Llamau is daring to imagine a world without homelessness – will you help us to create it?

Llamau’s mission is to end youth homelessness and homelessness for women in Wales. It’s a big ambition and to some people it might seem impossible, but we know that if we all work together, homelessness genuinely doesn’t have to exist.

We’re looking for passionate, talented and tenacious people to join Team Llamau.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Support Assistant within our young people’s services in Merthyr.  You will be part of a support team working with young people aged 16-21 at our 24 hours supported accommodation project, Garth Newydd Court, and also our dispersed housing, Flooks.  

We are looking to recruit flexible, resilient, enthusiastic team players who can engage with those we support, enabling them to achieve their goals.
