Trainee Assessment & Reconnection Worker
£19,263 – £20,609 pa
If you are looking to change direction or are just starting out, our high profile No Second Night Out (NSNO) service is seeking to recruit talented people of all backgrounds, to join us through our NSNO Traineeship and develop a career in homelessness services.
The No Second Night Out (NSNO) project aims to ensure that no individual new to rough sleeping in the capital need sleep out for a second night. NSNO has successfully helped over 5000 people to exit rough sleeping and find accommodation.
You will work in one of our three Assessment Hubs that run 24/7 and participate on the 24/shift rota where you will get plenty of “hands-on” experience, intensive support and coaching from your line manager and mentor. You will also get a tailored induction program and participate in a NSNO training program; working towards becoming an Assessment & Reconnection worker.
You will learn and develop skills to be able to play a central role in carrying out comprehensive needs assessments; you will learn to offer support and advice about finding solutions away from rough sleeping. You will also learn to put together reconnection and support plans and provide assertive interventions in order to prevent people from returning to rough sleeping. This opportunity will give you the above, as well as a platform to progress into a range of opportunities in homelessness services.
To succeed you will be dynamic individuals with commitment to helping vulnerable people make positive changes in their lives. You will also have excellent communication skills, and the ability to work in a busy, fast paced environment. Some travel outside London will be required.
In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and flexible working to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.
