Welfare Support Worker
Racing Welfare is a national benevolent charity supporting working
and retired staff, including their close dependants, from the British
thoroughbred horseracing and breeding industry.
Due to the opening of our brand new office and young person's
accommodation in Malton, North Yorkshire in early 2015, we are
looking for a committed and motivated person to join our team.
The post holder will provide comprehensive support to the Regional
Welfare Officer as well as providing housing support to the young
people living in the accommodation. You will support the Regional
Welfare Officer in service provision to beneficiaries of the charity.
The post requires experience of supporting, or a strong desire to
support, people; combined with excellent listening and interpersonal
skills. Experience or knowledge of working with young people would
be an advantage, alongside an understanding or interest in the
horseracing industry, although this is not essential as training would
be provided for the right person.
We are a supportive team and need someone flexible who is able to
get involved and promote the ethos of the charity, and support us in
developing this new and exciting project.
As this post will involve direct contact with young people and
vulnerable adults, alongside some work of a sensitive nature, it will
be subject to a satisfactory, enhanced DBS disclosure. We also
make checks on staff working with vulnerable adults and young
people against the DBS barred lists.
This is a full time permanent contract, Monday to Friday 9:00am to
5:00pm.Closing date: Friday 28th November 2014.
