About Jimmy’s Cambridge

Jimmy’s Cambridge is one of Cambridge’s leading providers of support and accommodation to people who are and have been experiencing homelessness. We aim to help people get people off the streets and into their own home, backed up with all the support we can offer from our talented and committed team of staff, volunteers and partners.

The Role

This post is an exciting new role which will help support and tackle mental health issues amongst Jimmy’s residents, of both our hostels and our community based accommodation. As we move to a more psychologically informed environment, led by our new Head of Services, we aim to offer more on-site mental health support, enabling our residents to recover and move on with their lives.  

About You

You will have a relevant qualification ideally in mental health nursing or social work. This will be backed up with experience in supporting people with complex needs, including people who are experiencing both mental health issues and who are tackling alcohol and substance misuse. You will be excellent at building relationships with people, taking time to get to know people to work out how you can provide the help they need, including accessing related services.

Overarching this, the person will come with a genuine understanding and interest in people who are experiencing homelessness.

How to Apply

To apply, please send us your CV, a supporting statement on no more than 2 sides setting out how you meet the requirements set out in the Person Specification, and an Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form. Closing date for applications is 9am on 21 May 2021. Candidates will be informed on the afternoon of 21 May if they are being invited to an interview. In-person interviews will be held at one of our sites in central Cambridge on 27 May 2021.
