Work With Us

Support Worker

Salary Scale: £17,186 to £19,601

Simon Community Scotland is the largest provider of homelessness services in Scotland, with a reputation for excellence. Everything we do is about and for people: the people we support, our staff, our partners and everyone affected by homelessness.

Our Streetwork service in Edinburgh supports people with exceptional needs and we need exceptional people to help us. At Streetwork we are wholly focused on supporting people to be safe, to get off the streets and into accommodation where we continue to provide support to help them stay safe.  Our values matter to us and we are looking for people who share those, who are committed to making a positive difference, and who are skilled in relating to people and working in a person-centred way to support resolution and recovery from homelessness.
We currently have a number of opportunities for Support Workers to join our team. Please see the Job Description.  Our work takes place 7 days a week at times that meet the needs of the people we support. Support Workers also contribute to covering our Helpline overnight on a rota basis.
If you are interested in applying, please send your CV to no later than 11th March 2019.  If you are shortlisted you will be asked to complete our Application Form before interview.  We plan to hold interviews on 15th March and during week beginning 18th.

“The support has opened my world up to new things. Joining a credit union is an example and I have found out that I can save and get low interest loans. It brings a structure I didn't have before.”
