Please find full details of how to apply via our Website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is 23:59, 01 October 2021.
We have an opportunity for a new colleague to join our Intensive Support team in a focused role supporting young people who are seeking asylum and refugees and other care leavers. You will work intensively with a small caseload, building relationships and empowering young people to establish themselves and transition successfully to adulthood. Whilst following government guidance on social distancing measures due to COVID-19, we continue to deliver essential support to young people, carrying out face to face visits where necessary and also using technology to ensure we stay remotely connected with those who need our support.
We are particularly keen to increase applications from people from ethnic minorities and male candidates as they are currently under-represented in our organisation.
We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the South West, working with over 2,500 young people. We have strong local partnerships and adhere to the best practice in the sector. We build trusting relationships between our young people and our colleagues and this is at the core of our work.
What we are looking for:
What you will be doing:
You will be in the Transitions and Resilience team and your line manager will be our Intensive Support Service Team Leader.
What we are offering:
Covering Letter / Supporting Statement Guidance
Please note that the online application form cannot be saved until it is fully complete. We recommend that you prepare your Covering Letter before you start the online application.
Your Covering Letter is essentially your Supporting Statement and will form the most important basis on which your skills, experience and behavioural competencies will be tested against the job criteria. Without it, your application cannot progress to the shortlisting stage.
You should refer to the Person Specification document within the Job Pack and cover only the elements that are tested at this stage of the recruitment process. Elements that only have the word ‘interview’ next to them will be tested at the next stage of the process and do not need to be covered in your letter.
Please try to keep the word limit to 250 words per criterion.
ALTHOUGH THE APPLICATION FORM GIVES YOU THE OPTION TO UPLOAD A CV, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT A CV AS THIS IS NOT NECESSARY AND WILL NOT BE USED IN THIS PROCESS.

We safeguard and promote the safety and welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any job offer will depend on a satisfactory DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Barred List Disclosure Check.

We also pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer for everyone regardless of age, disability, gender identity, race, religion and beliefs, sex and sexual orientation. We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black and Minority Ethnic groups and Males as they are currently under-represented.
