Are you looking to work flexibly, in a varied role where you can make a real difference helping homeless people to rebuild their lives? St Mungo’s is at the forefront of supporting individuals experiencing, or who have experienced, homelessness. Our work is more crucial now than ever before as we support our clients throughout the covid-19 pandemic and ensure that no one who has been housed during this time returns to homelessness. About the Role We are looking for people to join the Bristol locum bank where you will play a key role in supporting the delivery of our services across the city. Our belief is that rough sleeping is an intrinsically harmful and dangerous activity both for the individual and for the wider community. Our aim is to support people to recover from the effects of rough sleeping and move away from a street lifestyle permanently. As a Locum Worker you can work flexibly, on an ad hoc or temporary basis. You will be able to link yourself to services where you would like to pick up shifts and take on the number of shifts that fit your individual circumstances. In order to provide you with ongoing support you will be allocated a supervising manager and you will have access to mandatory training to ensure you have the tools to keep our clients safe. We offer enhanced pay for bank holidays and you can also accrue holiday pay. We are looking for people with different skills and levels of experience to work in and around Bristol in Locum Project Worker roles where you will work early and late shifts; and be involved in supporting people living in our mental health services with their recovery. There may also be opportunities to work with the Street Outreach Service assessing the needs of individual rough sleepers on the streets. What we’re looking for These important roles will suit people with:

  • Experience of helping vulnerable people to identify personal goals and supporting them through a process of change.

  • An understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerable people and the difficulties they experience in accessing services.

  • Excellent communication skills and the ability to build positive relationships with a wide range of people and deal with those who may be in a difficult personal or emotional situation.

  • It is a requirement for this post that an enhanced DBS disclosure check will be undertaken for the successful candidate

Above all we are looking for inspirational, committed individuals who have a genuine desire to support people to rebuild their lives.
