Elim Housing Association has been providing Supported Housing Services for over 25 years and Floating Support since 2003. We also provide services to around 800 individuals and families in England and Wales in more independent accommodation and continue to actively develop new initiatives and build new homes. We are looking to recruit a Supported Housing Officer to work primarily between Priory Court and Lanercost and Wigton.

Priory Court is a project to help support young parents in gaining the confidence and skills to be able to move out in the community. We are staffed 7 days a week 8am to 8pm which enables us to support those parents with higher support needs, so flexibility is required as the work pattern includes some evenings, weekends and Bank Holiday work. Lanercost is a project for couples and single parents with low support needs to gain the skills and experience to move into the community. It is staffed mainly during office hours. We are a part of the Bristol Parents Alliance (BPA).

Responsibilities of the Supported Housing Officer:

Supported Housing Officer role is both challenging and rewarding. You will be responsible for working closely with our residents ensuring they receive psychologically informed support on a 1 to 1 basis. You will also be responsible for supporting them with managing and sustaining their tenancy, including rent and housing management alongside working with other agencies to ensure our residents get the best support and outcomes. Excellent communication and strong organisational skills are essential in this role.

Requirements of the Supported Housing Officer:

We are ideally looking for someone with a positive, solution focused approach with a background of working with vulnerable people in housing or a support related environment. Although this is desirable it is not essential. Your attitude, commitment and work ethic for this post is equally important to us. We have a comprehensive training and induction programme to cover gaps in technical knowledge if you've got the right value base to build on.

If you feel like you meet the above criteria for the Supported Housing Officer, then please apply now!

Closing date: 9am Monday 17th February 2020

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 25th February 2020
