We are looking for individuals with passion and drive to provide support, enabling our clients with a range of complex needs to achieve their potential and live more independently within their community. Ideally, you will have experience of working with vulnerable adults with mental health problems.
As we take a client centred approach to delivering support, we are looking for candidates who pride themselves on having excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to form positive relationships with people from varied backgrounds.
You will use these skills to work with colleagues and partner agencies to achieve the best outcome for our clients. This will include regular key working, support planning, as well as liaising with statutory and non-statutory agencies on behalf of the clients, actively encouraging choice and involvement, or acting as advocate when required.
In accordance with your core beliefs of delivering a genuinely needs led service, we will look to you to help clients maximise their income, budget, pay their rent and engage with work and training.
Previous housing related support experience is desirable. In addition you will also have the ability to learn new skills and work well as part of our committed and hard working team. Initiative will also be key to your success, as you will be required to source innovative solutions to problems that allow residents independence to be maximised.
Many different experiences can be useful and relevant to our work. So if you have strong communication skills, and experience of working with vulnerable people, then you could succeed in this varied yet challenging role. Candidates who show enthusiasm and commitment to progressing their career within a supported housing environment are encouraged to apply.
Travel is a requirement of the role, a full valid drivers licence and access to transport is desirable.
As this is a bank position, a flexible approach to work is required as you may be asked to work evening and weekend shifts, as well as during times of absence and sickness.
To apply, please complete an online application or submit your CV and covering letter at www.sanctuary-group.co.uk . For further assistance please contact Niki McDivitt on 0151 949 1999 and quote Ref:SCG1481O.
