We are Recruiting!

Resident Support Trainer (part-time)

We are recruiting for a Resident Support Trainer to support the work of Action Foundation (based in Newcastle) and Open Door North East (based in Middlesbrough).

(This role will involve working across both locations)

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced individual to join our teams that provide supported accommodation to refugees and asylum seekers with no recourse to public funds.

We have a vacancy for a Resident Support Trainer to work with staff teams at Action Foundation and Open Door North East. The successful candidate will develop and implement a range of training programmes supporting clients to overcome practical, cultural and other barriers enabling them to successfully manage their tenancy, increase their independence and move-on from our service to longer-term accommodation.

The role includes developing, delivering and managing a training programme to meet the needs of the clients; recruiting volunteers and other professionals to support with training delivery; liaising with Support Workers to best understand the barriers our clients face as well as working with senior colleagues to develop, monitor and evaluate the project.

If you are an excellent team player, equally able to work alone, with experience of providing support to vulnerable people and have an appetite for making a big difference to the lives of our clients we would love to hear from you!
