BHT’s First Base Day Centre in Brighton provides support to assist people who are homeless or vulnerably housed to move on from the streets or insecure accommodation and realise their aspirations.
First Base operates client-centred specialist services to support people to address their healthcare needs, start realising their aspirations through work, learning and leisure and find a place they can call home.
We have a vacancy for a Sexual Health Worker (fixed term contract until 29 March 2019).
The salary is £23,830 per annum for a 37 hours per week, based in Brighton. Annual Leave entitlement starts at 25 working days and a 4% employer’s pension contribution (the level of this is reviewed annually).
The post holder will be responsible for the delivery of sexual health services, advice and training to housing and day centre staff and to hostel residents, people living in temporary or emergency accommodation and clients of First Base.
Essential requirements for this post are significant experience and knowledge of work in the area of sexual health / HIV, an excellent understanding of sexual health promotion as well as proven team work and good interpersonal skills.
Experience of working with people who are street homeless is not essential; however candidates should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the issues people with multiple and complex needs face and a commitment to meeting the needs of adults who are homeless.
