We are looking for a Companion Development Worker to join our team at Emmaus Coventry & Warwickshire. This exciting new role involves supporting previously homeless people to develop to their full potential.

Our charity supports formerly homeless people, by providing accommodation, support, training and the opportunity for meaningful work. Our community home is based in Binley, Coventry and we run a charity shop on Red Lane in the city centre, along with a warehouse nearby. The people we support are referred to as ‘companions’.

The Companion Development Worker will provide support to our companions, who need help both emotionally and practically, so they can live and work in our community, develop life skills and realise their full potential to move on when they are ready. The Companion Development Worker will work alongside companions within our shop and warehouse in Coventry, and therefore needs to show flexibility in all aspects of retail activities.

Line managed by our Support Manager,  the Companion Development Worker will also work collaboratively with our Retail Development Manager who has overall responsibility for retail operations.

You will be joining a small, enthusiastic staff who come to work to make a difference to others, so if you want job satisfaction and to be part of a great team this is the job for you.

If you have great communications skills, experience of training and supporting people with complex needs and a positive “can do” attitude, we would love to hear from you.
