Are you a people person who is passionate about supporting young people to achieve their goals? Could you make a difference by providing careers information, advice and guidance to enable young people to make informed choices about their career journey? Can you motivate and raise aspirations? If, yes, we’d love to hear from you!

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 services to enable them to move forward into a range of positive outcomes.

It’s a rewarding role where you can make a real difference to young people’s lives – but it’s also delivering a service to ensure the contracts that we have with local schools are fulfilled to a high standard, so you need to have a high degree of personal resilience and determination to achieve those results.

What do we need from you?

Ideally: 

  • To hold a Level 6 qualification in careers guidance, or a willingness to undertake this qualification within agreed timescales as a Trainee Careers Adviser
  • Previous experience of working with young people either in a school or other setting
  • Awareness of the barriers that can affect young people progressing in learning and work.

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.
