Waking Nights Relief Support Worker
Salary: £145.48 per night shift Hours: 8pm – 8am
Chichester and Bognor Hostel
We are seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and willing team of Relief Support Workers who want to gain experience in the field of homelessness prevention and can work flexibly across our services to deliver high-quality support to people who are homeless, or facing homelessness, working with them towards sustainable independence and wellbeing.
The role will include the day to day running of our projects, supporting rough sleepers and vulnerably housed people to access our services, and working with a diverse team to create a safe, secure and welcoming environment for all residents and visitors. This is the perfect opportunity if you want to gain experience working in frontline services or are beginning a career in homelessness or social work.
Ideally (but not essential) you will have experience working with vulnerable people, in particular those with mental health or substance misuse issues. You will be prepared to work flexible hours within a busy and often chaotic environment, with a working knowledge of safeguarding issues. Most importantly, you have the desire to work with the truly vulnerable and marginalised in our community with a positive, problem-solving attitude.
Our services are based in Chichester and Bognor Regis, and we are looking for people who are able to work flexible hours, with a regular commitment to the overall aim of ending homelessness.
