Support Worker??? – Haringey & Westminster

Support Worker???
Location: Haringey and Westminster

Flexible working hours welcomed
37 hours per week- £26,000 pa plus London weighting.

This is no ordinary support worker role, instead, as a Person-led, Transitional and Strength-based (PTS) Network Coach, you will:

  • Walk alongside people experiencing tough times, listening, identifying system barriers and working to overcome them.
  • Unleash your inner activist and contribute to challenging and changing systems around homelessness, substance use, social care, mental health and criminal justice.
  • Share your grassroots experience influencing others across the UK.

About Mayday

Mayday is an organisation with a network of passionate social activists working to bring about systemic change, whilst offering people going through tough times such as homelessness, leaving care, coming out of prison or experiencing emotional trauma, person-led and strength-based support through its PTS Response.

The Role*

Mayday is looking for someone who believes in people; a person who is comfortable walking alongside someone to identify and overcome barriers, to connect people with a positive community network and friendships, build on their strengths and achieve the future they want.

This is an opportunity for someone who understands that in the world today, the problem is not people with ‘complex needs’ but a broken system. A system that is failing to treat people as people. A system that traps and institutionalises people.

This role is not for the faint hearted, it is for someone with a passion for social justice, and the energy and determination to make systems work for people going through tough times.

Mayday is excited to be recruiting this role to be part of a team working with people who are experiencing tough times across Haringey and Westminster.

We believe that a thriving organisation is one who builds a diverse team, representative of the community it serves.  Therefore we welcome applicants from all walks of life, and would particularly encourage those from underrepresented groups to consider the opportunity.

How to Apply

Please complete the application form (link below) and submit the completed version to: recruitment@maydaytrust.org.uk. Applications close: 5.00pm Thursday 7th April. An online interactive group session will take place on the morning of Tuesday 19th April 10.30 – 1.00 followed by online formal individual interviews on either the afternoon of Wednesday 20th April or the morning of Thursday 21st April.
