At Thames Reach we are committed to helping homeless and vulnerable people to live in decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Our vision is to end street homelessness and our aim is to deliver high quality, effective services to vulnerable people.
We are looking for an enthusiastic assistant support worker to join the team at Martha Jones House, our state of the art newly built hostel in Vauxhall.

You will be supported and trained to use your communication and creative problem-solving skills and will receive regular supervision to both guide your work and encourage and facilitate your personal development.
This is a sometimes challenging but extremely rewarding role that requires you to support our service users to view their stay in a hostel as temporary, to encourage them to become more independent and self-sufficient.

As well as a great working environment we offer:

Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect, and celebrate diversity.
