Job description

Support Worker (Assistant Resident Coach)

Permanent Full Time

Luton and South Bedfordshire 

Starting at £22,000 to £24,500

37 hours per week, early and late shifts inc bank holidays and weekend shifts

Our client prides themselves on being a great place to work, where everyone feels fairly treated and enjoys their work in a welcoming and friendly environment. They’re a not-for-profit housing association that has been providing affordable housing in Luton and South Bedfordshire since 1962.

They currently have several fantastic opportunities for an Assistant Resident Coach to help their hostel residents make the move to independent living. They firmly believe in proactively supporting their residents to improve their lives and they want to coach them to realise their goals, moving from supported housing to an independent way of life.

You’ll carry out assessments of new residents, devise and implement support plans and risk management plans; conduct regular coaching sessions and support the Resident Coaches, participate in group and one to one interventions with residents of a specialist nature (e.g. CT informed interventions, motivational interviewing or harm minimisation interventions) where possible.

You’ll also participate in reflective practice sessions with regards to supporting residents with complex needs; utilise your knowledge, skills and experience to recognise difficult or challenging resident situations, supporting colleagues to influence and bring about positive change to the residents behaviour, all whilst ensuring that residents are fully informed of their rights and responsibilities. There will be mandatory training to take part in during your induction, which takes place during the working day as a general rule, so you’ll need to be available for this.

The successful candidate will have experience working with vulnerable people within a customer centred environment and will have an awareness of social issues such as homelessness, well-being, support services and affordability. You will be self-motivated, have excellent communication skills, be IT literate and a confident decision maker and highly organised, enabling you to plan and prioritise effectively. Ideally, you will have evidence of community-based work/voluntary work and have experience in social care or housing-related sector.

Due to the nature of the role, they are seeking a driven and forward-thinking individual who is qualified or would be prepared to study towards a relevant qualification. You must have a full clean UK driving licence with access to your own vehicle for work purposes. Please note, this role will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.

So, if you welcome the challenge, have experience of coaching vulnerable adults and like to work in a collaborative and authentic way that gets results, they’d love to hear from you. In return they can offer various amazing company perks including great price cinema tickets, high street discounts and loads more!
