Do you have experience of working with vulnerable adults and are looking to take the next step in your career?

Would you like to join the leading charity in the homelessness sector and play a pivotal role in transforming the lives of people who have or are experiencing homelessness?

If the answer is yes we could have the ideal role for you.

We are currently looking to recruit to a number of Project Worker positions in 2 hostels within the Camden Hostel Pathway; Endsleigh Gardens and Birkenhead Street. The services provide accommodation for male and female rough sleepers, many of whom have complex needs including alcohol and substance misuse, mental health and sex working.

About the role

As a Project Worker, you will provide high-quality support, care and advice for our clients that focuses on their strengths and goals, and is delivered in a way that suits them. You will organise and undertake formal and informal key working activities in a way that effectively encourages engagement, and promotes opportunities for ongoing support. Working in partnership with a multidisciplinary team of support staff, specialist staff and external partners you will be responsible for supporting the working shift pattern of the hostel, whilst holding a case load of clients from the hostel. Flexibility is required, as you'll be working a shift rota that includes weekends and public holidays.

What are we looking for?

To succeed in these highly rewarding roles you will have an excellent understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerably housed people - you may have had personal experience of homelessness yourself. You will have some experience of helping vulnerable people to identify personal goals and supporting them through a process of change. You will also have a sound understanding of the support needs of people with low incomes, including rent payments/arrears and professional boundary issues.

Above all we are looking for inspirational, committed individuals who have a genuine desire to support people to transform their lives.

What can you expect?

We offer a range of benefits including highly competitive pay, a pension scheme, staff discount schemes and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. Your career development is of paramount importance to us and we will provide you with a wide range of learning and development opportunities to support your growth. You will receive a comprehensive induction to connect you with St Mungo's and your role, and will have access to high quality in-house training covering all aspects of working with our clients along with other core skills. We also offer an internal mentoring scheme, career development workshops and a wide range of additional 'bite-sized' and easy access learning opportunities.

If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for the leading charity in the sector we would love to hear from you.
