Do you want to work for an organisation that truly cares about its staff?

Do you want to use your skills to make a difference to the lives of hundreds of families every week?

If the answer is yes, Space is the place for you.

“I started at Space as a CJS trainee doing admin work on a temporary basis, which was an amazing experience. It led to me applying for a permanent job here where I have learned loads of new skills.  I’ve also received a lot of support to start a college course, which I love!

As a young single mum, it’s been really great to get the support I needed to find a job that fits in with my son.”

“Since becoming a befriender I have been overall happier in my life, doing something for others really is rewarding.  I became a lot more aware of the different lives people live and the struggles they may face.  It definitely lets me appreciate my life more, I think it is the best thing I have ever been a part of.”

“I’ve loved volunteering at the Beacon Club for 13 years and there’s more to come. It’s great to see happy members and truly rewarding to know that you are enriching their lives, it gives a purpose to my week too.”
