Social Enterprise Kent has established itself over the recent past as one of the main social enterprise bodies in Kent, giving advice to many charities and budding enterprises, and running training and employment services. We are a passionate believer in the power of social enterprise to effect positive change in our communities, and the importance of partnership working in all sectors.

Social Enterprise Kent is currently delivering on 2 specific employability projects. We are the lead partner on Lots More to Offer, a project to help mature workers over the age of 45, back into employment or education.

We are also a subcontractor on Let’s Get Working, a project led by Sussex Community development Association (SCDA).  SCDA has secured funding to provide intensive and ongoing practical employment support for disadvantaged people with health conditions or disabilities to move into sustainable volunteering, education, training or employment. The project will follow the principles of social prescribing to enable SCDA and its subcontractors to engage with those who will benefit from it the most. Effective relationships with the medical and health sectors are central to the success of the project.

Both of these projects are funded by the Big Lottery Fund and European Social Fund (ESF) as part of the Building Better Opportunities (BBO) programme.

The Project Manager for Employability will work on a 50:50 basis on both of these projects, leading the day-to-day running of the BBO employability team, working with a wide range of partners and stakeholders, to ensure that the department successfully delivers on its ambitions. 
Both of these projects are funded until 31st December 2019. This post is therefore funded until that date, and whilst we are hopeful of winning and delivering future employability projects, we cannot offer any guarantee of work being available after this date.
