Details of Role: 

We are excited to be recruiting into our High Support team in a busy but rewarding city centre-based housing project for vulnerable young people. If you have a desire to help young people and have excellent support and housing management skills and experience, we want to hear from you.

Please find full details of how to apply via our website in the advert below. The deadline for application submissions is at 23:59 on Monday 08 July 2024.

We are striving to better represent the young people we support and therefore are particularly keen to increase applications from minoritized ethnic groups and male candidates as they are currently under-represented in our organisation. We also encourage applications from people with relevant lived experience. 

If you need an adjustment to be made to any part of the recruitment process, please let us know as soon as possible. 

Who are we?
We are a leading youth homelessness charity based in the Southwest, working with over 1,500 young people. At 1625ip we are driven by Social Justice and Passion: we strive to do something that matters and take pride in seeing the results of our work in social outcomes and improving young people’s lives.

What you will be doing:

  • By engaging young people with confidence and passion, you will show you love being around them and working with them.
  • By being empathetic, you will show you truly understand the complex needs of young people.
  • Tapping into your skills of working with a diverse caseload, you will help young people develop and reach their goals and aspirations.
  • By working well in a fast-paced environment, you will successfully juggle the demands of a busy caseload and providing on-going support for young people.
  • Ensuring the safety, security, and wellbeing of young people, yourself, and colleagues.
  • By being well organised, efficient, and effective you will support the whole team in a range of housing management functions, including the promotion and facilitation of a positive rent culture.

You will participate in the team rolling rota, with earliest start at 7am and latest finish at 10pm, one weekend on and three weekends off in a four-week period. You will be in the High Support Team and your line manager will be the St Georges House Manager.

At 1625ip we are led by our Competency Development Framework. This connects our values to our behaviours in everything we do and gives us the tools to develop. The framework ensures our recruitment is better informed, applications and interviews are behaviourally based, and job profiles are developed on the ‘how’ of a job. 

If you have transferrable skills and you are interested in this role, but you are worried about the application process, please get in touch with us. We encourage you to have an informal chat with the recruiting manager to discuss how your personal or professional experience and skills could be transferred to this role. Details of how you can do that are further down in this advert.
