WLM Seymour Place Residential Interns

  • Based Seymour Place, W1
  • 36.5hrs per week
  • Placement for 1 year 

An exciting opportunity has arisen for live-in interns to join our team at WLM Seymour Place, supporting homeless people to move off the streets and back into accommodation. 

The placements will start as follows:

  • One intern to start August or September 2018
  • One intern to start November 2018

Seymour Place is a service of the West London Mission (WLM), which has been serving people affected by homelessness and poverty since 1887.  WLM have developed a range of innovative services that support and empower vulnerable people in London. 

Seymour Place provides a wide range of services to support people who are homeless or undergoing resettlement, and is a key resource in this area of London, assisting up to 100 homeless people per day. We are very well networked with other agencies, and every month we help between 20 and 30 homeless people to move off the streets and back into accommodation. 

Our team, totalling four Residential Interns, obtain valuable skills through specific training and by supporting the Project workers as they run the centre. 

This is a very rewarding opportunity to get first-hand experience of supporting homeless people in a busy day centre. It is essential that you have an interest in working with homeless people and demonstrate an understanding and appreciation of the challenges our clients face and are sensitive to these. Any relevant experience would be an advantage.
