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 226 bed spaces in our emergency and short-term accommodation, employ over 90 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. 


To be considered for this role you will need:

  • 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.

  • To be organised, adaptable, and an excellent communicator.

  • Enthusiasm for working in a psychologically informed environment, and you will be creative in your approach to service delivery. 

  • To be 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.

For full details please download the job description above.

For further information and an informal chat about the positions please contact Matt Pettitt, Team Manager, on 01702 619089.

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. HARP will make a contribution to the pension and you will be required to make a contribution.
