Cyrenians Outreach Services have a remit to work with people who experience severe and multiple disadvantage, and do so using a relationship based approach.

Cyrenians is a charity working towards a society that truly values and includes all. Our Vision is of an inclusive society in which we all have the opportunities to live valued and fulfilled lives. We work to make that vision a reality through our mission to support people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey. Website:

The Edinburgh Housing First programme is part of a national pathfinder spanning 5 cities across Scotland which aims to support people with long histories of homelessness to access a permanent home and to receive the support they need to remain there.

We are looking for a skilled and committed key worker to join our support team. Caseloads are intentionally small and the emphasis is on forming relationships with those who access the service, supporting them unconditionally, and coordinating other specialist support where required.

The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, be patient and tolerant, creative, reflective, flexible and willing to try new ways of working. You should also have the ability to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
