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

HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average, we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately to live independently in the community.

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 are supported by a number of volunteers.

To be considered for this role you will need to have experience of:

  • Line management

  • Supporting people with complex needs and those in recovery from substance misuse

  • Managing a small caseload of clients

  • Carrying out regular supervision and performance reviews to ensure good practice

  • Assisting the Team Manager in ensuring the properties are safe and well maintained

You will be joining a large and diverse housing team. The nature of working within a Complex Needs environment can be challenging so the Coordinator will need to show they have good conflict resolution techniques and lead by example within the team when resolving difficult situations.

Our starting benefits package includes 25 days annual leave, plus Bank Holidays, a contributory pension scheme through The People’s Pension.  HARP will make a contribution to the pension and you will also be required to make a contribution.
