This is an opportunity to gain a wide range of experience within the homeless sector, ranging from support work in hostels, supported housing, community support and day services, and assisting in the practical running of services, including cleaning and catering.

Thames Reach is looking to expand our pool of sessional staff. Should you be successful, you may be asked to work across a variety of projects within Thames Reach, potentially to assist vulnerable people towards further independence, whether that be in obtaining employment, finding a home, or accessing the services they need, or in the practical day to day running of our services.

Sessional staff are an important part of our organisational teams, providing greater flexibility in how we can respond to our service users and ensure we can provide effective services at all times. As a sessional worker, the hours and frequency of your work will vary. This is in response to the needs of our service users, the development of our services and changes in staffing; for example:

• The development and setting up of new services

• Personalised support to a service user

• Staff cover at times of leave and higher demand

Such a position may be ideal for you if you wish to work flexibly or if you have other commitments and want to have your work fit around these.

You will find on our website, role descriptions for our Support Workers, and cleaning and domestic staff within Thames Reach. Expectations for our sessional staff are consistent with these job descriptions.

 

We will be holding ongoing interviews for sessional staff, please submit your completed forms as soon as you can. We welcome applications at all times and regularly hold interview days. Download and return the completed application form and return by midnight on the closing date to recruitment@thamesreach.org.uk
