Rough Edges Night Worker

St John's Community Services
Location: Darlinghurst, NSW
Date advertised: 6th May 2024
Job Type: Part time
Closing Date: 31 May 2024

If you are looking for comfort, predictability, and neat edges in your next job, don't read any further.

However, if you are someone who wants to challenge their faith by working with people on the very margins of our community, this may be the right step for you.

  • Do you desire to reflect God's love to people, even if they are difficult to love?
  • Do you want to empower volunteers to be practical and effective servants to those on the margins?
  • Are you passionate about facilitating community with people that many in our society would not look at twice?

If the answer is yes, perhaps becoming the next Rough Edges' Night Worker is where God may be calling you.

We need someone who is resilient, kind, well organised, and able to communicate humbly and clearly with our Rough Edges patrons, volunteers, program manager, and other key stakeholders. This role works Monday to Thursday nights and can accommodate anywhere from 12-20 hours of work per week based on the availability and flexibility of the right candidate.

Ideally, you will have:

  • Qualifications in Human Services, Chaplaincy, Christian Ministry or Community Development
  • Love for Jesus and want to translate that love into practical care for vulnerable people
  • Love for Christ's church and want to see more Christians volunteering to serve those on the margins
  • Some practical experience in managing and working alongside volunteers
  • Practical experience in building community connections with people inside and outside the church
  • The ability to live with ambiguity and "rough edges"
  • Lots of energy and don't take yourself too seriously

Rough Edges is an iconic community service situated in Darlinghurst. Originally established by St John's Anglican Church Darlinghurst, it was set up to provide warmth, acceptance, and community to the homeless and vulnerable population of the Inner City of Sydney. It has a rich heritage of serving this community in Jesus' name since 1996.
