Paddy McGettigan, Director of Homelessness Services at Simon Community NI said: "We're strengthening our network of Support across 12 towns and cities in Northern Ireland, so there are jobs in Belfast, Lisburn, Bangor, L'Derry and Coleraine to name a few.

"In addition to the full time positions available, we also need to further develop our team of casual staff, so the opportunities are perfect for students, or those seeking experience leading to a career in social work, mental health or nursing.
