About us
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

Crisis Skylight South Yorkshire are a dynamic innovative team that go the extra mile to support people out of their homelessness for good. Our experienced and diverse team work closely to provide a wraparound service that is personally tailored to individual needs. Our innovative education, employment, housing and well-being services address individual needs and help homeless people transform their lives.

About the role
Crisis is recruiting for a Construction Skills Tutor to develop and deliver an engaging and varied programme for members across South Yorkshire. As the Construction Skills Tutor, you will provide our members coming out of homelessness with appropriate teaching and training on accredited and non-accredited learning programmes with a focus on delivering construction, DIY and upcycling qualifications.

This is an exciting role which will give the post holder the opportunity to deliver practical skills training to support people in and around the home. This will in turn support homeless and vulnerably housed people develop their confidence, self-esteem and inter-personal skills.

This is a full time position (35 hours per week), but would consider part time hours. 

About you
For this role, we’re looking for someone with really practical skills and experience, and someone who is keen to share their knowledge with others. We’re open to this role being adapted to meet the post holder’s experience and skillsets; be that in painting/decorating, carpentry, joinery, plumbing, electrics, etc. then we’re keen to hear from you.
Ideally you will have a formal teaching qualification e.g. (PTTLS or above) or a formal L3 qualification or above in a relevant vocational area. However, if you don’t currently hold a qualification, but you have some experience of teaching/training people and you’re willing to work towards this, we’ll be happy to support you with this.

Experience of working with vulnerable clients, or an understanding of the issues affecting homeless people is desirable but not essential. The ideal candidate will be committed to empowering homeless people through the development of life and social skills and participation in engagement and learning activities.

We believe diversity is a strength and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness. 

Working at Crisis
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:
· Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
· Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
· 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
