Full Time Contract

We are seeking a Sheltered Housing Officer to join a small team of officers within the Independent Living service in Housing, who provide support and assistance to enable older and vulnerable residents to live independently. You will be working in a pressured, demanding but rewarding environment and you will need to ensure that the highest standards are maintained. The role will involve regular weekend working (at least twice per month).

Experience of working in a sheltered housing environment is desirable, whilst experience of working with or caring for vulnerable older people and those living with a long term condition or a disability is essential. Must have the skills and ability to communicate with a wide range of stakeholders including residents, staff and external agencies. Various computer-based systems will be used daily and will be required to prepare and maintain up to date support plans and other relevant documents for residents.

All successful candidates will be required to undertake an Enhanced Adults DBS check.
