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, 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 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, be able to accurately record interventions, and IT literate (in particular a proficient user of Microsoft Word and Outlook).
One25 is a Bristol charity for women moving from crisis and trauma towards independence in the community.
