Embedded in Primary Care, Community Health Teams, and the wider community you will be delivering employment support to clients in parallel to the health treatment being delivered by NHS clinicians. Working intensively with a maximum caseload of 25-30 clients who have a health condition which impacts on their ability to gain work, assisting them to obtain and sustain employment that is consistent with their vocational goals, following the eight principles of IPS. Meeting and exceeding performance targets for referrals, engagements, programme starts, employer engagement, job starts and sustainment, in compliance with contractual guidelines and quality procedures.

The programme is a Randomised Control Trial (RCT), which means that all individuals referred into the trial will be randomly allocated to either a treatment group or a control group, therefore Employment Specialists must adhere to the trial protocol and guidelines.

The aim of the trial is to evidence employment as a heath outcome in line with the NHS Five Year Forward Plan.
