Mobile Night Support Worker
Based in Horsham (working across Crawley and Mid-Sussex)
Permanent contract
37.5 hours per week
4 on 4 off rota
£21,975 per annum

We are recruiting to our Night Support Team to work within our supported housing in Horsham, Crawley, and Burgess Hill. You will work within our properties that provide accommodation and associated support services to those aged 16-35 years. 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.

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. You will provide mobile support to our dispersed and staffed properties as well as providing occasional static cover.

A full, valid driving licence is essential, but a vehicle will be provide where required.

YMCA DLG requires all staff and volunteers to be committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and to respond proactively to safeguarding concerns.

Successful applicants are required to undertake an Enhanced Disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS)
