St Mungo’s supports individuals experiencing, or who have experienced, homelessness.Our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions. As a homelessness charity and housing association, our clients are at the heart of what we do, and in 2019 we supported nearly 30,000 people who were either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Our staff are crucial to making this happen.

In addition St Mungo’s promises excellent development and growth opportunities and a truly inclusive workplace. We’re proud to have recently been recognised as a Top50 UK Inclusive Employer 2020/21 – and we’re committed to further drive forward diversity initiatives to continuously improve our performance in this area.

We are looking for Night Workers to support us to deliver our services in Reading either as permanent employees or on a part-time flexible basis as a locum worker.  

This is a really crucial role within the service and an excellent opportunity for anyone who is looking to develop their career in the sector. You may have experience of working within a similar role or may have worked in other night accommodation / security type positions.

Key responsibilities include:

  • To provide cover to the hostel at night, ensuring the support and safety of the residents and the building. The post-holder will be responsible for controlling and/or monitoring access to the building, dealing with emergencies, carrying out Health and Safety checks and communicating any concerns or events to the rest of the team.
  • Spending time talking to the residents; supporting the key worker role with clients likely to be seen more at night or with specific supportive targets in relation to clients that may be seen during the night shift..
  • Supporting clients in crisis situations, liaising with emergency services if needed, reporting and recording it by using local practices such log book, Opal, etc., and handing it over to day staff.

Who we’re looking for

We are working hard to create a diverse and fully inclusive culture where all staff feel valued and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

To be successful in this role you will require:

  • Good communication skills with the ability to respond and interact effectively with residents and colleagues.
  • Good administrative skills and ability to maintain clear and accurate records.
  • The ability to remain reliable, awake and alert at all times during your shift
