Job Description

Glass Door is an independent charity looking to recruit Overnight workers for London’s largest winter accommodation projects. Between 15 January and 8 April 2018, Glass Door will provide accommodation for up to 20 rough sleepers in churches across the borough of Richmond. This service will complement our other shelters in Kensington & Chelsea, Hammersmith & Fulham and Wandsworth which provide a further 100 spaces a night.

Our shelters run from a different church venue, every night of the week.  The shifts are waking shifts that last from 10pm until 7.15am.  Working as part of a two-person team, you will be responsible for ensuring the security and safety of all guests in the shelter through the night, and that all project activities meet health and safety requirements.  You must remain awake and alert throughout the night and respond appropriately to any situations or emergencies that may occur.  The shelters house up to 20 people each night – though more may be accommodated if the weather is exceptionally cold.  You will be expected to take part in regular checks throughout the night.  The two duty Project Workers are also responsible for preparing and serving breakfast to our guests and ensuring that everyone leaves each venue by 7am.
