Casual staff, hours subject to service demand

£10 per hour

 

Do you like a challenge and don’t mind getting your hands dirty?

Connex Community Support is a charity providing support to vulnerable people across Derbyshire’s Peaks and Dales.  To help us remain financially sustainable and deliver help to those most in need, we operate a range of services run on a social enterprise basis.  We are currently developing our Hoarding Clearance service, which tackles clearance and cleaning of the properties of people affected by Hoarding Disorder.

Due to the high level of demand for this service, we are now looking for bank staff who can help us out at times of high workload. We are looking for people who have an understanding of the sensitive issues around hoarding disorders.  You should be fit, as the work will involve some heavy lifting.  You will also require a full driving licence.

The role will sometimes involve clearance of unpleasant waste materials, so this role is not for the squeamish!  In return you will receive full training and protective clothing, and will work in a small, happy and dedicated team.
