Job description

We have an exciting opportunity for a Caseworker to join the Ace of Clubs. We have 37.5 hours available per week, but we are happy to discuss flexible working. These hours are to be worked Monday through Friday, and the shift pattern is typically 09:00am to 16:30pm. We are open every weekday of the year, including bank holidays and Christmas, therefore providing essential support to people at the times that they need it most.

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of people in need? Do you want to work with others to create a better future for themselves? If so, then we have the opportunity for you.

You will ideally need experience; however, we appreciate that not everyone will tick every box. If you think you can do most of what we are looking for, then go ahead and apply, as you could be exactly what we need!

About the role:

This role is based at our centre a short walk from Clapham Common tube station, in London. We support homeless people from the local area and further afield. Our services are open access, so the people who come to the Ace of Clubs are diverse and from multiple walks of life. Subsequently, their needs can be complex, so we are looking for a skilled communicator who can support people settling from chaotic lifestyles. Our purpose at the Ace of Clubs is to address people’s basic human needs by providing food, clothing, toiletries, and practical support. We help people link up with housing, healthcare, education, and employment. Our Caseworkers work to help individuals overcome barriers to achieving wellbeing, whether it be through guidance in the support system, learning new skills or simply finding internal purpose. The ultimate aim of our work is to reduce people’s dependence on our service, helping them move toward independence.

As a small team, we work collaboratively, where you will have the opportunity to grow, thrive and perform through effective conversations and honest feedback underpinned by trust. We work in an environment that will stretch you both personally and professionally, and all you need is to bring your natural talent to work with people. 

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of vulnerable groups and expect all colleagues to share this commitment. Appointment to the post will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced check via the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Interpersonal skills, the ability to communicate clearly, and a commitment to upholding professional boundaries are essential requirements of the role. Employees and volunteers at the Ace of Clubs must also act with honesty, respect, reliability and a non-judgemental approach combined with the ability to deal with challenging behaviour in a non-confrontational.

What we offer:

  • London Living Wage 
  • Free lunch
  • NEST pension provision 
  • 20 days per year plus 8 days off in lieu of bank holidays
  • Flexible working options
  • Enhanced sick pay allowances

We aim for our workforce to reflect the diverse and vibrant group of people that we support. We want you to have every opportunity to shine and show us your talents, so please let us know if we can do anything to make the recruitment process work for you.

If you think you can do this remarkable job for us, we would love to hear from you…

We reserve the right to close this vacancy early, if we receive enough suitable applications to take forward to interview prior to the published closing date.
