The ClementJames Centre is an award winning charity that empowers the community to release its potential in one of London’s most disadvantaged areas. Our vision is for everyone in our community to release their potential and live fulfilled lives. We achieve this through providing education, employment and wellbeing support to over 3,000 local people each year in a safe and compassionate space.
We help people to gain meaningful and sustainable employment. This enables our clients to improve their quality of life, security and independence. We offer tailored advice and support, mentoring and work skills activities.
Children & Young People’s Education
We help young people to learn, flourish and achieve their potential. This allows them to feel fulfilled and have the opportunities to build the future that they choose. We provide academic support, mentoring and aspirational activities.
Wellbeing & Support
We empower people to overcome barriers and challenges and to engage with their own wellbeing. This enables our clients to pursue their goals. We do this through the provision of Information, Advice and Guidance, and wellbeing support and activities.
We support adults to improve their English, Maths and ICT skills. This gives our students the confidence and knowledge to help them succeed and strengthens their place in the community. We offer a wide range of Functional Skills courses and intensive literacy and numeracy support.
We are looking for a Staff Support Worker to offer confidential one-to-one support to members of our staff team who work with people from the community dealing with complex issues.
This support includes, but is not limited to:
- Providing emotional support to client-facing staff in delivery roles who work across a number of core areas including housing, employment, numeracy and literacy, and advice, while also offering well-being support.
- Supporting staff to understand their personal and professional boundaries when working with people from the community to preserve a separation between work and personal life.
- Offering psychoeducation covering themes such as working with trauma, understanding stress and learning about compassion-focused skills.
- Understanding core areas related to staff safeguarding, such as burnout and compassion fatigue and, where appropriate, provide suggestions to senior management regarding reasonable adjustments.
Please be advised that this is neither a counselling nor supervision role, although skills from both these disciplines will support you in your role.
If you are a registered member or an accredited member of the BACP or another appropriate professional body (e.g. UKCP, HPC), can demonstrate knowledge of safeguarding policies and procedures and if you hold a graduate or post-graduate level Counselling Diploma or equivalent, then we would love to hear from you.
We are looking for someone to support our staff team on a part-time basis for 6 hours a week. This would be either from 11am – 6pm on one day with an hour’s lunch break (preferably Thursdays); or 2 – 5pm across two afternoons.
