 About Shaw Trust  

At Shaw Trust we believe everyone has the right to live a decent and dignified life and an opportunity for rewarding work. We are a social purpose organisation challenging inequality and breaking down barriers to enable social mobility.

Having grown from humble beginnings in 1982 in the village of Shaw in Wiltshire, finding jobs for disabled people, today we are a complex and diverse charity committed to employment as the core pathway to a better life.  For us being part of the solution is about creating the conditions for this to happen, advocating and delivering services that make a real difference. Working in partnership not competition, we are part of an eco-system of purpose-led organisations, striving for a fairer, more equal society centred on opportunity for all.

Role Purpose

Working with a range of young people as directed by a Team Manager, you will be responsible for delivering a range of IAG, work related learning and enterprise activities to ensure young people remain in and progress into employment, education or training.


This role focuses on young people who are NEET or vulnerable to NEET due to particular needs and providing specific services to young people that have been purchased by an educational institution or other customer.


To deliver the role you will provide 1:1 impartial information, advice, guidance and ongoing case load support to ensure young people remain in or progress into employment, education or training. You will undertake small/large group work activities including presentations and engage employer’s programmes for young people in education to help young people move into employment or contribute career educational programmes.
