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. We’re starting up a new floating support service for young people who need support to find, set-up and maintain their homes. Do you have the skills and desire to make a difference?

    You’ll be an empathic person, able to understand and respond to the needs of young people as they navigate through a challenging time in their lives. You will support them through key-working sessions and a variety of other ways to develop their confidence and resilience as individuals and help them move to a positive independent future. 

    You’ll be working alongside passionate and supportive colleagues in a rewarding environment, where you’ll be making a huge contribution to creating a Wales without homelessness, every single day. 

    These roles are based with Llamau’s new Floating Support Service for Blaenau-Gwent. Office location tbc.

    These roles will participate in the first tier of Llamau’s 5-tier on-call service, approximately 1 week in 15.
