Stonepillow is the leading homelessness organisation working in the Chichester and Arun areas of West Sussex. The Stonepillow Restore Project is a furniture reuse project and helps reduce furniture and domestic appliances going to landfill, providing a training environment for the unemployed to find sustainable employment and providing good quality recycled furniture to low income households at an affordable cost.
Our Restore project has been working closely with the Job Centre Plus and other training providers to give the unemployed an opportunity of gaining valuable work experience and an up to date working reference by taking on trainees for work experience placements. We also support volunteer trainees from our own projects by offering them a structure to their week and keeping them interested and active.
We are looking for an electrically qualified Workshop Supervisor with all round DIY skills to demonstrate a competency in repairing donated domestic appliances ensuring they have been adequately tested and made ready for resale. You will have an all-round ability to supervise and mentor our trainee volunteers in basic repairs, both with domestic appliances and the general restoring of furniture donated to the project.
It is essential that the successful candidate will have a non-judgmental and enabling approach to supporting single homeless and vulnerable adults and have experience and knowledge of Health Housing and Work issues facing service users who are in recovery.
