About St Giles

An ambitious, well-established charity that helps people facing adversity to find jobs, homes and the right support they need. Central to our ethos is our belief that people with first-hand experience of successfully overcoming issues such as an offending background, homelessness, addictions and gang involvement, hold the key to positive change in others. 


We firmly believe that Peer Advisors bring something special to our services, increasing engagement, having more time to spend with clients and becoming role models to their peers. The Trust makes a strong commitment to our Peer Advisors so that they too are supported on their own journey, and our Peer Advisors have an excellent record in progressing into work.

  • Ability to work collaboratively with colleagues to achieve organisational goals, and to resolve conflicts of interest professionally.
  • Excellent time management, prioritisation and communication skills, both verbal and written
