Location: London The Marylebone Project

Closing date: 4th June 2024

At Marylebone we pride ourselves on delivering the highest possible standard of support to our women regardless of their background and vulnerability. In joining the team, you will need to share in our values.

As a Support Worker at the Marylebone Project, you will work with a range of women with varying support needs and backgrounds. You will empower and support them to reach their goals, giving them the necessary tools to achieve these. You will work with other agencies, linking women in with various services that will support them in a holistic way.

You would also be expected to carry out daily duties such as:
• Floor checks/ health and safety checks.
• Information recording, updating, and filing.
• Supporting clients with maintaining their tenancy.
• Attending meetings with or on behalf of the clients.
• Advocacy, signposting and supporting clients to appointments.

It is a privilege to work with these women, and you will always put the safety of the women first, keeping them at the heart of your work. You should be an excellent communicator and understand the importance of recording and sharing key information. You will undergo training throughout your time in post and this will support you to do your job effectively. You may not have experience in this area but a willingness to learn is key. You will be patient, empathetic and eager to learn and develop while facing new challenges head on. You will also understand the complexities and challenges of homelessness and how these may affect women differently.
