Hours as and when required

We are seeking a Support Assistant to make a real difference to the lives of our residents. Oxford House and Pembroke Way are a mixed 9 bed and 4 bed move on house project for young homeless and young parents aged 16-25. If you want to make a positive impact to people’s lives, this is a rewarding opportunity to come and work within an established and experienced team.

The role of Support Assistant will include

  • Providing a high quality, person centred care and support service to enable and empower our clients
  • Ensuring that clients are supported by developing their daily living skills such as cooking, cleaning, shopping and being part of their community
  • Working with colleagues and partner agencies to achieve the best outcome for our clients

Skills and experiences

  • Ideally you will have experience of working with vulnerable people, however candidates with enthusiasm, a real passion for the role and a willingness to learn are encouraged to apply as we are committed to delivering a tailored training programme
  • Initiative and assertiveness will also be key to your success, as you will be required to source innovative solutions to problems that allow independence to be maximised.
  • Excellent interpersonal, organisational, listening and time management skills, allowing you to form positive relationships with people

Why work for us?

We support vulnerable people to live as independently as possible, by building their confidence and skills to realise their potential.

We are a national organisation but we think locally. We support people through supported housing, move-on accommodation, CQC registered services, floating support and telecare services. We specialise in services for young people, homeless families and individuals, people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, people with mental health needs and older people.

Ready to join us?

As part of our commitment to making Sanctuary a great place to work, we offer you access to a range of great employee benefits and the opportunity to develop and progress within your career. Benefits include:
