This is an exciting time to join the organisation as we continue to grow and expand to meet the ever-increasing housing needs in Gloucestershire.  Since 2014 we have grown from having one supported housing project of 50 beds to being able to offer more than 250 beds every night, including long-term affordable accommodation, low to high level supported accommodation, emergency homeless provision, a winter refuge for those rough sleeping and budget tourist accommodation.

YMCA Cheltenham is a Christian Charity that seeks to meet the needs of young people and the wider community.

As Night Concierge, you will be responsible for the safety and security of all residents and the building during the hours of 10.00 pm and 8.00 am, providing suitable support when necessary, and ensuring that residents abide by the agreed terms and conditions of occupation.

The job will involve lone-working; carrying out security checks; some light cleaning and maintenance duties; you will supervise and train agency staff; keep records of any incidents using YMCA’s bespoke software.  You will be aware of health and safety in relation to a housing project.

In addition, you will offer call-out provision for another YMCA project within Gloucester City Centre.

The successful candidate will be friendly and approachable, able to maintain professional boundaries at all times, with experience of working in a similar role.  You will have an understanding of the issues faced by homeless people and how to appropriately address these.

If you believe that you have the skills and experience needed to join our team, working closely with the Local Authority to provide high quality, caring and cost effective accommodation for homeless individuals and families in the Gloucester area – we want to hear from you!
