Clean Slate Training & Employment is a fast-growing social enterprise, facing up to the challenge of a spiralling cost-of-living crisis for hard-pressed households across the country. Last year, we enabled 3,000 people to share around £1.75 million by helping them increase their income and reduce expenditure. Now we want to grow our brilliant team of support workers. You don’t need experience in helping people with their housing needs, but if you are willing to learn and have a natural ability to engage and inspire others, even when they’re struggling most, you’re just who we’re looking for.
Our Reach Housing Support Worker is seconded to Developing Health and Independence (DHI) to deliver housing related advice and support to service users referred to the Reach Housing Advice & Support Service, who are experiencing difficulties in securing and sustaining their homes and living independently within the community.
To succeed, you will be a great communicator with excellent advocacy skills. You will have experience or willingness to learn of working innovatively and effectively with people who are socially excluded and/or in housing need. You must be a competent user of Office packages and web-based facilities, and an organised administrator. It would be helpful if you have an understanding of discrimination, equality and diversity issues, including those not set out in law such as the ‘poverty premium’. The ability to speak Bengali, Polish, Romanian, Ukrainian or the language of another group affected by financial and digital exclusion would be an advantage. There will be the possibility of additional hours working in Support Work for Clean Slate, delivering financial and employment support for clients over the phone or in Quids In Centres. Sharing our values is essential. Can you join us in this promise to the parts of our community experiencing hardship: cleanslateltd.co.uk/our-promise
Your home must be in the UK as Clean Slate is not able to take on the administration of tax etc in jurisdictions outside the UK. Likewise you must already have the right to work in the UK as Clean Slate is not in a position to sponsor applicants to gain the right to work here.
The rate of pay for this job is £23,750 per year pro rata'd according to the numbers of hours you work per week, although this salary is under review. Other staff benefits include a company sick pay scheme, an incremental holiday scheme, access to mental and emotional health support via our employee assistance programme and opportunities to further develop your skills, including by our own excellent in-house training. Our culture is open and we encourage everyone to contribute to the direction of the organisation. If this sounds like a role where you could flourish, please apply by the end of Friday 17th Feb 2023.
