Do you have recent experience of providing specialist housing advice and working with people with multiple disadvantages? Then join Shelter as a Senior Advice, Support & Guidance Worker – Housing and help ensure our clients get the support they need.

About Shelter
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the team

The Adult Support Hub (ASH) service is funded by Birmingham City Council’s Adult Services. The service works with adults with care needs, aged 25+ living in Birmingham, who are vulnerably housed and need support to retain their current homes or access suitable housing. The ASH team receives referrals from adult services or other agencies across Birmingham, and provides support to individuals to achieve agreed outcomes tailored to their needs and goals over an 8-week period. The team will work closely with Shelter Birmingham’s advice team, and our in-house legal team and support workers. Advisers will actively seek opportunities to develop casework which contributes to fairer housing and better housing conditions across the city by contributing to Shelter’s wider work on systems change through strategic litigation, community organising and campaigning.

About the role
As a Senior Advice, Support & Guidance Worker, you will provide advice and support with housing and related issues across the community and manage a varied caseload.You will also identify themes coming through your work and look at systemic change, working with the Hub to provide evidence for any work that may be ongoing.  Working flexibly across Birmingham to meet the needs of the service, you will keep up to date on changes in legislation, utilising this in your day to day casework and line manage, mentor and coach Community Advisers and Advice Assistants. You will also lead on involvement of those with lived experience and ensure co-production in service delivery/design.

About you
You will have experience of providing specialist housing advice and support to people with multiple disadvantages within a safeguarding framework and experience of ensuring quality through supervision, mentoring and coaching. You’ll also need experience of developing and delivering group training sessions. Proactive, results-driven and sensitive to the needs of others, you work well within a team and aren’t afraid to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas, methods and processes if appropriate. Experience of using a range of IT tools including case management systems, Microsoft Office applications, internet and email with the ability to type is essential.

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave (pro rata), enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
