Current Vacancies

SPEAR was founded in 1986 on the principle that people shouldn’t die because they don’t have a home. Since then, we’ve developed a range of services that together provide an integrated pathway from rough sleeping to independent accommodation. We recognise that it takes both time and courage to change; to trust new people; learn new skills; take chances and commit to a hopeful future.

We are inspired by our clients; by our dedicated staff and volunteers and by the many supporters, past and present who enable this work to take place. Homelessness isn’t just a housing problem, it’s also about isolation, fear and self-doubt. That’s why we don’t just provide a roof overhead, we commit to making a lasting difference.



Sessional Worker Roles

If you are interested in working for SPEAR but don’t have the availability for a fixed term commitment, we are always looking for locum/sessional workers based at our Twickenham Office and Richmond Hostel. Previous experience in key working or working within the homelessness field is required. This position is a great opportunity for flexible working along with learning and development, with workers covering staff leave in a range of different roles within our services. To be considered for the position of one of our sessional workers, please email your CV to job@spearlondon.org and any particular availability for work you may have. We pay an hourly rate that is in line with the London living wage to our sessional workers and are happy to say that our workers are under no obligation to accept any work offered to them, just as we are not obligated to offer any work if there is none availability.
