CHART is a Community-led Local Development Programme with access to European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) to support projects that bring a fresh approach to tackling deep-rooted problems which conventional working has not managed to solve. It is particularly focused on:
- helping disadvantaged people to find and keep work locally
- helping disadvantaged people to start a business or set up as self-employed
- stimulating the local economy to create jobs suitable for local people
About the Syrian Resettlement Employability Program
Since 2015, the council has been working as part of the national Syrian Resettlement Programme to resettle vulnerable people displaced by the conflict in Syria.
100 refugees have been resettled in Hastings and the project is continuing to support them to integrate within the local community and become fully self-sufficient.
About the role
We are looking for someone who is motivated to improve the life chances of vulnerable people to join the Syrian Resettlement Programme as an employability coach.
You’ll work with a range of partners to deliver holistic support for refugees who need support to access the employment and financial stability. This will ensure that clients feel confident, empowered and able to integrate into the wider community and contribute towards the local economy.
