Turning Tides mission is to end local homelessness in Worthing, Adur, Littlehampton, Horsham and Mid Sussex. The charity has grown significantly over the last five years to be able to achieve this. In 2018 we acquired accommodation in East Grinstead, opened a 34 bed assessment centre in Worthing and set up an assertive outreach service to rough sleepers across Mid Sussex. We have over 100 staff and 300 volunteers.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain some experience of the organisation delivering a breadth of homelessness services to a variety of clients. Relief Work can often provide experience to develop into further roles and opportunities with Turning Tides or within the sector, with 3 days paid training and access to Turning Tides training programme as part of the role.

The successful applicant will have experience of working with vulnerable people in a paid or unpaid capacity, an understanding of the benefits systems, safeguarding issues and a knowledge of drug and alcohol misuse is desired. You will have excellent interpersonal, communication, and organisational skills and the ability to build cooperative working relationships. With strong emotional resilience you will be passionate about working with our client group.

The majority of services are based within Worthing but we also require cover to our services in Littlehampton, Horsham and Mid Sussex.
