Grove Park, Bury St Edmunds

Hours as and when required

 

 

Do you need flexibility in the days you work? Our bank roles (sometimes referred to as “relief roles” in other companies) mean that you will be able to choose from available shifts and have the benefits of a consistent workplace combined with opportunity to build positive relationships with the individuals we support. However you aren’t guaranteed shifts every week as hours are worked as and when required.

 

We are looking for a Bank Night Worker to join our team at Grove Park.  You will be our first point of call during the night for our residents, ensuring security is maintained and will develop good relationships with our residents, in order to help them develop life skills.

 

Though we refer to the position as Bank Night Worker, it is also known as Bank Night Concierge.

 

At Sanctuary Supported Living, we are passionate about supporting people to live as independently as possible and to lead fulfilling lives. At Grove Park, which is part of Bury St Edmunds Homeless Supported Housing, we provide support to people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness.

 

The aim of our services is to ensure our clients achieve their own goals and aspirations through the support and encouragement of our staff and focusing on delivering excellent quality.

 

We value our team and encourage learning and progression through our comprehensive induction programme, as well as on-going training to develop new and existing skills and encourage progression.

 

Sanctuary also offers a great employee rewards scheme, where you will be able to receive a variety of discounts from major retailers.
