We currently have a unique and exciting opportunity for an inspirational support worker to work within the Stepdown Housing Provision in Oxford City.

We are looking for a support worker who knows what it takes to support vulnerable people for a two week period on discharge from hospital – this includes people who are homeless or vulnerably housed, unemployed, often with a history of substance misuse, mental health issues, or offending behaviour.

Put simply, it’s about making a difference. A real difference.

The Stepdown Support Worker is responsible for managing a case load, providing support to help people gain suitable accommodation or return to their own properties.

  • Preventing homeless people returning to the streets
  • Supporting people who are vulnerably housed to return home

  • Cope effectively with difficult life events
  • Access services including digital services and support when needed

What you’ll need

To be well-organised, IT literate with good communication skills, with the ability to remain calm and patient in challenging circumstances. You must have a good understanding of support planning processes. What’s more, you're contributing to monitoring and implementing changes that improve outcomes for people. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.
