Support Worker

  • Salary £23,400 - £24,872
  • Location Newcastle, Byker
  • Status Three 9 hour shifts and one 10.5 hour shift worked over 4 days with alternate weekends.
  • Deadline 29 April 2024

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 manage a caseload of around 8 residents, but additionally you will work with all of our residents to help them learn the skills needed to live more independently – cooking, cleaning, household budgeting and all the other knowledge that you need to successfully live with greater independence.

So that our help and support is there when our residents need it, these roles will be worked over four days in three 9 hour shifts and one 10.5 hour shift. You will work alternate weekends.

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.
