Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?

Based at HARP’s Bradbury Centre and providing floating support across Southend-on-Sea; the Intensive Support Team is a new service and focuses on helping people who are (or have been) rough sleeping. Our aim is to help them off the streets (or out of temporary accommodation) quickly and, through our comprehensive assessment service, help them find alternative more permanent accommodation where they will remain supported by the same team.

This role will be to carry out comprehensive assessments for new service users, helping to accommodate them as quickly as possible.

Alternatively, where more appropriate, you will help to reconnect clients to places where they have a proven connection. Each service user will have personalised case-management support and practical action plans, created by them with your support.

To be considered for this role, you will need the demonstrable ability to work within a highly effective, person-centred service for service users, some with complex needs. Your experience must include the holistic assessment of need, support and risk, and multi-agency casework planning.

A Full Driving Licence is desirable.

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.

Closing Date: Monday 29th November 2021 midday
