Support Worker, Byker Bridge House

  • Salary £20,130 - £21,670
  • Location Byker Bridge House, Newcastle
  • Status 37.5 hours per week (3x 12.5 hours shifts)
  • Deadline 26 January 2022

Byker Bridge House has provided housing to some of Newcastle’s most vulnerable people since 1995.

Working with Newcastle City Council, we house people experiencing a housing crisis who have nowhere else to go and work hard to ensure that everyone has a chance to “get to a better place”.

As a Support Worker you’ll work closely with residents to ensure they get the help they need to get on with their lives, get out of crisis accommodation, and move on to something more permanent.

You will work closely with the residents to give them the skills they need to live more independently, from basic budgeting, shopping, and cooking, to helping them navigate the benefits system and prepare to hold down a tenancy of their own.

Some experience of working with vulnerable people may be useful but what’s really important is having empathy, communicating well, and listening. It’s a challenging job but an incredibly rewarding one.
