YMCA Bournemouth has 108 hostel and move on spaces in Bournemouth and Poole.
We currently have vacancies for two Accommodation and Support Workers. A relevant qualification would be desirable, as would previous experience working in a supported housing setting or with homelessness. Experience with clients with mental health or drug and alcohol issues would also be an advantage, although a passion for working with vulnerable people is more important.
As well as holding a portfolio of key work clients, the postholders will be expected to work as part of a team of Support Workers running a busy hostel and move on service. Each postholder will also take lead responsibility for a specialist area of expertise, one of which will be Floating Support and management of our small HMO in Poole. Support and training for this will be offered. This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidates to join a fantastic team, to work in an organisation that really values its staff and to carry out a worthwhile and satisfying role.
These vacancies are for 40 hours per week by shifts Monday to Sunday. There will be the need to work unsociable hours whilst working on a rota, including occasional on-call hours.
Salary: YMCA Bournemouth New Grade 2 £17,680 – £24,000 per annum, dependent on experience and qualifications.
