Linc-Cymru is a Registered Social Landlord operating across several local authority areas in South Wales, providing good quality social housing to local communities. Linc believes that every person has a right to enjoy life in their own way, providing they do not adversely affect the lives of those living and working around them. We work with partner agencies and empower our residents to build safer, stronger communities, making our neighbourhoods a good place to live.

Role of the Community Empowerment Officer...

The Community Empowerment Officer will work with Linc’s tenants to assist them to sustain their tenancies, empowering them to build on their strengths, providing the basis for long-term sustained change.

What Skills Do You Need To Have...

You will have experience of working with individuals with different support needs, partnership working and liaising with specialist support services. You will also be experienced in assessing an individual’s support needs, agreeing outcomes and working with others to achieve goals.

Your ability to be empathetic and pragmatic is key. You should be flexible and innovative. This is a relatively new area of work for Linc so you will have an opportunity to help develop the service further.

A team player, you must be able to interact with colleagues, tenants and external agencies and be IT literate including using Microsoft Office packages.  You will need to drive for Linc business purposes and have access to a vehicle insured for business use.

A DBS check is required for this role.
