We are recruiting up to six Pod Leader trainees. You will work with people on the front-line and be instrumental in effecting organisational change including growing the organisation, business strategy and operational improvements.
Likewise works with people who have been traditionally marginalised from mainstream society, such as those experiencing mental ill health, homelessness, addiction and social isolation.
Our approach is based on the principles of acceptance and belonging, continual and active learning, human-to-human relationships, and practical support. We have a unique workplace culture which is open, optimistic and emotionally intelligent and which allows these principles to flourish at the frontline. As a result we are able to work with our clients as mutual learners, supporting them to make the changes in their lives that matter to them.
We have developed our working methods over the last five years and are now looking for highly motivated, creative and caring individuals to come in and shape our future. Be a part of the next generation of health and social care; help to drive us forward as we expand as an organisation and widen our impact.

This has been difficult at times as it requires a lot of energy (both physically and emotionally) but I've also learnt a hell of a lot: about our clients and the issues that they face, but also about myself, my own strengths and vulnerabilities.
“I have also found that Likewise is a very open organisation. Not only have I been told that I should be myself with colleagues and clients, but also that it is only by authenticity that I can have an impact on others.” (Hugo, 2015 Discovery Graduate)
