Unseen is a UK charity with its head office in Bristol. We provide safehouses and support in the community for survivors of trafficking and modern slavery and operate the 24/7 UK wide Modern Slavery & Exploitation Helpline. We also work with individuals, communities, business, governments, other charities and statutory agencies to end slavery for good.
Accommodation Support Officers (ASOs) work at Unseen’s safe houses; these are accommodation services for men and women who have been identified as victims of human trafficking and modern slavery.
The purpose of the ASO role is to ensure all health and safety requirements in the safe house are met on a day to day basis and that all house protocols and policies are adhered to. ASOs will also ensure the safety and security of service users by welcoming and settling new residents, promoting awareness of health and safety, helping clients to manage risk and supporting survivors to engage with support plans and work towards their goals. ASOs will work to create a friendly and supportive environment for residents with opportunities to instigate communal activities with residents.
The Accommodation Support Officer role will be working as part of Unseen’s friendly and committed Support Services Team that provides high quality support services to clients living both in safe house accommodation and in the community. You will work closely with the Support Services Managers and caseworkers to deliver services in line with best practice and achieve positive outcomes for clients.
