Remedy Recruitment Group are looking for a Homelessness Advisor for a Local Authority in Essex.

Job Purpose

The Housing Solutions Team is part of the Housing Choice Department (the strategic housing service) and sits within the Housing Solutions Service. Its primary function is to prevent homelessness by helping customers retain their current accommodation and, where this cannot be achieved, provide access to a range of suitable alternative housing options fulfilling the Council's statutory obligations as set out in the Housing Act 1996 (as amended) and the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017.

You will be responsible for assessing customers' housing needs and wishes in line with the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017, producing and agreeing a personalised housing plan which you will keep under regular review until a long-term, sustainable housing solution is secured.

You will work holistically with customers on both their short term housing needs as well as their longer term aspirations. You will manage a caseload, drawing in support and assistance from other statutory and voluntary organisations as appropriate to help customers achieve their housing goals and increase their life opportunities moving forward.

This particular post will focus on assisting single homeless customers (including couples without children) who are living in situations where there is no security of tenure (including sofa surfers and those of no fixed abode) and those who are street homeless and rough sleeping.

You will need to be:

HCPC registered

Eligible to work in the UK
