Job Title: Tenancy Sustainment Worker
Application Closing Date: Friday 14 June
Hours: 36 per week
Salary: £23,021 to £25,030 per annum
Job category/type: Housing
ONLY AVAILABLE TO APPLICANTS WHO ARE REGISTERED HOMELESS
This role is part of the Naumann Initiative. It is only open to individuals who are currently registered homeless. The successful applicant will also be given a tenancy with Kingdom, full training to carry out the role and support to make the transition from being homeless to having their own home with us.
About the Role
We are looking for someone to join our Housing team to help some of our tenants make the transition from being homeless into stable accommodation with us. We believe the best person to do that is someone who has personally experienced homelessness.
Help to Apply
If you need help applying for the role, you can come along to our SUPPORT DAY where Kingdom staff will be able to tell you more about us and the role and to help you complete your application. We’ll recompense you any travel costs you incur getting there. The day is on:
- Wednesday 29 May, 1pm – 4pm, Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline
You don’t need to have formal qualifications or experience of doing this type of work.
We want someone who:
- Is registered homeless at the time of application
- Has a genuine passion for supporting others who are homeless
- Can empathise with other people and support them without judgement or allowing the relationship to develop beyond the professional
- Is able to think laterally and solve problems
- Has a good level of literacy and numeracy
- Has (or is able to gain) a full driving licence
As you will be supporting vulnerable people, you will need to complete a satisfactory Standard Disclosure Scotland check. Having a criminal record will not necessarily exclude you from applying but we would need to carry out a risk assessment to evaluate whether it would impact your ability to carry out the role.
As well as the pay and benefits that come with all our jobs, we will give you a tenancy with Kingdom, full training, support to help you make the transition from homelessness and any other support to help you be successful in the role. We will consider any flexible working arrangements that will allow you to have a good work life balance.
