Job description

Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic our work is more crucial now than ever before. In order to help more individuals to get back into paid employment and provide a route out of homelessness, we are expanding the Employment Team.

 

The expansion of our Employment Advisory Team (known internally as Employment Specialists) is one of the steps we are taking to continue providing individualised, recovery focused support to our clients. We support people affected by homelessness to overcome the barriers to paid employment. These barriers are often complex and may include a lack of literacy and numeracy skills, poor health, substance abuse, and a lack of access to practical resources. Equally those affected by homelessness often face prejudice from employers. St Mungo's Employment Team plays a crucial role in the organisation providing tailored and individualised support whist building relationships with employers to see beyond perceived experiences.

 

We are looking for inspirational and committed people to join the team and work with us towards our vision of ending homelessness.

 

If you offer excellent stakeholder and relationship management skills, in particular partnering with employers and training providers to support people, and have the ability to assess and manage a varied caseload we would like to hear from you.

 

We currently have Employment Specialist and Senior Employment Specialist roles available in Brighton, Leicester and Oxford.

 

Visit St Mungo's website to view the details of the roles and apply. Current vacancies include:

 

Brighton - Senior Employment Advisor

Oxford and Reading - Senior Employment Advisor

 

Closing Date: 10am, Wednesday 5 May 2021
