Maximus is one of the leading employability organisations in the UK. Our advisors make a real difference to people’s lives, building up candidates’ skills and confidence for the world of work.

We’re seeking Employment Advisors to join our friendly, dedicated team to help people find suitable, sustainable and meaningful employment.

About the role.

You will meet candidates to understand their needs and challenges — supporting, guiding and inspiring them to overcome their barriers to secure meaningful employment. 

This will involve creating a development plan with each candidate, securing specialist help (from within Maximus or from partner organisations) and identifying career opportunities which reflect their skills, experience and interests.

What we look for.
What we offer.
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal and influencing skills
  • Creative problem-solving skills and a positive approach to challenging and overcoming limiting beliefs
  • Customer focus and commitment to customer care
  • Computer, organisational, numeracy and literacy skills
  • Experience of working to structured targets and deadlines 

This role would suit a strong team player with a positive and flexible approach. Someone with experience of people development — confident to listen, question and build relationships.

  • Medicash healthcare cash plan

    All colleagues can save money on a range of treatments and services, and claim reimbursements for dental, optical, physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractor, homeopathy and other consultations.

  • Wellbeing benefits

    Colleagues have access to Ability First, an internal service to support colleagues in overcoming barriers at work.

    We offer a nine-month support programme called Able Futures, to help people manage and overcome their mental health challenges within the workplace.

    All colleagues have access to a premium Headspace account, where they can access more than 1,000 hours of mindfulness, health and sleep content.

    As a voluntary benefit, also offer comprehensive physical and mental health assessments, provided by Nuffield Health.

  • Progression opportunities

    We have a dedicated online learning portal to support self-directed learning to learn new skills and spark your inspiration. We also offer accredited apprenticeships and have a structured MentorU programme that give colleagues an opportunity to learn from senior leaders across Maximus.

  • Annual Leave entitlement

    We offer 25 days annual leave, with the option to buy or sell up to five days of leave during the annual benefits window. To reward long-serving colleagues, your annual leave entitlement increases to 27 after five years with the company.
