Supported Housing Officer

Location: Priory Court and Lanercost - Bristol

Salary: �20,000 - �20,500 (dependent on experience) + benefits

Our clients vision is 'To address housing need and deliver places for people to call home'.

They are a housing organisation who are embedding their new 'CARES' culture. They have been providing Supported Housing Services for over 25 years and Floating Support since 2003. They 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. They are looking to recruit a Supported Housing Officer to work primarily between Priory Court and Lanercost and Wigton.

The Supported Housing Officer Role

Priory Court is a project to help support parents in gaining the confidence and skills to be able to move out in the community. They 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. They are a part of the Bristol Parents Alliance (BPA).

Requirements for the Supported Housing Offer Role

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 their residents get the best support and outcomes. Excellent communication and strong organisational skills are essential in this role.

They 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 them. They have a comprehensive training and induction programme to cover gaps in technical knowledge if you've got the right value base to build on. This is a great opportunity to work both in a higher support project, and a low support project, as part of an enthusiastic and dedicated team.

Closing date: 9am Tuesday 19 th May 2020

Interviews will be held on: Tuesday 2 nd June 2020
