About the role 

We are looking for someone to join the Peterborough team for 32 hours a week as an Empowerment Worker. Full time hours will be considered.  

Initially we envisage this role to be both church focused and tenant focused. You will be involved in training volunteers and helping them prepare for opening houses and helping to support ongoing houses. You will be working with our partner churches – each house is partnered with a local church – to train, equip, encourage for their role in mentoring, befriending and giving practical support to tenants. 

As an Empowerment Worker you will also be supporting our tenants who have been homeless. Tenants may be single or a family, but all will have support needs and you would empower them towards a fulfilled life. You will be responsible for ensuring that all tenants have up to date personal development plans, risk assessments and ongoing support.  

About you 

For this role, you would be someone with a passion for the homeless and our values, who is able to work with church leaders and church members. You will need to be able to work with tenants with support needs, including poor mental health, past offending, and drug and alcohol dependency issues. We value good listening skills. The ability to work in a flexible team and learn new skills is important as we foster working within a strong supportive team. 

We love diversity and we value your unique skills, strengths, knowledge and experience. Becoming one of our team may realise your potential, helping us to raise our performance in empowering those we serve. 

About us  

We provide not just shelter and housing know-how, but also the friendship of a church. Together with over 100 churches across the UK, we provide direct support to people whom others have often given up on. Our first home had a real heart for men coming out of prison, but homes are now available for a wide range of people experiencing homelessness: people in recovery from addiction, people sleeping rough, women and children fleeing domestic violence, people coming out of rehab, former prostitutes, refugees, those suffering mental health issues and survivors of human trafficking.  

We also encourage others to use our model through franchising. Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide a home for those who’ve suffered homelessness. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. We believe that with our help, every church can do something about it.
