About The Role

Excellent opportunity as a Night Concierge to provide an overnight presence at The Limes, Manchester making sure our residents are well and our building is secure.

About the Service

The Limes is a 26 unit supported accommodation service for young males aged 18-25 years old, clients who live at our service come from a variety of backgrounds/circumstances including relationship breakdowns, leaving care, rough sleeping or refugees. At the Limes we seek to provide a warm, respectful and supportive environment for clients. We want every young person who walks through the door to feel that The Limes is their home from Day 1. Staff aim to support and encourage the young men throughout their stay/journey with us as they move towards independent living.

What our staff say
I love being part of a team that genuinely care about the service and clients, a staff team who strive to make sure that every young person feels safe, supported and encouraged to achieve their hopes and aspirations. Nothing beats when a young person turns up at the front door years after they have moved out, filling you in on everything that they have done/achieved since leaving, these are the moments you feel privileged to have been part of someone’s journey and lucky to do work where you do.
