We currently have a fantastic opportunity for Support Workers to join our support and employability team in Gloucestershire.

You will enable them to gain a wide range of interpersonal and practical skills by supporting, motivating, inspiring and teaching.
You will be a voice for our young people by building positive relationships whilst encouraging them to speak up for themselves regardless of background, enhancing their quality of life, particularly those with complex issues including social isolation and alienation, trauma, lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem.
You will have the ability to deal effectively with support plans, key work, risk assessments, repairs, voids, lettings and contractors and demonstrate knowledge and competency in all areas of housing management, including recent legislative developments and income management.
The successful candidate will have previous experience supporting young people and adults including housing advice, advocacy work or residential work. You will also have experience managing support plans, writing and reviewing risk assessments and working in a multidisciplinary team.
