“I would not be where I am without this help”

 

Are you ready to make a real difference; treating people who are experiencing significant challenges in their lives with compassion and understanding, helping them to use their own unique talents and strengths to develop a life of their choice?

Are you looking for flexible hours, a real living wage and the opportunity to gain new skills and experience?

If this has sparked your interest then we would love to hear from you.

We are an organisation that values the unique qualities we all have, whatever our background and circumstances, and the opportunity to bring our authentic selves to work. We are an anti-discriminatory organisation and we work hard to challenge oppression in whatever forms it takes. 

If you feel a sense of activism, enjoy a challenging and rewarding role, and recognise yourself in Julian Support’s values, then we would like find out more about what makes you tick.

We are looking for enthusiastic and creative people who enjoy making a difference to come and join our supported housing teams in West Ipswich, and in West Suffolk (Bury St Edmunds).

What does it involve?

You will be working alongside people living in our supported housing services, proactively helping them to gain the confidence, skills and motivation they need to move on into the community. You will recognise that even in the most difficult of situations, people are often relying on a range of strengths and skills to cope and survive. You will use your ability to connect with people and develop their trust to help them to overcome barriers and achieve their goals.

What experience do I need?

Most importantly we are looking for people with a positive, person-centred approach to helping others and a desire to make a real difference. You will value individuality and take a non-judgemental and anti-authoritarian approach to providing support.
