People are at the heart of who we are and what we do. Day-by-day, person-to-person, we tailor what we offer to what people need. We’re here to provide consistent, friendly and informed support so that people can explore options and take ‘the next step’ towards a positive future. We welcome people with a wide range of skills and experiences to our team – including those who have lived through homelessness. To make a difference we need to work flexibly, with everyday-leadership, humour and a ‘can do’ spirit. We want to make it easy, make it right, and make it happen – not only for the people we support, but also for each other. Our #OneTeam ethos is core to who we are, and it means caring for and supporting each other regardless of our role, service or location. This is how we roll. We want people who share these values to join us and become a part of the Simon Community Scotland family.

The Holyrood Support Hub offers a range of services for people who are rough sleeping and facing other forms of homelessness. Crucial to its operation are our Support Workers and the trusting relationships they build through providing trauma informed care so that we can help people resolve their homelessness and find a better future.

Job Summary

Support Workers in the Holyrood Hub work together with the people we support to find solutions that help to resolve their homelessness. Support plans are person-centred so that the support people receive is based on their needs and wishes. Support Workers create an environment that is friendly and safe, based on the psychologically informed environment and trauma informed care principles

As a multi-agency hub we host a range of agencies who bring their services to people at the Holyrood Hub therefore working effectively in a multi-disciplinary team is central to the Support Worker role.

A significant number of people who use our services are not originally from the UK and they have varying levels of English language abilities. We want the diversity of the population to be reflected in our staff team and welcome applications from nationals of other countries who are fluent in English as their second language. We especially need people who can communicate in Polish, Italian and Romanian.
