This is a new post.

Providing a home for up to 20 people affected by homelessness, the Village was founded by Social Bite who partnered with Cyrenians to provide the on-site housing support. Cyrenians pioneered community living almost 50 years ago and our model and values-led ethos is still relevant today.

The purpose of the village is to offer a person-centred approach that supports Community members to live, learn and develop together.

This is a new role and requires a highly motivated and dynamic individual who has experience of supporting people who have been directly affected by the tough realities of homelessness. You will be passionate about enabling potential and supporting residents to identify key goals on a journey towards positive change and independent living.

We are looking for an extremely personable individual who has the ability to create a positive environment which encompasses a range of engagement opportunities. You’ll remain calm in a crisis and positively influence others. You’ll also be highly organised with the ability to manage a busy workload and varied responsibilities, and be able to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
