We are looking for a personable self-organiser to take up the job of ‘Journey Guide’ (jobs broker and coach – ref no GV/JG2) on the Accelerate project!

It’s great timing actually – following on from Libby’s Accelerate story, which we told last week. Here is a short video which gives an idea of how rewarding the Journey Guide role can be and what a difference it makes to people’s lives.

The purpose of your job will be:

  • To inspire and enlist North Warwickshire employers and workplaces so that they will employ and support people who have learning disabilities.
  • To enable people with learning disabilities to seek and gain employment.
