As a Support Worker you will play an active role in delivering our support service to young people. You’ll primarily be working with young people aged 16 to 25 in Hertford, preparing to live independently once they leave the project.





About us





We’re one of the UK’s leading housing associations, a member of the G15 group of London’s largest housing associations, with 34,000 homes and 1,200 employees in London and the Home Counties.



We are inspired by the benefits of a diverse workforce. We encourage diversity and inclusion at all levels of our organisation and are fully committed to equality of opportunity. We have been voted a Sunday Times top 100 Best Company to Work for, investing care, time and resources in our people.





Our purpose





Our purpose at Catalyst is to provide ‘homes people love’. That means everything from creating and maintaining great homes, to delivering excellent service to customers every day. We offer a wide range of housing solutions and opportunities for our diverse range of customer needs and requirements including, rent, part ownership or purchase. By doing so, we build more than homes – we build communities.





What we’re looking for:






  • Previous experience of working in a similar role or the passion and desire to work with vulnerable and complex young people.

  • Good IT skills and the ability to manage a complex caseload.

  • A strong communicator with excellent people skills.





If so, this is the perfect role for you!





We currently have a great opportunity for a Support Worker to join us on a permanent basis.





Do you have what it takes?





To succeed in your role as a Support Worker, you will:






  • Work closely with your Senior Project Worker and a range of external agencies in engaging young people in their support programme and achieving their goals.

  • Plan and deliver fun and meaningful activities for young people living at the project, whilst adhering to safeguarding and health and safety procedures.

  • Keep the project clean and tidy and closely monitor rent accounts and follow the projects arrears procedure.

  • Bring a discreet and sensitive approach with strong professional boundaries and be able to confidently deal with tense and difficult situations.

  • Commit to working overnight and unsociable hours on a rota basis.

  • Have an understanding of safeguarding and knowledge of the benefit system (not essential).







The UK has a housing problem which affects every one of us, because housing is the foundation of the society we live in. Catalyst is part of the solution and you could be too!



This role is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
