Why work for The Bridge? There are a hundred reasons.
Maybe you’ve known someone suffer without help, or perhaps you’re tired of seeing the same new stories about homelessness? Join us and you can help change lives.
Everyone at The Bridge has heaps of energy and positivity, and we are lucky to say we start every day knowing we can make a difference to local people.
We are a small charity, but we’re also a close-knit family that’s organised, focussed, and driven.
There are loads of great benefits to working for The Bridge, such as the extra holiday days or the flexible working. However, these benefits are not why you join in the first place... Or why you stay. From day one you’ll receive all the training you need. Here, helping you develop your career and skills is a top priority. We value you, partly because it’s the right thing to do, but also because it really helps you achieve what you came to The Bridge for: changing other people’s lives for the better.
Working as an Accommodation Advisor, you will work in a fast paced and dynamic environment, being able to meet stringent KPI’s. Working in partnership with the Prison and Probation Service, you will work with a caseload of adult males in custody and on probation in the community to provide advice and support for their housing needs. You’ll carry out initial assessments to understand individual needs and agree a tailored action plan. This could be providing support to sustain or end a tenancy, find accommodation or basic budgeting advice and liaison with other key agencies. You’ll provide support face to face with individuals and groups.
As a valued employee, you will receive day to day support during your time at The Bridge, but alongside this you will have regular supervisions with your line manager in order to ensure you are fully equipped to provide the high standard of support that your clients deserve.
