About the job
YMCA Horsham provides safe and secure accommodation and opportunities for young people who have been made, or are at risk of becoming, homeless. We offer a holistic support package and actively encourage residents into education, training, employment or voluntary work. Whilst living with us residents gain many essential life skills and social skills, empowering them to move successfully into semi-independent or fully independent accommodation by completing our More Than a Room Programme. Across the Horsham Area we provide one 50 bed 24 hour staffed supported housing project for 16-25 year olds and a number of shared properties providing transitional housing with visiting support.

An excellent planner and organiser, you will be able to manage lots of tasks at the same time and keep appropriate records. Furthermore, you will be able to build strong relationships with other members of your team and will make sure that handovers are robust and clear.
As an organisation, we are committed to the continued professional development of all colleagues, providing an extensive programme of formal learning opportunities and supported by an organisational wide culture of learning.
