Job description

Join a growing supported accommodation provider set up against the backdrop of the housing crisis and with an aim of providing a best in class service for its clients who are predominantly single homeless adults.

Candidates with managerial experience would be ideal but not essential. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about making a difference, has pride in their work and who would relish the chance to grow with our organisation.

Our organisation provides supported accommodation to homeless vulnerable adults with identified low to medium level support needs ranging from mental health needs, medical conditions, financial difficulties, general emotional support amongst others.

The main role of a support worker will be to support their clients according to their assessed needs and to help individuals develop their own skills to ultimately allow them to live independent lives. Each client’s general well-being will be the responsibility of their support worker who will be required to hold weekly key work sessions, workshops and general ad hoc support that may be needed. Referrals to external service providers of specialist support such as drug and alcohol services amongst others and checking in on client’s progress with said services will also be a key part of the support service.  

Additional tasks outside of the focused support may include house and room inspections and general welfare checks as well as other roles which complement the core support of the clients.

Skills and experience required:

  • Has knowledge or experience in the social care sector
  • Is passionate about helping others
  • Has confident and effective communication skills
  • Is comfortable lone working & holding one-to-one key work sessions
  • Is capable of using basic IT systems and is willing to learn new support software
  • Is willing to travel to different locations in London to provide support
  • Is organised and able to maintain a detailed a coherent trail of reporting, keeping records and updating information on the relevant platforms
  • Understands the importance of equality and diversity as well as confidentiality
  • Own transport car/cycle
  • Has a UK driving licence and is willing to drive to client meetings, (mileage will be paid).

Employment is subject to a satisfactory DBS check and successfully completing a 2-week induction.
