Permanent Contract
£18,252 - £19,738 per annum (dependent on experience)

Notting Hill Genesis are actively recruiting for an experienced Project Worker to work across a number of their supported housing schemes located in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

Notting Hill Genesis is one of the largest providers of housing related support to single homeless people within Suffolk. We have recently undergone an ambitious change programme within several of our schemes across the county. The aim of the new services is to ensure our customers achieve their goals and aspirations through the support, encouragement and guidance of our staff.

This is an exciting time to join Notting Hill Genesis as we are recruiting to several jobs in the Suffolk area. Located across a number of our services in Bury St Edmunds, the Project Worker will be responsible for delivering person-centred services. The schemes are accommodation based environments that support single homeless people who may have experienced drug, alcohol, substance misuse problems, and/or have varying support needs.

The primary focus of our schemes is to support clients in a range of areas, including finding employment, recovery from addiction, and building stability through a range of social activities. A successful outcome is achieved when our customers can move on to more suitable long-term accommodation, appropriate to their needs.

This is a level two position so previous supported housing or Hostel experience is desirable for this role as you will be supporting single homeless people that can display challenging behavior and you are needed to go in and hit the ground running. Less experienced candidates may also be considered.
You may be required to lone work and you will need to use your own initiative so we need a strong willed and confident individual. We want to find motivational individual's that have a genuine interest working with vulnerable people and delivering a person-centred service.

Hours will be 39 hours a week, over a rota basis. You will be required to work some weekends

Please see the Role Profile for further details. You can request this from our Recruitment Partner - Retinue Solutions.

For further information or an informal conversation regarding the role please contact Jennifer Cole on 07382 798499 or email J.Cole@retinue-solutions.com

You will need to supply your CV and a Supporting Statement in order to apply. Your Supporting Statement must cover the requirements in the Role Profile (detailing your suitability for the role). This can be found on the Notting Hill Genesis website or you can request a copy to complete your application.
