Working within the Community Safety department you will be responsible for managing a caseload involving individuals with complex issues and multiple support needs relating to housing, homelessness, debt, health, finances, benefits, unemployment, social care and anti-social behaviour.
The individuals you will be supporting and working with are likely to have had difficulty engaging with public services in the past and will benefit from your co-ordination as the single point of contact to reduce their ongoing dependency of multiple public services and restore balance in their lives.
Dealing with a wide range of issues, the successful candidate will have a track record of being a creative and innovative problem solver and securing positive outcomes for service users.
Ideally you will be experienced in working with residents that present with multiple complex issues with a background in housing, homelessness, debt, health, finances, benefits, unemployment, social care or anti-social behaviour.
The benefits and impact of the service are demonstrated through ongoing evaluations and there is a real opportunity to change people’s lives. We are looking for an extremely positive, enthusiastic, committed and innovative individual with a high level of emotional intelligence. This role offers the opportunity to fundamentally change lives and explore the real needs of our residents in a non-prescriptive, non-judgmental way.
Please specify whether you are interested in the full time or part time vacancy within the supporting statement section of your application.
