We are seeking a Project Worker to make a real difference to the lives of our clients. We support clients in our shared accommodation across Birmingham to live a more independent lifestyle. The successful applicant must be willing to travel to other areas for training, duty and meetings across our Birmingham Floating Support Service. If you want to make a real difference in people’s lives, this is a rewarding opportunity to come and work within an established and experienced team.

The role of Project Worker will include:

  • Providing support with housing related issues such as evictions, homelessness, re-settlement and applying for accommodation via social/private landlords
  • Helping with budgeting and transitioning to new tenancies
  • Regular key working and support planning sessions to ensure relevant support is provided, enabling our clients to maximise their own potential and prompt a level of independence
  • Assessing clients’ needs, writing and updating records
  • Working with statutory and non-statutory agencies on behalf of the clients, actively encouraging choice and involvement, or acting as an advocate when required

Skills and experiences:

  • The ability to work on your own initiative as you will be required to source innovative solutions to problems that allow clients’ independence to be enhanced
  • Previous experience of working with challenging behavior and clients with mental health and/or complex needs
  • A good working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel, and the ability to keep accurate records
  • Travel is an essential requirement of the role; therefore a full, current driving licence and access to your own vehicle is desirable

Why work for us?

We support vulnerable people to live as independently as possible, by building their confidence and skills to realise their potential.

We are a national organisation but we think locally. We support people through supported housing, move-on accommodation, CQC registered services, floating support and telecare services. We specialise in services for young people, homeless families and individuals, people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities, people with mental health needs and older people.
