Job description
Outreach Worker
London, TW1

If you have experience of working in street or community outreach services, this is an amazing opportunity to help change the lives of some of the most marginalised people in our society.

About Us

We are SPEAR, a charity dedicated to helping homeless people in South and West London find secure accommodation and work towards a positive future.

For 30 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to support homeless people to recover from their personal issues and break down the barriers that they face.

We recognise that homelessness is much more than just a housing issue, so we provide a range of accommodation and support services to help people reach their full potential.

We’re currently looking for an Outreach Worker to join our passionate team and support the delivery of our rough sleeper outreach service.

The Role

As an Outreach Worker, you’ll enable rough sleepers to leave the street and take their first steps towards lasting, genuine independence.

Working as part of a team, you’ll help to build an accurate picture of the number of people sleeping rough in the borough, make contact with rough sleepers and provide them with support based on their individual needs.

Specifically, you will:

- Manage a caseload of clients, offering assertive, consistent and ongoing support
- Help clients to access appropriate services, including accommodation
- Take part in case reviews with your Team Leader
- Maintain constructive working relationships with other service providers, businesses and community groups

About You

To join us as an Outreach Worker, you’ll need:

- Previous experience of working in street or community outreach services
- Experience of motivating complex and diverse client groups to engage with support
- Previous experience of delivering and administering an assertive case management approach
- Knowledge of the services and legislative environment regarding housing, health, work and immigration as it relates to homeless people
- The demonstrable ability to record and report work to a good standard, using IT systems as well as written records
- The ability to build relationships with services and develop pathways to enable clients to make and sustain positive change
- The ability to support outreach volunteers and peer mentors in outreach shifts

Other organisations may call this role Homelessness Outreach Worker, Rough Sleeper Outreach Worker, Street Outreach Worker, Community Outreach Co-ordinator, Community Support Officer, Community Outreach Officer, or Homelessness Support Worker.

This is a full-time role which will include working shift patterns that reflect the rough sleeping habits that may exist. This may include working early mornings and/or late nights if required.

The Benefits

- Salary of £25,500 per annum
- 26 days’ holiday (rising to 31 with length of service)
- Pension scheme 
- Enhanced maternity and paternity leave
- Access to a free Employee Assistance Programme
- A range of benefits including cycle to work scheme and staff wellbeing sessions
- Training and development opportunities

This is a brilliant opportunity to support the delivery of vital services that are making a tangible impact on the community.

You’ll have the chance to work alongside experienced professionals who understand the input needed to bring about positive change. We attempt to unlock the potential in everyone we work with and will encourage you to do so too.

We’re committed to developing the skills and abilities of the people we work with. All new staff undertake a variety of training in their first six months and we actively encourage our people to undertake formal or accredited training.

We build communities in which everyone has a place to call home and provide the help needed to lead a fulfilling life. If you’d like to make a difference as part of our talented team, we’d love to hear from you.

The closing date for applications is the 17th August 2020. Interviews are scheduled to be held on the week commencing 24th August 2020 and will be held virtually to ensure social distancing, due to the current climate.

At SPEAR, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone, regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. We are facing diverse problems, so need diverse people to tackle them.
