Do you want to end homelessness and make a difference to people’s lives?
Are you highly motivated, empathic and looking for a challenge?
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 achieve the highest standards and effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people.
We are recruiting a Support Worker for our Waterloo Project, a 19 bed space hostel where we support clients to make positive changes in their lives and move on to more independent and longer term accommodation.
Successful candidates will be highly motivated, committed and well organised, with some knowledge and experience of working with homeless people.
This can be a challenging and an extremely rewarding role that requires you to support our clients to view their stay in a hostel as temporary, to encourage them to become more independent and self-sufficient.
You will work morning, middle and late shifts during the week and the weekend.
You will have
– The ability to provide a flexible and responsive service to meet the needs of hostel residents.
– Excellent communication and creative problem solving skills enabling you to create options for people where these may be hard to find.
– Excellent interpersonal skills and commitment to working with service users.
– The confidence, enthusiasm and ability to manage a case load of complex service users.
– The ability to work within a team and to ensure health and safety requirements are followed.
– Excellent I.T. skills
– A desire to develop your knowledge and skills.
Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect, and celebrate diversity. We welcome and encourage applicants from all sections of the community regardless of their history of homelessness, sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, or religious belief.
