As a ‘Project Worker’, you’ll make a real difference as you support and advise the young people we support and accommodate to support them in making the transition from dependent to independent living.
You’ll support individuals with a wide range of daily tasks such as cleaning and cooking, plan for their futures in many different ways such promoting them to access some form of education, training or employment, providing them with the knowledge of safety in the home, general life skills, budgeting and knowing how to pay bills. You’ll also support young people to make and attend appointments and support people to make their own decisions on their day to day lives.
As a ‘Project Worker’, you’ll be passionate about helping to shape the lives of young people. Although relevant experience, either voluntary or paid, is preferable, most important is that you’re able to engage with young people, be flexible, honest, patient and able to see situations from a young person's perspective and advocate on their behalf. The role of a Project Worker can be challenging, so you’ll also need to be non–judgemental, sensitive and confident of being able to support people during difficult times.
Our shift pattern includes days, nights and weekends on a rota basis.
We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, self-motivating and imaginative staff with a willingness to go the extra mile. You will possess excellent communication skills, be resilient, energetic and flexible in order to meet individual needs of young people who may present with challenging behaviours and complex needs.
We offer a comprehensive induction and training programme with on-going training to assist you in your role as a project worker.
