We firmly believe in proactively supporting our residents to improve their lives and we want to coach them to realise their goals, moving from supported housing to an independent way of life.

You’ll carry out assessments of new residents, devise and implement support plans and risk management plans; conduct regular coaching sessions and support the Resident Coaches, participate in group and one to one interventions with residents of a specialist nature (e.g. CT informed interventions, motivational interviewing or harm minimisation interventions) where possible.

There will be mandatory training to take part in during your induction, which takes place during the working day as a general rule, so you’ll need to be available for this.

The successful candidate will have experience working with vulnerable people within a customer centred environment and will have an awareness of social issues such as homelessness, well-being, support services and affordability. You will be self-motivated, have excellent communication skills, be IT literate and a confident decision maker and highly organised, enabling you to plan and prioritise effectively. Ideally, you will have evidence of community-based work/voluntary work and have experience in social care or housing-related sector.

Due to the nature of the role, we are seeking a driven and forward-thinking individual who is qualified or would be prepared to study towards a relevant qualification.
