The role
We are looking for highly motivated, passionate, quick learning individuals to join our amazing high support team.
No two nights are the same. You will be working in a thriving environment and you will play a vital role in providing a listening ear to young people.

A typical day will include:

- 30 days holiday (pro rata for part time) [or a day in lieu if working a Bank Holiday])
- Pension contribution of 4%
- UK Healthcare Employee membership (Level 1)
- Relaxed dress code
- Regular supervision and yearly Personal Development Reviews
- A listening environment, with Annual Wellbeing Surveys

About you
You have empathy and understanding of the needs of homeless young people, young people leaving care, and the barriers they face. You like being around and working with young people.
While experience is always a bonus, it’s you as person, your life skills, your life experience and willingness to learn that counts!

You are passionate
You have a good sense of humour
You are not easily fazed
You are Resilient
You have good professional boundaries

Where and who?
You will be working in the High Support Team and line managed by the Night Team Leader.
You will be based in our High Support Hostels in central Bristol.
There is a requirement to work according to a fixed rota pattern, using annualised hours.
