The ideal candidate will have experience of working with vulnerable people with high levels of needs and risk and an understanding of the range of appropriate approaches, to working clients with mental and physical ill heath, drug and/or alcohol use and/or other social issues. Additionally, you will have an understanding of housing and other related legislation and be able to liaise with a range of service providers and agencies; in order to establish or improve services for our clients. 

Closing date for applications: 19th April 2020 (at Midnight) 

Interviews will be held: tbc

This post will require an Enhanced DBS check to be processed for the successful applicant. 

Our attractive benefits package includes:

  • A salary increase after successfully completing six months.

  • 25 days annual leave, increasing annually to the maximum 30 days (plus paid Bank Holidays),
