We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with the right values to join our service assisting and supporting vulnerable homeless people to achieve better lives.

The successful candidate will be expected to complement the work of our support teams by ensuring the security of the building through observation and checks, maintaining health, safety and hygiene standards and following procedures such as for financial transactions, admissions and leavers, housing benefit, incident reports and building repairs reports.

You should have sound literacy and numeracy skills and experience of dealing with challenging behaviour. Other essentials include: experience of team working; good verbal communication; the ability to interact with people in an appropriate and positive way; and, above all, the determination to make a difference in the lives of our service users.

The service accommodates and supports people aged 16 and over who are homeless. Housing Assistants manage the accommodated buildings 24/7 and provide a contact point for service users who may need some assistance or guidance where required, this involves lone working.

Typical shifts are between 07:45 – 15:15 and 14:45 – 22:15 over a three week rolling rota.

If successful, you will be required to register with the Scottish Social Services Council within 6 months of your start date. After registration, there is a requirement to be qualified and to maintain professional learning.
