Are you looking for an exciting and varied role where no two days are the same? Are you passionate about supporting people, to live as independently as possible and to lead fulfilling lives?

If this sounds like you then we may have your perfect opportunity!

 

If you need flexibility in the days you work, then our bank roles (sometimes referred to as “relief roles” in other companies) mean that you will be able to choose from available shifts and have the benefits of a consistent workplace combined with opportunity to build positive relationships with the individuals we support. However you aren’t guaranteed shifts every week as hours are worked as and when required.

We are seeking an experienced Project Worker, who is resilient, empathetic and empowering, to join our team at Aviary House, where we provide support for adults aged 18 to 64 experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.

 

We value our team and encourage learning and progression through our comprehensive induction programme, as well as on-going training to develop new and existing skills and encourage progression. Sanctuary has their own Learning and Development Academy, who provide a wide range of training courses, open to all.

Sanctuary also offers a great employee rewards scheme, where you will be able to receive a variety of discounts from major retailers.
