Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?
As a charitable registered provider of short-term social housing operating in Southend-on-Sea, we believe everyone should have a home of their own. At times individuals may require support from HARP and other agencies to maintain a tenancy and avoid a return to homelessness.
We currently manage 236 bed spaces in our emergency and short-term accommodation, employ over 100 full and part time staff, and supported by a number of volunteers.
Are you a motivated and passionate individual looking to make a real difference in your local community? Are you also available at the weekends on a rota basis to put your skills to good use helping others less fortunate? If so, we would love you to join our housing management team as a Housing Project Worker.
The ideal candidate will have:
The demonstrable ability to work within a highly effective, person centred accommodation service for residents, some with complex needs.
Experience of holistic assessment of need, support and risk, and multi-agency casework planning.
Organised, adaptable, and an excellent communicator.
Enthusiastic about working in a psychologically informed environment, and creative in your approach to service delivery.
Resilient in, and motivated by, a constantly changing and busy environment.
A good understanding of the regulatory and financial environment within which accommodation based support operates is essential.
For full details please download the job description above.

HARP will provide you with support and training to carry out your role effectively, and to develop your career. Our benefits package includes 25 days’ annual leave, plus Bank Holidays, a contributory pension scheme through The People’s Pension and a Death in Service Benefit.
