You will have a sound knowledge and current understanding of safeguarding issues and thorough understanding of the needs of homeless individuals and rough sleepers. Overall, you are a self - motivated, hard working with excellent communication skills.

The successful candidate will be required to work flexibly via a combination of early (ideally 5am - 1:30pm), late (ideally 10pm - 4am) and night shifts. You will be responsible for organising your own shift schedule (due to the nature of the shift pattern, the client is flexible)
