    You will be required to take on a caseload of customers, with responsibility for key working, co-ordinating support packages and proactively ensuring all required tasks and activities are completed.

    Diversity, equity and inclusion runs through every aspect of our work, from the way we support customers to how we develop and champion our colleagues. Our people are at the heart of what we do, and inclusion is key to making everyone feel at home. For over 160 years we have provided somewhere for people impacted by homelessness to stay and thrive. To achieve this we strive to make sure that our colleagues represent the diversity of our customers and that our workplace creates a sense of belonging for everyone. We hope that you will join us in our vision. We welcome applications from all backgrounds and abilities.
