AMAT UK is a charity based in Medway and Kent, with over twenty-years of experience of providing supported accommodation in the homeless sector. Throughout this time, AMAT UK has always prided itself on developing our service to meet the needs of our service users, and to benefit and enrich the wider community.
In order to achieve this, we aim to employ staff who are passionate about supporting our mission:
To reduce and prevent homelessness by providing accommodation and re-building lives, through personalised support and collaboration with other partner organisations.
This means that whilst having experience in the role you are applying for is definitely an advantage, we provide a comprehensive training package and therefore welcome applications from those with transferable skills who are passionate about working in this in this sector – empowering homeless and vulnerable people to achieve sustainable independence, wellbeing and make positive changes in their lives.
This also means applicants can include service users who have made significant changes to their lives and can benefit others by using the experience they have gained whilst living at AMAT UK.
We have a wide range of departments and potential areas of work, from operational departments including our Front Office, Support, and Housing services teams, to back office departments including our Housing Benefit, Human Resources, and Finance teams.
All roles come with benefits including 28 days annual leave entitlement per year (increasing after two years’ service in increments, up to a maximum of 33 days per year), access to AMAT UK’s Employee Assistance Programme, and workplace pension scheme.
We believe that all AMAT UK staff need to have a good understanding of how the organisation works as a whole, so they can see where their role fits into that. To achieve this, all successful candidates will receive a complete induction which involves shadowing other departments to see how they work over the first week of their employment with us. New staff are also provided with an induction pack which includes a new staff induction handbook, relevant information on your staff benefits including our Employee Assistance Programme, Financial Wellbeing platform and Workplace Pension, as well as an AMAT folder, notepad and pen so you can jot down any questions, and make notes on your experiences during your induction!
AMAT UK aims to promote equal opportunities in all areas of the service it provides and all areas of its employment practices, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.
If you are looking for a challenge and want to make a difference, we look forward to hearing from you!
