The Department for Communities is recruiting to fill approximately 350 full-time Fixed Term EO2 Work Coach positions.

It is intended these Fixed Term appointments will be for three years with the possibility of extension. Any change to the length of the appointment period will be communicated to staff in advance.

As a Work Coach, you will support Universal Credit claimants to prepare for work, secure employment, maintain sustained employment, progress and become more financially independent.

This is a great opportunity to work in roles that are both demanding and rewarding in the Department for Communities which plays an important role in the lives of many people and communities in Northern Ireland. The Department’s common purpose is “Supporting People Building Communities, Shaping Places”.
