Vacancy – Personal Guidance Professional

Vacancy – Personal Guidance Professional - 14th June 2019



We are looking to appoint a Personal Guidance Professional to provide high quality, independent CEG to enable students in a variety of schools across West Yorkshire to make informed, realistic decisions about their future learning and employment pathways.


The successful candidate may have previous experience when it comes to Careers Education and Guidance but could also be a graduate candidate who is passionate about changing and shaping the lives for our young people. Candidates already possessing the QCF Level 6 Diploma in Careers Guidance and Development will find themselves at a distinct advantage. However, training for the role and relevant qualifications will be provided and funded for the right candidate!


This is a good opportunity for someone who has had experience in education or, alternatively, no experience but looking to progress and develop the skills and qualifications required to become an effective aspirational careers advice coach. Initially you will be trained as part of a team at Minsthorpe Community College but then the team will become a Peripatetic one serving a further twenty nine schools in Wakefield, Barnsely and Kirklees and you will be working in a variety of different schools offering one-to-one guidance to students and helping the staff in these schools to be able to give up- to-date, informed CEG. The successful candidate will need to possess a clean driving licence and be prepared to move from school to school as directed. Young people tend to be bewildered by the amount of careers information that is currently out there- it is not that there is not enough information, it is that there is too much and the difficulty for them is knowing which information is trustworthy. Research shows that, when it comes to careers advice, most young people rely on their family, their friends, their peers and their teachers when what they really need is the advice given by impartial careers professionals. That is where you will come in.
