Do you have experience supporting vulnerable adults? Interested in being part of the wider modern slavery conversation?

Our client is the largest provider of accommodation and outreach support to those who experienced Modern Slavery in London. Due to their Underground Lives report presented in the commons and wider media coverage and awareness, the need for their service has grown massively in the last 2 years. Because of this their team is growing too.

You don’t need experience within modern slavery. They just want people who are passionate about supporting vulnerable adults, someone who can relate to the complexity of the situation of people in crisis.

If you have experience supporting people who are/have experienced mental health, homelessness, substance misuse or similar in either a paid or volunteering capacity and want to be part of a service which continuously develops new and innovative projects and services, they want to hear from you! As one of their Outreach Advocates, you will genuinely help change people’s lives across London.

They welcome applications from candidates with lived experience.

Person specification:

  • Experience or knowledge of providing advice and support to vulnerable clients, including crisis management and risk assessment.
  • Awareness of the impact of crime on victims, witnesses, and the wider community.
  • Comfortable using computerised systems and databases to accurately record information.
  • Experience of using MS Office
  • Knowledge and understanding of safeguarding issues and ability to address them appropriately.

If you want to do an ASYE and you fit the criteria, then they will support you to join their existing programme.

In return they offer a competitive salary, a supportive working environment and a host of benefits including pension, employee discounts, 25 days holiday per annum (for full-time positions) plus the option to buy an additional 3 weeks, cycle to work scheme and season ticket loan.

Our client is proud to be a Disability Confident employer.

Hours: 39 hours per week

Working Pattern: Monday to Friday, on call for 1 week approximately every 4 months

Closing date: Ongoing recruitment - candidates will be interviewed as and when, until the end of the year.
