What is special about this opportunity?

To be a great Floating Support Worker, you don’t always need previous experience or qualifications. 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.

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 or entering employment, life skills and household management, accessing support with alcohol or substance misuse, mental and physical health and anti-social behaviour.

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 12-months temporary post at 37 hours a week.

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, change negative behaviour, maintain their health and wellbeing, progress to independent living and make appropriate choices.

You will:

* Work with people to truly make a difference in their life
* Use your skills and talents to engage with people
* Support people to achieve their potential
* Develop your networking skills by working in partnership with external agencies
