Job description

Are you looking to start your career supporting vulnerable adults; working for a charity who makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless every day?  

We have roles available in Hackney, Brent, Southwark and Lewisham.

The St Mungo’s Pan London Rough Sleeping Teams (No Second Night Out and Somewhere Safe to Stay) provide a rapid response service, intervening to ensure no one needs to sleep rough. We are currently looking for people to join our teams as Night Assessment Workers in our No Second Night Out Assessment Hubs. In these roles you will: 

  • Work as part of a busy team environment working closely with those affected by rough sleeping. 

  • Provide a safe and supportive environment at night to clients; carrying out assessment when clients first arrive out the service.  

  • Work on a 7 day weekly night rota pattern with an average of 3 waking night shifts in a row (for example 8pm–8.30am or 9pm–8am) 

About you 

These crucial roles will suit people with an interest in in developing key skills to build a career working in a support role, as well as:  

  • Some experience of dealing directly with the public and/or customers in a busy service environment. 

  • Good communication skills and the ability to work with others effectively to get things done.  

  • Some understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerably housed people and the difficulties they experience in accessing services.  

  • You don’t need to have direct experience, above all we are looking for inspirational, committed individuals who have a genuine desire to support people to transform their lives.
