Jobs at UGM

Outreach Workers, Hastings (Permanent, Full-Time)

The Opportunity

Do you enjoy building relationships?  Do you desire to show the love of Jesus, intentionally connecting with our DTES community members by listening, praying and providing hope?  Are you adaptable, client-centered, collaborative, and service-oriented?  Then we may have an opportunity for you.  We are looking for Outreach Workers on our Hastings Chaplaincy and Outreach team.  The Outreach Worker position involves ministering to the men and women living in the neighbourhood of the Hastings facility. The job may include making referrals for housing, clothing, shelter, recovery and a wide variety of other duties as needed by the individuals we serve.  The work will be based out of the Hastings facility; from time to time the Outreach Worker will assist Outreach at other locations.

You will frequently deal with clients in crisis situations, brought about by diverse problems.  There will be other staff nearby to assist as required.

There are two permanent, full-time positions available. One of these positions will have a fixed Thursday-Monday schedule, with 7.5 hours shifts that fall between 10 am and 9:30 pm. The other position has two fixed shifts per week: on Saturdays and Sundays, from 6am to 2pm, and has 3 other weekly shifts scheduled sometime between 6am and 12pm, Monday-Friday, depending on our needs.  For a copy of the full job description, click on the "Download Job Description" button on the left panel of this page.
