Details of Role: 

We are excited to be recruiting into our Woodleaze team. Our Woodleaze service is the only high support accommodation-based service for young people in South Gloucestershire and pioneers the way for supporting young people in the county. 

If you have a desire to support young people and to develop support and housing management experience, we want to hear from you. We are passionate about what we do, and we work hard to make a positive change to young people’s lives. Join us and be a part of this amazing effort to end youth homelessness! 
This is a part time role available at 0.45 FTE. Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, Monday 23 October 2023.

We are striving to better represent the young people we support and therefore are particularly keen to increase applications from Black/Black British, Muslim and male candidates as they are currently under-represented in our organisation. We also encourage applications from people with relevant lived experience. 

If you need an adjustment to be made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible.

  • Supporting young people, your colleagues, and the team in promoting and facilitating a positive rent culture.

If you have transferrable skills and you are interested in this role, but you are worried about the application process, please get in touch with us. We encourage you to have an informal chat with the recruiting manager to discuss how your personal or professional experience and skills could be transferred to this role.

We comply fully with the DBS code of practice and undertake to treat all applications for positions fairly.
