Current Vacancies

Currently we are looking for a number of highly compassionate, caring and dedicated people to help us run a new emergency night shelter for rough sleepers in Bolton this coming winter. These are fixed-term hourly paid positions to support the vital work which will be done by our night shelter volunteers.

There are two job roles available. We are seeking Team Leaders to oversee night shifts at the shelter on a rota basis. We are also looking to recruit Support Workers.

Details about these opportunities are explained in our job description for each role, i.e.

Bolton Homeless Alliance Night Shelter Team Leader   and

Bolton Homeless Alliance Night Shelter Support Worker

Further information about our ‘In off the Street’ project can be viewed here.   If having read all this, you have further questions, please contact us by phone on 01204 385848 or by email:
