Duration: Full Time 35 hrs per week, 12 month fix term contract
Do you have passion for your work, a commitment to excellence and a desire to support some of the most vulnerable and excluded people in our communities? Could you support us to make positive lasting changes in people’s lives?
Providence Row’s Advice & Support service works with rough sleepers and those at risk of homelessness in the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and the City of London.
Our service is on the front line of both homelessness prevention and the local response to rough sleeping. Beginning with the volunteer led triage assessment process that begins in our Welcome Area, clients are allocated according to specialisms in the team covering preventative work and support for rough sleepers. The main emphasis in the service is to do everything possible to move people into appropriate accommodation in a borough, community or country in which they have rights and entitlements to services. This work is often done in partnership with other organisations, some of which are funded to help people move away from a life on the streets or which may operate in other sectors such as health.
The ideal candidate
Passionate about providing quality support to some of the most vulnerable and excluded people in East London, you will have the drive and ambition to support your team to make positive lasting changes in people’s lives.
You have experience of delivering specialist support to vulnerable adults who have experienced homelessness. With experience in service delivery and a strong understanding of how other factors such as rough sleeping and mental health issues affect an individual’s confidence and perceived ability to progress, you will live out our values in your approach to your work.
You utilise your great organisational and time management skills to ensure a smooth running of service. You are an excellent communicator and can create positive working relationships with a wide range of people.
The role of the City Hub Advisor is to work with the City of London Outreach Team in our new expanded assessment hub model and to engage with and support people who are sleeping rough.
