Join our team.

We recognise the skills and abilities of all people regardless of sex, race, nationality, marital status, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability, pregnancy, age and ethnic origin. We are committed to ensuring that all applications for positions are treated fairly and equitably.

We will not discriminate unfairly against applicants because of convictions, cautions, reprimands or outstanding criminal proceedings. We will only ask an individual to provide details of convictions and cautions that we are legally entitled to know about. We will not refuse someone a job because they’ve got a conviction or caution, unless a DBS check and risk assessment shows that they are unsuitable for the role they are being considered for.

We have the following vacancies:

Due to additional funding, we are currently recruiting for the following new roles:

Drug and Alcohol Recovery Outreach Officer

Based in Ipswich, Suffolk

Full time

Starting salary: £20,104

Plus 6% non-contributory pension contribution

Do you think you have the resilience to promote and encourage street drinkers to engage in treatment and recovery?

This role will provide intensive support to a small number of individuals in order to promote the benefits of recovery and encourage re-integration into society. You will be resilient, persistent and display a flexible approach, full of initiative and ideas to motivate a group of service users who may have become disillusioned with traditional services.

You do not need to have had experience in a similar post but must be able to demonstrate an understanding of working with this client group.

Support and opportunities for personal development will be provided.

This role requires flexibility and may include some out of hours working.

Access to your own transport is essential as this position will involve travel within the Suffolk area.

Closing date: Monday 20th August 2018

In some instances we do reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the closing date, therefore early applications are encouraged.

Overnight Housing Officer

Based in Ipswich, Suffolk

Full time (shift work, 7pm – 9am)

Starting salary: £20,104

Plus 6% non-contributory pension contribution

Do you think you have what it takes to make positive change?

You would be working with service users within one of our properties in our Accommodation Based Support Services to make positive change and support them to gain life skills and meet their goal to move on to independent living.

The majority of these Service Users come from the street homeless community and have histories of being accommodated and then losing their accommodation. The purpose of this role is to support them to break this cycle. We aim to achieve this by providing them with support 24/7 so this role is pivotal in this success.

As this is an overnight service, you will need to demonstrate an ability to problem solve and use your own initiative to find solutions.

Support and opportunities for personal development will be provided.

Closing date: Monday 20th August 2018

In some instances we do reserve the right to close a vacancy earlier than the closing date, therefore early applications are encouraged.

 

To apply for any of these vacancies, please complete the attached Application Form and Equality and Diversity Form and send to Jane Simpson, Director of Business Support either via email at [email protected] or via post to Anglia Care Trust, Unit 8 The Square, Martlesham Heath, Ipswich, IP5 3SL

In return we offer free, regular training, forums, events and support. All volunteers must undergo certain training before they can work in the field and they shadow more experienced volunteers for a period too.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and tell us that they gain the following:

  • Retired people: get to use their experience, keep up to date, meet new people and learn new skills
  • Jobseekers and those between jobs: learn new skills, gain experience valuable for their CV, meet new people and choose their own hours
  • Mums/dads with children at school/college/university: learn new skills, meet new people, keep up to date, give something back
  • Students: Gain valuable experience to accompany their studies, learn new skills, meet new people
  • Full-time employed people: choose their own hours around their job, meet new people, learn new skills

Donations

As a registered charity, Anglia Care Trust is totally reliant on funding to continue the work that we do. In the present economic climate, the demand for our services is ever increasing and we believe this trend will continue for the next few years at least.

As a local charity, helping local communities, we rely not only on local authorities to continue our funding, but on national grant and trust awarding bodies to help us raise funds. We also look to the local community to help support the work we do.

There are many ways you can help to support us financially as well. You can make a one off donation or set up a regular payment to us. Remember, no gift is too small.

You can leave us a gift in your will – helping us to reduce crime and anti social behaviour and support the vulnerable in the future. If you don’t already have a will, it is a good idea to consult a solicitor who can help you ensure that your wishes are carried out after your death. Remembering a charity in your will is also an efficient way of giving. Because charities are exempt from Inheritance Tax, all of your gift to Anglia Care Trust will go towards supporting our work.
