The Housing First programme aims to support people with long histories of homelessness to access a permanent home and to receive the support they need to remain there.
In West Lothian the project is operating as a Public Social Partnership, funded by West Lothian Alcohol and Drug Partnership, and delivered in partnership with the housing and resettlement team within West Lothian Council.
We are looking for a skilled and committed key worker to join our support team. Caseloads are intentionally small and the emphasis is on forming relationships with those who access the service, supporting them unconditionally, and coordinating other specialist support where required.
The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, be patient and tolerant, creative, reflective, flexible and willing to try new ways of working. You should also have the ability to demonstrate Cyrenians values of compassion, respect, integrity and innovation in the work that you do.
This role is initially funded to 31st March 2021.
CVs will not be accepted.
Closing date is 12 noon on Monday 20th July 2020
Interviews will be held on Friday 24th July 2020 (via zoom video call)
