Job description

As a homelessness charity and housing association, our clients are at the heart of what we do. We provide a bed and support to more than 2,800 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to end homelessness and rebuild lives.

We have an exciting opportunity for a female project worker to join the team at a semi-independent female only housing project. The aim of the service is to provide a safe, stable and positive environment for 9 single women who need housing management and support along with having a history of enduring mental health issues.

All of our clients are referred from Kensington and Chelsea’s Social Inclusion Team and their length of stay at the project will depend upon the resettlement option available to them. The average length of stay is up to 2 years.

The focus of this role is to provide on-going support as appropriate to this client group with a clear emphasis on life-skills, confidence building, and liaising with mental health services to ensure adequate support. There will be a culture of active engagement and involvement leading to a greater level of independence.

You will primarily be lone working at the project but will sit within a small team whom are all situated locally with some cross over. Service hours are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm with scope to be flexible outside of those dependant on the needs of the service.

To be successful in this role you should have a good understanding of the needs of homeless people and the particular needs of this project’s client group. You will be able to work in an empathic manner within professional boundaries. You will have excellent written and oral communication skills to enable you to effectively advocate on behalf of your clients and will also possess good literacy, numeracy and I.T skills.

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.
