Are you looking for an opportunity to start a career in the homeless sector? We are searching for motivated and committed people to join our structured 12 month traineeship scheme.
Thames Reach is a London based charity helping homeless and vulnerable people to find decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Our vision is to end street homelessness and our aim is to achieve the highest standards and effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people. Each member of the Thames Reach team plays a vital role in contributing and shaping the vision of ending rough sleeping and promoting improvement in people’s lives, and by joining us you can do the same.
On the Traineeship programme, you will experience a challenging yet rewarding high quality on-the-job training and the opportunity to develop the skills needed for a career in our front-line services. We also are looking to offer the same rewarding opportunities on our Apprenticeship scheme to come later in the year.
To succeed, you will need commitment, resilience, empathy towards homeless people and good basic admin and IT skills. Your programme will consist of two six-month placements at a Thames Reach Project one of which will be hostel based.
You will be required to work full time on a rota basis which involves working shifts, including evenings and weekends.
