What is special about this opportunity?

To be a great Floating Support Worker, you will need previous experience working with people with memory loss or dementia. A good understanding of housing related support and welfare benefits or awareness of issues faced by people at risk of homelessness would be extremely useful in the role. You will be sensitive and empathetic to provide the best support and advise our clients about their future.

Our team works to encourage the people we support to deal with issues that may threaten their homes including improving budgeting skills, addressing debts, maximising income through appropriate benefits, life skills and household management, accessing support with alcohol or substance misuse, mental and physical health and anti-social behaviour. Our Floating Support team works together to make sure the people we support are comfortable through understanding the issues they are facing and through liaising with their families and dealing with sometimes difficult behaviour brought on by dementia or memory loss.

As part of a growing organisation there are endless opportunities for training, career development and progression. Surrounded by an experienced team, this truly is an exciting opportunity for you to develop your career within the support sector. You will contribute to the success of the Pobl Group, which is moving from strength to strength see www.poblgroup.co.uk.

This is a permanent post. Actual salary for this role based on 26 hrs per week will be £13,466

For this role you will require an Enhanced DBS check, which we pay for.

How can I make a difference?

The role will be varied and involve working with vulnerable people in their homes or temporary accommodation to prevent homelessness and develop skills needed to maintain their tenancies, maintain their health and wellbeing, progress to independent living and make appropriate choices.
