Felixstowe - Suffolk
Full Time, 39 hours a week
FTC until 31/01/2020
£19,738 per annum pro rata
Do you have a passion to support homeless vulnerable people living in supported housing?
We are recruiting for a passionate individual to join our growing team as an experienced Project Worker to provide support at our homeless supported housing services across a number of services in the Felixstowe area. If this is of interest then we would love to hear from you…
Notting Hill Genesis Housing Care & Support is one of the largest providers of housing related support to single homeless people within Suffolk. We have recently undergone an ambitious change programme within several of our schemes across the county. The aim of the new services is to ensure our customers achieve their goals and aspirations through the support, encouragement and guidance of our staff.
Located across 3 of our schemes in Felixstowe, the Project Worker will be responsible for delivering person-centred services. These schemes are accommodation based environments that support single homeless people who may have experienced drug, alcohol, substance misuse problems, and/or have varying support needs.
The primary focus of our schemes is to support clients in a range of areas, including finding employment, recovery from addiction, and building stability through a range of social activities. A successful outcome is achieved when our customers can move on to more suitable long-term accommodation, appropriate to their needs.
Previous homeless supported housing experience would be suitable for this role as you will be supporting single homeless people that can display challenging behavior. You may be required to lone work and use your own initiative which will need a strong willed and confident individual. We want to find motivational individual’s that have a genuine interest working with vulnerable people and delivering a person-centred service.
Housing and Benefits knowledge is preferable as this is a level 2 position.
Hours will be 39 hours a week, over a rota basis. You will be required to work some weekends.
