As a Supported Accommodation Manager, you will facilitate residents to move into our accommodation and live in a place of safety and stability. You will help residents to progress towards independent living and gain the life skills to sustain this.
Residents often arrive with more than just a housing problem and you will help them to address these problems during their stay. This will involve liaising and working closely with other voluntary and statutory agencies.
You will also ensure that the properties are kept to a good standard as well as carrying out basic financial and administration functions in the operation of the house.
The exact hours and locations of your work will vary, based on the needs of the organisation. You must be flexible, and some evening and weekend work will be required. You will also be expected to participate in the on-call system to provide emergency cover (by telephone or at the premises) outside of normal working hours.
We're looking for someone who shares our core values:
- Honesty, Integrity, Equality, and Dignity.
- You should have previous experience of working with vulnerable adults, along with a knowledge and appreciation of the many complex issues surrounding homelessness.
- You should have experience working in or managing supported accommodation or a similar residential setting, current knowledge of housing, community care and benefits legislation, and an strong awareness of mental health, drug and alcohol issues.
- Importantly, we’re looking for someone who has a real passion for making a difference to the lives of some of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of society.
