Workforce Coach

Job Description

Workforce coaches believe in the Member’s wisdom and assist them in unlocking their potential. We believe Members own their individual goals and expectations and can change them. Coaching is a collaborative relationship that promotes Members making positive decisions for themselves by exploring options and information.

This role promotes positive relations and helps individuals seeking employment and professional advancement.

This role may also assist with program development and other subsets of membership as necessary.


Job Responsibilities

  • Provide the highest level of customer service.
  • Strengthen the Member’s wisdom, thought processes, and directed action toward the future based on the individual’s self-identified goals and management of barriers.
  • Create an environment that allows for inquiry, challenge, and the stimulation of critical thinking around new ways of being, thinking, and acting. Often, the result is new behaviors applicable to the Member’s life.
  • Focus on the Member’s job retention, career advancement, financial, life, and education goals by utilizing a variety of contact routines and methods as decided by the Member, including meeting in-person, virtually, or by phone.
  • Leverage social media, the USPS, family, or co-workers when necessary to ascertain the Member’s job performance and the identification of potential barriers.
  • Celebrate milestones and “wins” with Members.
  • Leverage an internal and external partner to promote and optimize Member efforts for success (financial coaching, spiritual advising, legal coordination, staffing specialist, behavior health), and external partners (i.e., community, employers) to determine the individual’s advancement potential.
