Job Description

We are looking for a fantastic Support Worker to join our team and provide trauma-informed support for women in the next stage of their journey. 

The Marylebone Project is one of the UK’s largest providers of services for women experiencing homelessness. Those we support are often affected by substance misuse, unemployment, domestic violence and mental health issues. Whatever their story, we aim for the same ending; self-esteem, employment and independent living. We do this by providing shelter, education opportunities, spiritual space and events in a welcoming and secure environment.

You will be someone who is passionate and experienced in shaping and delivering great support for vulnerable people, and work in a dynamic, positive and creative way to achieve the best outcomes for those you serve.  Ideally, you will have experience of working within a Psychologically Informed Environment and would have had experience supporting those with complex needs.

We are looking to recruit two full-time Support Workers in this role. 

40 hours per week. Normal working pattern will be working across early and late shifts, working one weekend as directed by the Project rota on a five week rolling basis. Other times and shifts may be required as per the Project needs.

*Positions are exempt under the Equality Act 2010, Schedule 9, Part 1.

Physical requirement: The job regularly involves walking throughout the Project, which is based over 2 sites 100m apart, over a number of floors with stair access. There is also a requirement to travel across London for meetings and service user support. Physical mobility and ability to carry smaller items are required as essential.

An enhanced DBS check required and compliance with Church Army’s safeguarding policies. Safeguarding training will be required.
