We’re looking for a part time development worker for our ground breaking housing project, Move On Up.
Location: Bethnal Green, London
Responsible to: Move On Up manager
Salary: £16,864 (this is the pro rata salary of the full time level of £28,909).

Quaker Social Action (QSA) is a charity, founded in 1867, which addresses poverty and social exclusion. We are based in Bethnal Green. We support over 3,000 people each year directly, as well as reaching hundreds more professionals each year through our training and campaigning activities.
Move On Up is a supportive housing project which was set up in 2017. It remains the only project of its kind in the UK, growing from previous work delivered by QSA and a strong belief that, at the heart of our communities, we need decent, stable and affordable housing. In London, this is a challenging aspiration to bring to reality and the private rented sector poses many barriers and challenges even to the affluent.
As the Move On Up development worker, your role will be as the focal point of support for the 12 young adult carers housed within the four properties. You will get to know each of them well and to support their transition into the property and, ideally, their successful move on within a two year time period. During their time with us, you will work with them on identifying their goals and aspirations – and supporting them to achieve them.
Furthermore, as the only project of its kind in the UK, you will be developing expertise about the distinctive needs of young adult cares within a housing project and working with the project manager to ensure this is shared on a national stage.
