Job description: Housing Support Worker, Leicester

Service Care Solutions are currently recruiting for a Housing Support Worker vacancy for a local authority based in Leicester.

As a Housing Support Worker based in Leicester, it is essential that you have experience of case work and have a commitment to working with vulnerable and excluded groups. As you will be working with vulnerable individuals and completing records and support plans you must also have strong communication skills, both written and verbal.

The key focus of this role is to provide a high quality housing related support service to vulnerable people in order to enable them to live independently in the community and sustain housing. You will be supporting vulnerable people, often with chaotic life styles, including entrenched single homeless people, rough sleepers, those with substance use issues and people with community care needs into independent accommodation, empowering them to live more independently.

Your aim will be to facilitate the transition for service users moving into independent accommodation and maintain tenancy support and assist in identifying and developing a support network in the community for those wishing to live independently.

To be successful in this role, you will have an understanding of the issues facing vulnerable people, with housing related support needs, including dependency needs, homelessness and general life skills. You will also have an awareness of relevant policy frameworks, key housing and other relevant legislation in relation to supporting vulnerable people.

Experience in a Support Work role will be highly beneficial as this will provide you with practical experience of providing frontline advice and assistance, to a wide range of vulnerable people, either in hostel work/supported housing or tenancy support, resettlement work or related field.

This is an initial two-month contract covering a period of increased workload, though there is a chance of extension.

Please ensure you have an enhanced DBS before applying for this role.
