About the role

This is a permanent part-time opportunity working 21 hours/ week (across 3 days), and will be based at Foyer in Chippendale

The role of Outcomes Coach involves working with Youth Development Coaches to prepare a young person for exiting Foyer Central. A critical part of the role is to document the outcomes (in accommodation, education, employment) of Foyer Central students for a 12-month period after they exit the program. This will involve engaging with and contacting young people regularly in the 12 months after they exit (and also their employers or other relevant organisations) and collecting information about their housing, employment and education status.

The role requires building strong relationships with young people and supporting them through Foyer Central’s exit processes, in order to collect specific data about them over the next 12 months. Accurate outcomes data is essential to the success of Foyer Central and will also ensure future investment in Foyers in NSW by both government and social investors.
