It’s a passion, not just a job

Our great
people help make us the best and through their true passion, commitment and
enthusiasm, deliver aspirational support to our clients every day. 

We are
looking for an energised and passionate Project Worker like you (known
internally by us as a Support Co-ordinator – Level 3) You’ll join our
great team which provides support in Jupiter House Foyer (JHF) which
is an accommodation service based in Hayes Middlesex and home
to vulnerable young people age 16 years to 25 years and homeless
families.

As Lead
Support Worker you will manage a caseload of clients, working closely with
external agencies and our amazing team of Support Workers in delivering person
centred support where no two days are the same. We know that one size doesn’t
fit all, so our clients lead their own support every step of the way. Together
you will really make a difference, empowering our clients to achieve their
goals and aspirations as outlined in their support plans and develop the
independent living skills they need to successfully move on with a positive
future.

You will support
with the submission of housing benefit claims and ensure that it is checked and
received on the individual's rent account.  Each month you will
manage the health and safety inspection and recording of meter readings for gas
and electricity and feeding them in for payment. You will also be required to
ensure the speedy clearance of Void Properties, so that we can help our next
client settle in quickly.  

You will
help shape our services, undertake risk assessments, support planning, goal
setting and regular reviews.  You’ll also guide and allocate tasks to our
Support Workers too.  It’s really important to us that you have time to
what you are really passionate about; making a real difference to our clients
lives.  So to free up your time, you’ll be given the latest IT kit, which
could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online
integrated IT system which means that you don’t have to be in the office as you
can complete support plans on the go.

difference to thousands of people lives every single day.

A bit about you

We want people like you, who strongly believe that providing support is
more than just a job and can make every client feel valued. To flourish in the
role, you will be a like-minded dedicated person who can demonstrate
compassion, empathy and creativity in your approach and use your unique skills
in enabling clients to reach their full pot...
