About the role:

We are recruiting for a Church & Tenant Empowerment worker for 36 hours a week in our Nottingham team. As an Empowerment Worker, your role will be focussed on empowering churches and tenants.

You will be working with our partner churches to equip them in their role in mentoring, befriending and giving practical support to tenants. Each of our homes has a partner church and ensuring the relationship between the tenant and church works well is key to this role.  

You will also be directly supporting our tenants who have experienced homelessness. Tenants may be single men or families with support needs, and it will be your role, to empower them towards a fulfilled life enabling them to move on to independent living.

About you:

You will be someone with a passion for the homeless and our values, who is able to work with church leaders and church members alike. You will be enthusiastic about getting church members involved with our tenants and be able to provide good guidance and support to volunteers.

You will also need to be able to work with tenants with a wide range of support needs, including poor mental health, past offending, drug and alcohol dependency issues, and housing support needs. 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.

Please contact Cathy Gretton at [email protected] or 07908202808 for an informal discussion about this role.

About us:

We provide not just shelter and housing but also the friendship and community of a church. Together with over 74 churches, Hope into Action UK 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 encourage others to use our model by franchising the idea. Our vision is for every church to lovingly provide the homeless with a home. The tragedy of homelessness is in every community. We believe that with our help, every church can do something about it.

Hope into Action Nottingham partner with 7 churches in Nottingham and surrounding areas. We have 10 homes for vulnerable men, women and families.
