Job Description :
Be part of the modern slavery conversation.
We are Hestia, a vibrant charity that has been supporting and empowering vulnerable adults and children since 1970. This year will mark our 50th anniversary so it is an exciting time to join us!
Our approach is based on a single principle: in order to add real value to peoples lives it is essential that we work with them as equals. Our expertise and experience of working with people on their recovery journeys is valuable, and we believe this gives us a great deal to contribute, but we never impose our ideas. After all, our service users are the experts in their own lives.
Hestia is the largest provider of accommodation and outreach support to survivors of Modern Slavery in London. We also provide safe house accommodation in Kent.
Trafficking is the movement of a person from one place to another for the purposes of exploitation. Individuals may have been forced, coerced or deceived into coming, or may have come willingly to the UK but been deceived about the nature or conditions of work they would experience on their arrival.
Our team is ever expanding offering rewarding career opportunities, a wide range of training sessions, a fantastic work environment and the chance to work in a highly specialist team supporting survivors of modern-day slavery in an accommodation-based setting.
Hestia offer a culture of learning and development, with access to an extensive range of learning and development opportunities as well as genuine career progression.
In everything we do, we seek to be: respectful, genuine, dedicated, collaborative and courageous and if these values resonate with you, please apply.
We welcome applications from candidates with lived experience.
Hestia is proud to be a Disability Confident employer.
