Are you interested in an exciting opportunity to coordinate and motivate a small team of Bethany Christian Trust staff at the Rapid Re-accommodation Welcome Centre?


The Rapid Re-accommodation Welcome Centre provides emergency accommodation with support to anyone who would otherwise be rough sleeping in Edinburgh. It will re-open in October 2024 and close in April 2025, and we are looking for Project Workers to cover a variety of shifts:

Day Shift Team Leader 7:45 am to 8:00 pm (up to 39.375 hours per week)

Night Shift Team Leader 7:45 pm to 8:00 am (up to 39.375 hours per week)

The Dayshift Team Leader role involves working 12-hour day shifts (seven on/seven off), overseeing volunteers and liaising with other agencies to identify suitable accommodations for each individual to move on to.

The Night Shift Team Leader role involves working continuous night shifts (seven nights on/seven nights off), overseeing volunteers and liaising with other support services.

Both Team Leaders will work closely with the Welcome Centre leadership team, with guests and volunteers. Good communication skills, along with problem-solving and decision-making, are essential.

The post is for 31 weeks beginning on Monday, 23 September 2024, with a training week (weekdays, 9:00 am – 5:00 pm). The project commences on Wednesday, 02 October 2024, and ends on Wednesday, 30 April 2025.
