Are you passionate about playing a part in helping people to achieve their goals and reach their potential? Are you creative, dynamic and can think outside the box? Then you may just be the person that we have been searching for!

 Due to some exciting new developments, YWCA Yorkshire is looking for a very special individual who can contribute towards the outstanding service delivery at our Sheffield Service (Peile House), and charity shop. Peile House is our hostel in Sheffield that provides support 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and is home to 14 residents. The right candidate will have the skills to provide professional support to clients within a dedicated team but will also have the enthusiasm and creativity to support our commercial enterprises and fundraising initiatives.

 

The person that we are looking for will be resilient, highly practical and able to form positive relationships with staff, volunteers and clients. You will have a “can do” attitude and thrive in a high challenge environment. You will be persistent and committed to ensuring that clients and volunteers are supported, and able to meet their potential.

 In return, we offer a competitive remuneration package within an organisation that has a strong commitment to staff training and personal development and a proven track record in, and commitment to, employee wellbeing. You will be valued for the work that you do, involved in the decisions that we make as an organisation and form part of a dedicated team of people who will support and encourage you to achieve your own goals and aspirations.
