We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the Southwest, working with over 1,500 young people.

What you will be doing:
• By confidently and passionately engaging with young people, using a creative and flexible approach to support, you will facilitate lots of varied positive engagement over weekends.
• By being well organised, efficient, and effective, you will help our Project Workers with support and a whole host of housing management tasks, from running an activity to helping clean a room. • By being vigilant and responsible, you will ensure the security of the building when on shift. • Using your understanding of the complex needs of young people, as well as your problem-solving skills, you will manage challenging behaviour within the project when it happens.
• By co-ordinating and co-delivering activities on site, including co-ordination of residents’ meetings, you will work with individuals and groups of young people within the projects so that they are encouraged to meaningfully occupy their time with specific regard to education, employment and training.
