One of the largest housing associations in Devon is recruiting for a Support Worker to provide person centred support and enablement to service users with mental health and complex needs within their service in Dawlish.



The Service


This Support Worker role is based within a supported housing service, which provides housing support to tenants with complex needs, including mental health and substance misuse.

The service is based within a 3 bed property with a maximum of 3 tenants.



The Role


The focus of this Support Worker role is to support and enable service users towards independent living, whilst managing and sustaining their tenancy.


Tasks and responsibilities will include:



  • Ensuring service users have taken medication appropriately

  • Supporting with independent living skills, such as budgeting and maximising benefits

  • Providing tenancy related support

  • Work with residents on their underlying support needs, such as mental health and substance misuse

  • Ensure service users maintain contact with their drug and alcohol workers



The Candidate


To be considered for this Support Worker role you will require previous experience working within supported housing, ideally with complex needs service users and a knowledge of substance misuse and homelessness.


A driver with access to a vehicle is preferable, but not essential.


Due to the vulnerable nature of clients you will be supporting in this role, to apply you will require an enhanced DBS on the update service.



The Contract


This is a temporary Support Worker vacancy on an initial 6 week contract, covering the recruitment process for a permanent member of staff, meaning there is a chance the role could be extended, or made permanent.


The role is part time, working 22.5 hours per week over three days, which are flexible.



Referral Bonus


If this Housing Support Worker role is not suitable for yourself, but you know someone who may be interested, please pass on their details, or forward these details to them.
