Are you passionate and enthusiastic about supporting young people to bring about change in their lives?  Are you driven to deliver excellent services?  We are looking for a Project Team Leader at the Oasis Aquila Foyer which provides supported accommodation for young people experiencing homelessness between the ages of 16-25.

As an accredited Foyer, the project prioritises supporting young people as they transition, through the development of Life and Employability Skills, as well as successfully move on into increased independence.

You will need experience of working in supported housing projects with young people and/or extensive experience of supporting vulnerable and/or challenging young people.  You will demonstrate a holistic approach in relating to young people and an understanding of the pressures facing young people, particularly around homelessness.  The ability to engage, relate and motivate young people and use your initiative and work flexibly in a demanding environment is essential.  In return you will benefit from a supportive, creative environment and have opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills.

In return you will benefit from a supportive, creative environment and have opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills. We are passionate about our staff and believe in caring for them in the same ways we care about our service users. We are a growing charity and don’t have the resource to provide fancy staff perks: however we are really good at the things money can’t buy. We believe staff are the foundation stone to the success of the charity and so we do everything we can to make sure they feel valued, supported, engaged and developed. We welcome applicants from all faiths or none, but it is important that all employees understand and sympathise with the Christian ethos of Oasis Aquila Housing.
