The Parish Rooms is a supported housing scheme in Bridgnorth for single, homeless people. There are 12 units within the scheme which are a starting point to get homeless people age 18+ back on their feet. We are recruiting for a Support Coordinator to join our fantastic team on a 6 month fixed term contract basis.

You'll be responsible for carrying out an appropriate needs and risk assessment with potential new customers prior to entry into the service and creating and maintaining support plans for customers in the service. You'll establish and maintain effective relationships with colleagues across the Group and central departments, along with client's families, carers and advocates.

You should have excellent interpersonal skills; an understanding of the causes and issues faced by homeless people and socially excluded groups, as well as the ability to deal with challenging situations and individuals with a range of needs. You'll have the ability to deal with people in a patient and respectful manner and you must be capable of working alone as well as being part of a team and establish and maintain effective professional relationships.

We are looking for an excellent communicator and negotiator who is able to connect with people from all backgrounds and to support the development of accommodation-based services and community hubs.

This is a challenging but rewarding role, so we are hoping to find resilient people who can see this as more than a job - this is a chance to make a real difference, that will not only enrich someone else's life but also yours. If you are up for a new challenge or want to develop your existing skills, then we would love to hear from you.
