Depaul is a cross border charity supporting some of the most marginalised individuals, couples and families experiencing homelessness. Our mission is to end homelessness and change the lives of those affected by it. Would you like to help us to meet our mission?
We are a values led organisation and aim, at all times, to live and breathe these values in our everyday work. Our values are based on four key principles:
Comprehensive induction – all new staff are provided with a robust induction and probationary period to equip them with the knowledge and tools they need to carry out their role.
Genuine development opportunities – in the last 3 years 50% of Deputy Managers that have been appointed were Project Workers and 10% of Relief Workers have went on to become Project Workers.
Exciting training initiatives – we have extensive training courses staff can avail of, here are just a few:
We keep you informed – We hold a number of ‘Pillar’ days throughout the year to bring all staff together to keep everyone up to date on changes, developments and successes over the year. We also hold a yearly staff conference.
Support – We have a supervision model that means you will receive one to one time with your line manager on a 4-6 week basis. The purpose of supervision is to have a holistic approach; it is not just about supporting you to reach your goals and potential it is also about your well being. It is encouraged to be a two way process, so you have opportunity to feedback to your manager about how supported you feel.
Employee assisted programme – Each staff member gets access to free 24/7 access to a variety of assisted helplines and services.
Enhanced terms and conditions – 35-hour working week, 25 days annual leave plus 10 statutory holidays, occupational sick pay, occupational maternity pay, income protection insurance and contributory pension. Both annual leave and occupational sick pay increase with length of service.
