We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and conscientious person to join our Supported Housing team in our Ivybridge project. You will work one set night per week in Ivybridge, and one floating night to cover annual leave and sickness at either Ivybridge or Newton Abbot.
You will be lone working with young people (aged 16-25) who have a range of support and housing needs; providing a holistic service assisting with accessing benefits, managing finances, health and wellbeing, maintaining accommodation, accessing education, employment or training. In addition to this, you will sometimes give further support and sign-posting for additional needs. You will need to take a creative approach to support, adapting your style of communication with each individual to provide a person-centred approach to help the young people establish and work towards their goals and aspirations.
You will also take an active role in the management and oversight of the buildings undertaking health and safety checks. This post has on-call support from management.
