We have an opportunity in our highly skilled dispersed housing team for a new colleague to join us in making a difference for young people moving on from homelessness. Our passionate and hardworking team does this through supporting young people to achieve their goals and aspirations and you could be a part of this amazing effort.

We are a leading youth homeless charity based in the South West, working with over 2,500 young people. We have strong local partnerships and adhere to the best practice in the sector. We build trusting relationships between our young people and our colleagues and this is at the core of our work.

What we are looking for:
• You are experienced in housing management and used to providing support and guidance to vulnerable young people. You engage young people with confidence and passion.
• You are empathetic and truly understand the needs of homeless young people, young people leaving care, and the barriers they face.
• You love being around young people and working with them.
• You are an enthusiastic team player; you are super organised and always open to new ideas and creative ways of working.
• You are committed to the principles of Psychologically Informed Environments (PIE) and the use of reflective practice in your work.
What you will be doing:
• By developing individual support plans that promote independent living skills including accommodation, EET and wellbeing, you will help our young people achieve independence.
• Using your knowledge and creativity, you will help our young people maximise their income and manage any arrears, ensuring optimum income is achieved.
• Using your problem-solving skills, you will explore move-on options with young people as you support them toward independent living.
• By being well organised, efficient and effective you will undertake a host of housing management tasks including health and safety checks to ensure the safety of young people, colleagues and properties.
You will be in the Dispersed Housing Team and you will be line managed by a Deputy Housing Manager.

What you get in return:
• 30 days annual leave plus all the Bank Holidays.
• Regular supervision, yearly Performance Development Reviews and a supportive team, enhanced through monthly Reflective Practice sessions, where colleagues learn from their own and others’ experiences.
• A listening and learning environment, with annual Colleague Wellbeing Surveys.
• Employer pension contribution of 4%.

Covering Letter Guidance
Please note that the online application form cannot be saved until it is fully complete. We recommend that you prepare your Covering Letter before you start the online application.

Your Covering Letter will form the most important basis on which your skills, experience and personal attributes will be tested against the job criteria. Without it, your application cannot progress to the shortlisting stage.

You should refer to the Person Specification document within the Job Pack and cover only the elements that are tested at this stage of the recruitment process. Elements that only have the word ‘interview’ next to them will be tested at the next stage of the process and do not need to be covered in your letter.


Equal opportunities for everyone:
We safeguard and promote the safety and welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults. Any job offer will depend on a satisfactory DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) Barred List Disclosure Check.

We believe those with a criminal record should have an equal chance to become employees or volunteers. We also pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer for everyone regardless of age, disability, gender identity, race, religion and beliefs, sex and sexual orientation. We are particularly keen to increase applications from Black and Minority Ethnic groups as they are currently under-represented.

Please see our Policies section on the website, for further information. If you need an adjustment made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible.

This is not a Local Authority post and applicants will need to satisfy themselves with regard to condition of service.
