CANDIDATE EMPLOYMENT COSTS

The Job Coach

The Living Link recommends that a job coach sensitises the co-workers before the member commences with work.

We suggest 6 initial job-coaching sessions of 1 hour in the first month. This is dependent on the adult, their abilities and the company’s procedures and can differ for each individual. Thereafter 2 hours of job coaching per month for the next 3 months and a 1 hour session per month thereafter for the remainder of a year’s period. If further job coaching is required this is easily negotiated.

We do not charge a placement fee to companies. Job Coaching is charged out at @ R750.00 per hour.
