Job description

About the charity

Our mission is to build hope, enable lasting change, and end homelessness for people in East London. We are here to help people in our local community to build their new beginnings, by:

Providing a safe place - to make sure that people experiencing homelessness have somewhere safe to stay as they begin to rebuild their lives

Offering support - to encourage and enable people to build a better future for themselves, through the provision of personalised support, educational and life skills opportunities

Building resilience – to build networks of support, and empower people to navigate services with confidence and be a proactive member of their community outside of and beyond life at Caritas Anchor House.

We are going through an exciting period of change and growth, having recently launched an ambitious strategic plan, with goals including having a positive impact on the lives of more people experiencing homelessness than ever before.

With great ambition comes the need for great people, and we’re looking for some fantastic people to join one of our newest and growing teams to provide informal support to our residents and working closely with our Customer Services, Facilities and other team members, to contribute towards creating a welcoming and safe environment.

About the role

This role works alongside Support Workers to promote resident engagement through the development of positive relationships with our residents and contributing towards the promotion of a fulfilling, safe and inclusive environment with a particular focus on communal areas and optimising use of facilities.

Benefits include access to the pension scheme, learning and development opportunities, a weekly wellbeing hour as well as other wellbeing support.

Please note that this role will be working in our women's only service, therefore this post is only available to applicants whose gender identity is female as permitted under the Equality Act 2010.

About you

To be successful in this role you will need to have some experience of dealing directly with the public and/or clients or customers in a busy service environment. You will also need to have some experience of dealing with complex and difficult behaviours in relation to people.

You will also need good IT skills (particularly Microsoft Office packages) and an understanding of; and empathy with the issues faced by people who experience homelessness or rough sleeping.

It would be an advantage if you had a full current driving license and qualifications relevant to supporting vulnerable adults.

Key skills:

  • Ability to interact and communicate effectively with a wide variety of people at all levels, maintaining professional boundaries
  • The willingness to develop skills to support people who may be in difficult personal or emotional situations.
  • A genuine interest in helping vulnerable adults to make changes in their life and the ability to maintain enthusiasm for a high level of contact with clients on a day-to-day basis. The willingness to develop these skills.

This position does require an ability and willingness to work shifts including evenings and weekends on a rota basis.

About applying

To apply, please e-mail your CV and supporting statement outlining how you meet the skills, knowledge, and experience to be successful in this role.

To have an informal discussion about this opportunity, discuss any access requirements for disabled applicants with our recruitment process, please ring 020 74647 6062.

At Caritas Anchor House, we are proud of our inclusive workplace where we celebrate difference, value everyone’s contribution, and where people of all backgrounds and cultures can thrive. We do not accept discrimination or harassment, and all our recruitment decisions are based on fair and open competition, with appointments on merit. We are committed to growing our workplace further by making sure that our teams are as diverse and inclusive as they can be. We welcome applications from everyone and encourage people with lived experience of homelessness, a disability, and from ethnic minority backgrounds to apply. This is to ensure we are taking positive action in order to achieve our legitimate aim of a balanced representation in our teams, at all levels. We want to foster a culture in which everyone is united around our shared mission and values, and in which our people are active participants in our success.
