Full Time, 39 hours a week
Notting Hill Genesis are actively recruiting for an experienced Project Worker to work across two of their supported housing schemes located in Sudbury.
Notting Hill Genesis 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.
This is an exciting time to join Notting Hill Genesis as we are recruiting to several jobs in the Suffolk area. Located in Sudbury the Project Worker will be responsible for delivering person-centred services. The scheme is an accommodation based environment that supports homeless young people between the ages of 16-21 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.
This is a Level 2 position so previous experience in working in young people’s services would be suitable for this role as you will be supporting young people that can display challenging behavior and you are needed to go in and hit the ground running.
Housing and Benefits experience is preferable.
You may be required to lone work and you will need to use your own initiative so we need a strong willed and confident individual. We want to find motivational individual’s that have a genuine interest working with vulnerable young people and delivering a person-centred service.
