Locations: Southwark, Lewisham, Hackney, Shepherd's Bush

Our clients ambition is to end homelessness and they are working hard to reverse the increase in people sleeping rough in England. In the areas where they work, they aim to halve the number of people sleeping rough by 2021.

One of their services focuses on helping people who are new to rough sleeping on the streets of London. The service works to help them off the streets quickly and through their assessment hubs, help them find alternative accommodation so that they don't have to rough sleep for a second night.

Assessment and Reconnection Workers carry out new rough sleeper client assessments and quickly help to reconnect them with supported networks in their home area or where they have a proven link. These additional roles have been created as a result of recently announced additional government funding, to boost the immediate support available to people living on the streets.

To fill them, they are looking for people that have talent and who share their ambition. They are seeking candidates with some experience of dealing directly with the public and/or customers in a busy service environment and experience of working effectively with others to get things done.

Candidates will also need to have some understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerably housed people and the difficulties they experience in accessing services.

In return, you can look forward to benefits including a pension scheme and a whole range of initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. On top of that, they'll give you all the support you need to develop your skills and career.
