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.

For an informal discussion about the role, please contact David Hinds (Complex Case Team Leader) 07957 377 367 or Rebecca Whitehead (Community Safety Service Manager) 01623 457349.
