The post: Rock Trust are delighted to be expanding our successful Housing First for Youth and Housing Support services into Fife. The Project Worker role provides an opportunity to be part of this innovative venture, based on well-researched methods used across the world. These services will support homeless and/or care experienced young people to transition to permanent, independent accommodation.
The post holder will be expected to:
• Build trusting, lasting relationships with young people
• Support young people to manage and thrive in their new home
• Provide flexible, person centered, strengths-based support for as long as is required
• Adopt a ‘whatever it takes’ and rights based approach
• Work in a psychologically and trauma informed manner
• Promote and share evaluation, learning and best practice
Project workers will work across the Fife local authority area, and as such access to a car and a full driving license are essential.
Who we are
Rock Trust is Scotland’s leading youth specific homelessness charity. We work with young people aged 16-25 who are at risk of, or who are experiencing homelessness. Our aim is to end youth homelessness in Scotland by ensuring that every young person has access to expert youth specific services to assist them to avoid, survive and move on from homelessness.
Rock Trust holds the gold award from Investors in People. We are committed to making Rock Trust a fantastic place to work. We provide a range of enhanced benefits for staff, including 25 days annual leave and 10 public holidays, an 8% employer contribution pension scheme, life assurance scheme, employee rewards and enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption leave. A full list of our benefits is available on our website.
We actively support the ability to work flexibly and remotely, and all staff are provided with the ICT kit and home set-ups needed to minimise travel and promote a work-life balance.
We are an equal opportunity employer, with the Silver Charter from LGBT Youth Scotland and are signed up to the DWP’s Disability Confident scheme. We encourage applications from all parts of the community.
Rock Trust has four core values; Safety, Positivity, Respect and Fairness. If you hold these values and are passionate about supporting young people to achieve their full potential and move on from homelessness, then please get in touch.
Closing date: Monday 7th December 2020 - 9am.
