We Are Recruiting!
Hope into Action is a rapidly growing organization that enables churches to house the vulnerable, homeless people.
We opened our first house 7 years ago and are now running over 40 homes in Peterborough, Cambridge, Nottingham, Norwich, Lincoln, Wolverhampton, Reading, Isle of Wight and Woking. Each home is in partnership with a local church and supports 2-4 adults (homeless, vulnerable, ex-offenders etc.)
As our tenant numbers increase so does the workload, and as a result we have fantastic opportunities in three of our offices (Peterborough, Cambridge and Nottingham) for people seeking to learn about social care or the charitable sector and join one of our teams as a volunteer intern.
Volunteer Internship Program
Combining your faith with your passion to help the vulnerable, you will spend around 9 months working with our team of Empowerment Workers and Support Team to gain invaluable experience and insight towards your learning or career goals. You’ll come away with that valuable experience of the sector.
Here is what another intern said: ‘Without the internship with Hope into Action I would have never got that first job in a hostel……since then my career has progressed really well and I am able to combine my passion with my work!’
We are looking for passionate, committed, talented people to commit to this exciting program.
This part time program (upto 16 flexible hours per week) will involve hands-on, practical tasks within our offices and supervised work directly with our tenants and churches, coupled with classroom training, focused reading and written assignments.
Although the program is not salaried, we will pay your expenses, lunch allowance, and training costs. The program is planned to begin in September, 2017.
