Are you passionate about improving the lives of people experiencing homelessness and social exclusion? Join Emmaus Hull & East Riding as our new Retail Supervisor and help us to increase the impact we have across our region.

Emmaus Hull & East Riding is a vibrant and growing charity focussed on supporting people affected by homelessness. We don’t just offer a bed for the night; we offer a home for as long as someone needs it, as well as meaningful work in our social enterprises and a sense of belonging.

A large proportion of our charity’s income is generated via our social enterprise which is based around our charity shops and the collection and sale of furniture, household goods, clothes, textiles, books, music, and bric-a-brac.

Emmaus is unique in that the people we support – our companions – directly contribute within our social enterprise, gaining valuable skills, confidence and experience to help them achieve their personal goals. Our companions work alongside local volunteers and contribute in all areas of our social enterprise.
