Are you passionate about making a real difference to people’s lives? Watford Community Housing and Hertfordshire County Council are looking to recruit a Family Intervention Worker. This role is jointly funded by both these organisations and is based at friendly offices in South Oxhey, Hertfordshire. This is a fixed-term contract until 31st March 2025.

 

You will be providing direct support in the homes of families with children with multiple and complex needs.  An empathetic, customer-focused and sensitive approach is essential.

 

You will help these families to achieve better outcomes, live in a safe environment and sustain their tenancy, as well as helping to support them with their general wellbeing.

 

You will be expected to manage a busy caseload and to work with tact and in a non-judgemental and positive manner. You will need to keep accurate and confidential records, demonstrate resilience and problem-solving skills, and be confident working on your own.

 

Experience of working with families in a customer-facing role and experience of a multi-agency approach will be essential, as will a full driving licence and access to a car with business insurance. A satisfactory DBS check at enhanced level is also required.

 

What can we offer you?

We know that people are our most valuable assets, so we offer a range of benefits including 28 days’ annual leave pro rata, an employer pension contribution of up to 11%, development opportunities and access to a comprehensive employee rewards scheme.
