We are looking for a support worker to help us run One25’s drop-in service. If you are a confident, pro-active team worker with great interpersonal skills that will enable you to establish and maintain good working relationships with our service users, staff and drop-In volunteers, and you are passionate about supporting some of Bristol’s most vulnerable women to make positive changes in their lives, this could be you.
One25’s drop-in is open four afternoons a week and provides a safe women-only space for our service users to get practical and emotional support. Women can gain expert advice and enjoy a hot lunch, learn a skill, do laundry, and use the shower facilities or just have a chat. The drop-in service is managed by the drop-in manager, supported by the two drop-in support workers and a number of volunteers.
The drop-in support worker will take responsibility for the practical arrangements necessary to run the drop-In service. As well as great interpersonal skills, the successful candidate will have high levels of resilience and self-care, be well organised, flexible, able to think on her feet and IT literate (in particular a proficient user of Microsoft Word and Outlook).
One25 is a Bristol based registered charity (no.1062391) with a Christian ethos providing services for women trapped in street sex-work and those who are building positive new lives away from the streets.
We particularly encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are underrepresented in our workforce.
It is an Occupational Requirement that applications for this post are open to women only, as permitted under Schedule 9, Part 1, of the Equality Act 2010. Enhanced DBS disclosure will be required.
Hours: 30 hours over 4 days per week (Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays with the potential of spreading the 30 hours over 5 days) and may include occasional evening commitments.
Salary: £19,024 pa (FTE £23780)
