30 Hours per week
£22,640 per annum (pro rata)
£18,112 per annum (actual)
We are recruiting a project worker to work alongside our wider housing team to provide effective day to day management of our community accommodation project for vulnerable young people aged 16-25 years.
The role includes delivering one to one sessions and groups work sessions to assist residents to develop personally and socially in order that they grow in confidence and move towards independence.
You will carry a case load of young people and work to engage them in effective support planning, working towards tailored goals so they can work towards positive outcomes.
You must have experience working with young people, particularly those considered vulnerable or with multiple and complex needs, and be able to de-escalate volatile situations and to manage challenging behavior appropriately.
You should have the ability to engage, motivate, inspire and empower young people; particularly working within a Psychologically Informed Environment (PIE) or Trauma Informed approach.
The role involves working on a rolling Rota, pattern which includes evenings and 2 weekends a month. Shift times are 7am – 3pm, and 12pm – 8pm.
The role will include supporting with the day-to-day running of the service, and engaging the young people who live within the project and supporting them to develop socially, personally and emotionally in order that they may grow in confidence and independence.
Part of the role may include lone working and will require someone competent and confident when working alone, and somebody who is able to deal with challenging behavior appropriately. Experience working with a similar client group and an understanding of the needs and challenges posed by these young people is essential.
The position comes with excellent benefits, including 27 days annual leave per annum (plus bank holidays), a company sick pay scheme, a life assurance policy of 2x your annual salary, a health and wellbeing cash plan, and a cycle to work scheme.
