Job description


This is an exciting opportunity for experienced staff who want to support young people to overcome barriers preventing independence.  Experience within a supported housing setting with young people or youth work will be looked upon favourably.  We want to develop a team of staff that rely on each other, work in a consistent way and have the skills necessary to be able to soak up challenging behaviour and routinely de-escalate situations involving young people who may have an offending history.

Successful applicants will have an awareness of trauma informed care and will demonstrate an understanding of young people by the way in which they respond to behaviour and contribute to a psychologically informed environment. 

The service will accommodate four young people who are likely to be looked after or will have experienced a care background and we aim to develop existing skills that will enable them to move into other shared accommodation.  The work will be intensive and rewarding, however the well- being and resilience of staff will be supported by FHA.    Building rapport with the young people and offering activities to keep them occupied will be a large part of the role.

Liaising in a professional way with social workers, leaving care workers and youth justice workers is key.  The service will be fast paced and with a high level of accountability.  Some experience of report writing is desirable.

For more information please contact: Claire Windebank

What we offer: Life Assurance, Pension (up to 4% matched by FHA), Enhanced Maternity, Paternity and Adoption Benefits, Additional Annual Leave Purchase Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Learning programmes tailored to suit different roles and services, Health Cash Plan.
