Homelessness Transitions Officer
Hours: 37 hours per week
Contract: Fixed Term until 31st December 2018
Salary: Up to £22,171
The Bridge and Charnwood Borough Council are leading on a DCLG funded project to reduce rough sleeping across Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland. This is an innovative, multi-agency programme which will provide a range of interventions to individuals who have been identified as sleeping rough, or at risk of sleeping rough.
We require an enthusiastic and committed individual who have the necessary experience and skills to deliver this programme. We are looking for a candidate who has an extensive understanding of homelessness, including the complex needs of rough sleepers. The candidate will be able to work in a fast paced environment, able to embrace time pressures and will also need experience of working with vulnerable people facing multiple barriers.
The post holder will be part of a team of 4 Housing Transitions Officers implementing ‘assertive outreach’ to provide a more dynamic and responsive offer to rough sleepers, or those at risk of rough sleeping. This post will be based in Leicestershire and Rutland, although there will be some overlap and join up with city colleagues, where necessary.
