We are excited to be recruiting into our Woodleaze team, in Yate, just outside of Bristol.
Woodleaze prides itself in being the only high support accommodation-based service for young people in South Gloucestershire and pioneers the way for supporting young people in the county.
This highly rewarding job can be ideal for someone who wants to make a positive impact in their community; someone wanting to start their career in supported housing or using their skills and experience in a part time role.
We currently have 2 Weekend Housing Worker roles available at 0.45 FTE each. Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, 23 October 2023.
We are striving to better represent the young people we support and therefore are particularly keen to increase applications from minoritised groups 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.
