Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.
 
At Home Group it’s critical we continue to deliver services for our customers during the COVID-19 outbreak, and our awesome colleagues are at the very heart of making that happen. We need Brilliant People like you to join us (and not just during this challenging time). We are doing things a little differently at the moment, so to keep you, our customers and ourselves safe we’ll engage with you digitally where possible.
 
We have a fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team, based in Yeovil, The Link Wellbeing and Support Services provide support to customers who are homeless or who have experienced homelessness.
 
As a Health Coach, you will role focus on supporting customers with their health and wellbeing. Our aim is to deliver long-term positive solutions for the people we work with and measure our success not by the number of people we support, but through the positive outcomes they achieve. We support our customers to build their own personal resilience, improve lifestyle choices and prepare for independence by building on their own individual skills.
 
Customer quote
“The Link has started building my confidence and enabled me to help others whilst helping myself, something which has otherwise been very difficult for me to achieve given my disabilities. The support I have received has been very special to me”
 
About our team
You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team of Health Coaches, HAP coordinators, a Hospital Discharge Coordinator and established volunteers, who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements.” We’re there for each other too!”
 
Working hours
You’ll be working 22.5 hours per week based at The Link assisting in running group sessions and events. The hours can be flexible providing that you are able to cover the required sessions.
 
Bank
Looking for a more flexible working pattern? You can also join us on a flexible basis by being part of our bank.  You can work hours that fit around your current commitments or even pick up some additional shifts to your main role to earn some extra cash and get paid on a weekly basis.
 
About you
You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.
 
We help change our customer’s lives for the better. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, and their needs and aspirations. You’ll work with our Senior Support Workers and external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference! To keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!)
 
To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in this environment before. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!

As this is a community-based role, you’ll need to travel around to spend time with your customers. You could do this role using public transport, or if you drive and have access to a car that would also be amazing! (we pay your expenses to cover this use!)
 
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
