Do you have a passion for working with people and helping to end homelessness for rough sleepers? If so, St Mungo’s is the workplace for you.

An exciting opportunity is available to join the outreach team in the London borough of Hammersmith & Fulham; working with accommodation providers and the local authority, to reduce rough sleeping to as close to zero as possible.

The team operates across the entire borough, providing an assertive street outreach service to those sleeping on the streets.  This work is carried out within a multi-agency partnership framework and through targeted street outreach.  You will also work towards reducing anti-social behaviour and hotspots associated with rough sleeping, as well as support clients off the streets and enable them to reach their life goals.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual, who has experience working with either rough sleepers, hard to reach groups and/or those with multiple and complex needs.  You will also have an ability to both lone and team work and to initiate and maintain effective working relationships with colleagues, clients, the community, the police and other external agencies. 

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.

Flexibility is required as you will be working outreach shifts at unsocial hours.
