Are you looking for a role where every day is different, and you work in a team to make a real difference to vulnerable people in our community?

If so, this may be the perfect role for you!

About the service

Our Foundations Service is well-established in Edinburgh with over 15 years of experience supporting people to overcome a range of barriers to employment. This work is delivered on an outreach basis, visiting clients in their homes or in the community.

About the role

Working in a small team, you will provide relationship-based support to clients many of whom have recently been released from prison or living with historical trauma. The aim is to help remove the barriers that prevent them from moving towards employment including supporting them to get debt advice; housing and benefit advice; access health and wellbeing support; and working with employers and training providers.

About you

We are looking for someone with experience of working one-to-one with people in a supportive context. You should be passionate about helping people into a better situation and also:

  • Have an understanding of mental health and of the challenges faced by those living in areas of deprivation,
  • Be able to build excellent working relationships with clients to help them to achieve their goals, and
  • Be well organised, able to work on your own initiative and be positive, creative and flexible in providing support.

How we’ll support you

You will be working independently as part of a team with a supportive manager. We will encourage you use your creativity to help your clients to progress. You will have access to wider Cyrenians support, including our learning and development programme, and staff wellbeing services.

About us

At Cyrenians we tackle the causes and consequences of homelessness by taking a Public Health Approach to Homelessness Prevention. We take a values-led and relationships-based approach to delivering all our services.
