Residential Development Worker

Job Description

The overall purpose of the job is to provide support to Companions, who require help both emotionally and practically, so they can live and work in the Community, develop life skills and realise their full potential to move on when ready.

You should have good communication skills, the ability to handle stressful situations, experience of training and supporting people with complex needs and have a positive "can do" attitude.  This is a residential role that entails some on call duties and requires the post holder to live on site in a lovely flat set in a former convent with beautiful grounds in the countryside.

Emmaus is a homeless charity with a difference.  People are not just given a bed for the night, but offered a home, meaningful work and a sense of belonging. 

We would urge you to research the Emmaus model of support to gain greater understanding of the unique service we provide.
