2x Assessment Workers (EU Settled Status) – Routes Homes Service

Shepherd’s Bush and South Norwood, with travel across London

£28,908 - £32,398 pa

Fixed term contract until 31 March 2020 / Full time (37.5 hours per week)

At St Mungo’s our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions.  As a homelessness charity and housing association our clients are at the heart of what we do.

The Routes Home Service aims to rapidly intervene to prevent and support non-UK nationals from sleeping rough. Routes Home is a service set up to ensure as many non-UK national rough sleepers as possible receive a rapid response, a full assessment of their needs and an offer of help to move away from rough sleeping. We believe that rough sleeping is harmful and dangerous and are committed to ensuring that no one need sleep rough in London.

We are looking for inspirational, committed individuals who have a genuine desire to support people to rebuild their lives.

As an EUSS Assessment Worker, you will provide high-quality support, information and advice to European rough sleepers, informing them about their entitlement for pre-settled and settled status in the UK, and supporting people to make these applications to an OISC level 1 (EUSS) level. You will be completing comprehensive assessments, raising awareness and empowering people to make informed decisions about their options to support them to move away from rough sleeping. This will involve working closely with street outreach services, NSNO hubs and people living in supported accommodation.

The role will be based in our accommodation in South Norwood and in Shepherds Bush but as a pan-London service, you will be expected to travel across London. Flexibility is also required, although the core hours are Monday – Friday, you will be expected to support outreach teams on their shifts which tend to be early morning and late evening.

To succeed in these highly rewarding roles you will have an excellent understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerably housed people – you may have had personal experience of homelessness yourself. You will also have a sound understanding of the support needs of people with irregular migration status’ and/or European nationals, and professional boundary issues. Training and registration will be provided for OISC level 1 (EUSS).

If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless, we encourage you to apply.

Please ensure that you read the comprehensive job description and person specification for the role. When applying please address the person specification, clearly setting out how you meet the requirements for the role.
