£21,975 per year (pro rata)

We are recruiting to our Night Support Team to work in our supported housing project in Burgess Hill.
You will work within our property that provides accommodation and associated support services to Older Looked After Children (16 -18-year old’s). An understanding of the support needs of the young people we work with is desirable.
In particular you will help to keep our properties safe and secure throughout the night.
While there are systems in place to support you, a substantial part of the role includes lone working and will require someone competent and confident when working alone, and somebody who is able to deal with unacceptable behaviour appropriately.
This is challenging yet rewarding work that helps the young people we support to belong, contribute, and thrive https://www.ymcadlg.org/our-impact/ymca-stories/
The position comes with excellent benefits, including 27 days annual leave per annum (plus bank holidays), a company sick pay scheme, a life assurance policy of 2x your annual salary, an interest free bike loan, and excellent training and development opportunities.
The shifts are waking nights, from 8pm to 7am. The rota is 2 nights on, 6 off.
