering statement to tell us why you are applying and why you think this is the role for you, and send to [email protected].

  • Closing date: Friday 29th October 2021
  • Interview dates: Thursday 4th and Friday 5th November 2021
