As a Project Worker you will play an active role in delivering our support service to vulnerable adults with mental health and some learning difficulties in Luton.

 

 

 

 

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:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


  • Do you have experience of working in a community-based support role and knowledge of best practice for the provision of support for vulnerable people?

  • Do you have good IT skills and the ability to manage a complex caseload?

  • Are you a strong communicator with excellent people skills?


  •  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If so, this is the perfect role for you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

We currently have a great opportunity for a Project Worker to join us on a 12-month Fixed Term, full-time basis.
