General questions

Q

What are Porchlight’s working hours?

A

In our hostels there is a rota system. Shifts last 8 to 10 hours (the earliest start is 8am, latest finish is 10pm) and can take place on any day of the week. Our community and office-based teams work 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Q

Can my application be kept on file for other positions?

A

We receive so many applications that we are unable to keep your details on file. However, registering for job alerts means you'll be the first to know when new roles become available. You can re-apply for the same job role even if previous applications were unsuccessful.

Q

How do I contact the HR team?

A

For recruitment queries call 01227 760078 (select option 3 and ask to speak to the HR Assistant) or email recruitment@porchlight.org.uk. For general queries email hr@porchlight.org.uk
