GreenSquare Group is a significant housing association providing a wide range of homes and services across the region. The service provides community based support to residents in Gloucester, Tewkesbury and the Forest of Dean. The service supports clients to achieve and maintain independence with regard to their housing needs and to improve their quality of life.

We are currently recruiting for Support Assistants to join our team in Gloucestershire.  You will need to have an understanding of support work, preferably with an understanding of housing issues and of the issues facing vulnerable people.

Staff will receive and process referrals on behalf of vulnerable adults, carry out an assessment of their needs and develop a support plan to address them, in conjunction with the client. Support will include acting as the first point of contact for clients to achieve a secure housing environment, reduce social isolation and promote integration into the community.

If you are looking for a role which allows you to make a real difference to people’s quality of life and increase and promote their independence, then this is the job for you. You will have previous experience of providing a high quality, client-focussed service to vulnerable people in challenging environments and have the flexibility and responsive approach required for this type of role. Experience of welfare benefits, group work and a working knowledge of community languages are also desirable

Due to the nature of this role, access to your own transport is essential.
