Closing Date30 November 2021
We are looking to increase our bank of sessional staff and are seeking sessional wellbeing workers to provide annual leave, training and sickness cover within the following 3 services:
Wellbeing: Housing First for Young People - This service currently supports 53 young people aged 16 - 25 in a residential and outreach setting. The service supports young people who have experienced homelessness or are leaving care.
Wellbeing: for good mental health - The service provides a person centred housing support service to service users who are experiencing mental health related issues.
Wellbeing: for people age 60+ - This service provides support to older people looking to maintain their tenancy and their links with the local community. You will provide support within our seven sheltered housing complexes.
There are a diverse range of shifts available, including night shift.
The role of sessional workers is to provide cover for holiday and sickness absence of permanent staff, therefore the Association cannot guarantee, or is under any obligation, to offer set / regular hours or a set / regular work pattern. You are also under no obligation to accept shift offered.
This is an open ad with no set closing date. We will aim to interview applicants every quarter and will keep candidates up to date with the progress of their application.
