Job description

Role: Supported Housing Officer (Mental Health)

Location: Lewisham
Hours: 35 hrs per week. 9am – 5pm, Mon - Fri

Salary: Up to £26k p.a. on completion of 6-month probation

Contract: Permanent (6 months probationary period)

Closing Date: 24th June 2022. This vacancy may close sooner should a suitable candidate be found.

Job Purpose:
To provide high quality support and consistent tenancy advice for our clients, with the aim of helping them recover, move on and rebuild their lives. Quo Vadis Trust (QVT, registered charity number 1116196) is a small charity in South East London. We provide a range of supported housing in South East London to approximately two hundred adults whose mental health needs are such that they require support with accommodation and other issues.

As a Supported Housing Officer you will be expected to manage and key work a caseload  of adults with multiple and various mental health needs such as anxiety, depression and bi-polar disorder amongst other diagnoses, varied support needs such as substance misuse issues, and in some cases a lack of trust in support services, therefore one of the challenges of this role will be to encourage your clients to effectively engage with the recovery process. You will work with your clients to carry out individual support and needs planning and create SMART goals to maximise the potential for their recovery.

You will be greeting new clients, risk assessing them and delivering an induction process to welcome them into our services. Part of this role also involves providing advice on welfare and benefits, therefore an understanding of universal credit, housing and homelessness legislation is an advantage. A critical part of this role will be helping clients to move on and successfully reintegrate back into society – our mission statement is to ‘promote recovery, maximise independence and build community’.

The full job description is available on our website.

About you:

Are you dynamic and creative? Do you think outside the box? Do you love challenges when you can see the tangible rewards?  Then we are looking for you. 

A comprehensive induction and training programme will be provided so if you think you have what it takes to succeed in this role, then what are you waiting for? You should be compassionate, approachable and proactive in your approach to helping our clients as they recover and prepare to re-join the community. The role comprises routine daily tasks, for example performing health and safety checks and liaising with your clients to establish their welfare, but there will also be unforeseen challenges to overcome and manage. A background in social care or mental health is an advantage, but more important is a patient, caring and compassionate outlook and the ability to stay calm and think on your feet. Our values are dignity, excellence, respect, integrity and kindness, and we expect our whole team to live these values in all that they do.

Benefits: Pension scheme; Health Care Plan; Employee Assistance Programme; ‘Recommend a friend’ bonus; Generous holiday allowance; Birthday Leave; Enhanced sick pay after probation; Training and qualifications offered; Free life insurance; Real opportunities for career progression and experience working within multi-disciplinary teams.

Our commitment to diversity: We are committed to tackling systemic inequalities by being proactive in creating opportunities for people from under-represented groups. With this in mind we welcome applications from all ethnic backgrounds, religions, gender identifications and sexual orientations, and from anyone who considers themselves to have a disability.
