When you join Peabody, you join an extensive and growing business. One with 27,000 homes, 70,000 residents and a 150-year history.

That means you'll have every chance to achieve - while making a difference. 

Our principles are simple: we believe in helping people and communities to grow, in estates that are springboards - not safety nets. With operations in nearly every London borough and one of the sector's largest community regeneration programmes, we're always keen to meet talented people who support our ambitions.

Work with the Outreach and Partnerships & Engagement team to engage and support long term unemployed BAME women living in Greenwich, through a high quality personal development programme. Case manage clients and equip them with the skills and support required to remove or reduce barriers, promote self-development, improve work readiness and progress into education, training or employment.

You will work exclusively on Create Your Future (CYF) which is a UK wide initiative funded by the Big Lottery Fund (BLF) and the European Social Fund (ESF). CYF provides access to personal development activities leading to education, training and employment opportunities. This role is ESF funded.
