WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING:

  • You will be making pro-active interventions with outreach clients to ensure comprehensive, person-centred advice and advocacy on housing and other issues.

  • Support clients to engage in consultation events both within the organisation and in the wider community
  • Work in close partnership with other outreach and floating support services working as one team
  • Attend weekly multi-agency review group to review service user's interventions, review progress and work towards positive changes to avoid a return to the streets

ABOUT YOU:

  • You understand the needs of rough sleepers and the effects of trauma on individuals with complex lives
  • You are PROACTIVE, PASSIONATE and RESILIENT.
  • You fully embrace the motivation and passion to advocate for individuals who have experienced homelessness or social exclusion
  • You can work flexibly and creatively with individuals who may have seemingly intractable problems

WHAT'S FOR YOU:

  • Full in-depth training from experience facilitators
  • Supportive induction
  • 27 Days annual leave (extra day off for your birthday)
  • Generous Pension Scheme
  • Sliding salary scale

MUST:

  • Understanding of the needs of rough sleepers and the effects of trauma on individuals with complex lives.
  • DRIVING LICENCE and access to a car.
