We are recruiting a full time Support Worker to work in our Guildford supported housing project. The role involves supporting young people who live in the project to develop socially, personally and spiritually in order that they may grow in confidence and independence.
You will be required to ensure that all residents receive an appropriate level of care and support that is tailored to their needs; that they work towards positive health and well-being outcomes and that they have support to access training, voluntary work and employment.
Experience working with a similar client group and an understanding of the needs and challenges posed by these young people is essential. Experience delivering group work is desirable. You will need to keep a current knowledge of housing benefits and welfare benefits for young people and significant changes to housing law.
We are particularly interested to hear from applicants with knowledge of, or experience of working with unaccompanied asylum seeking children and young people.
This role will include working roughly one evening per week and some working at the weekends however this is dependent on need and therefore subject to change.
