Job Description:

Do you want to support people to move away from homelessness and into their own accommodation?

As an Outreach Worker you will engage with people on the streets who are rough sleeping with the primary aim of supporting their transition from the streets into short term, temporary accommodation. You will then identify suitable housing options and facilitate move on into longer term accommodation.

You will join our existing Move On & Outreach Teams based in Eastbourne, but you will also provide cover in the Hastings and Rother areas when needed.

There will be a mix of early shifts (05.00 to 13.00) and daytime shifts (09.00 to 17.00), with breakfast provided for all early shifts.

We would love to hear from applicants who are passionate about delivering a dynamic, trauma-informed support service to people with health, housing and/or substance dependency needs.

You will need your own car but mileage and car user allowance is paid in addition to your salary.

Training and full induction is provided for all new team members.

You will be joining a welcoming team and organisation, we offer plenty of development opportunities and a range of staff benefits such as a Blue Light Card, Health Care Cash Back Scheme, local and national discounts, £100 reward for passing your probationary period and a supportive, professional working environment.

We are a Disability Confident Employer and are fully committed to supporting Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) and welcome applications from all candidates that meet our job specifications.  If you feel there is a barrier that potentially prevents you from applying, do get in contact with us at jobs@southdown.org as we are always happy to discuss (or arrange a discussion with the recruiting manager) to explore if any reasonable adjustments can be made to support your application
