Job Coaching

At Enable we provide ongoing support for both the employee and employer, beyond just the first stages of searching for a job and entering into employment. This can be through the application of our qualified Job Coaches.

Job Coaches assist with many aspects of the service, including skilling up the individual for the role and breaking tasks down into manageable bite-sized chunks. The job coach provides help with on-site training and making sure that information (i.e. inductions programmes) are presented to the individual in a format that they are able to understand and refer to. Job Coaches help clients to maintain their employment through on-site assistance and other workplace supports - offering ongoing help and job retention services. This can include the coordination of monthly or weekly progress reviews between the employer and employee.

A Job Coach provides a valuable link for the employer, making sure any concerns from either party are addressed quickly and efficiently. Job Coaches can benefit the employer greatly by helping to handle difficult situations, even when they are challenging to approach. Job coaches are also able to provide a range of training courses to employers for their staff. By carrying out disability awareness courses, companies can be supported in developing strategies relating to disability in the workplace.

Our Job Coaches offer clients a trustworthy person to share any problems with and receive any guidance from, with the knowledge that they are looking out for their best interests, health and wellbeing.
