Job Description

Support Coordinator – Level 3

Full Time 37.5 hours per week

Permanent

Salary £19,300 pa rising to £24,300 through length of service, plus brilliant benefits!

(£9.72 per hour if you’d prefer to join our bank on a casual basis!)

Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.

Come and join our brilliant Central Resource Team! We’re looking for an enthusiastic and caring Support Coordinator to join our team where you’ll provide support to services across Durham, Teesside and Sunderland. You’ll join our team of support colleagues led by our Manager Lindsay who has worked for Home Group since 2008 when she started as a volunteer here. Lindsay took full advantage of all of the amazing the training and experience that Home Group have to offer to rise to her current position as Senior Client Services Manager!

The team has been developed to backfill annual leave for colleagues in all of the supported accommodation and community-based services in our area. You will help our customers by assessing their needs and building individual support plans that help them reach their goals and aspirations.

We provide care and support to a wide range of customers, all with different levels of needs and abilities. This means that one day you could be carrying out assessments or support plan reviews in one of our Mental Health Services, and the next day you could be covering in one of our Community-Drop ins, supporting people with housing related issues!

The role will be based predominantly in services across the Teesside area, however, you will be expected to work within Durham and Sunderland as and when required.

Working hours

You’ll work between the hours of 9:00am and 5:00pm but we do need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers. As we’re asking you to be flexible, we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!

About you

You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds.

You’ll help change our customer’s lives (and our services) for the better by undertaking risk assessments, support planning, goal setting and regular reviews. You’ll create bespoke and personalised support plans with and for your customers. Each plan will look to meet our customer’s individual needs and aspirations, making sure they meet safeguarding and confidentiality requirements.

You’ll also have responsibility for coordinating our support workers, apprentices and volunteers, and working collaboratively with external agencies, to assess and engage support for our customers. You’ll be flexible in your approach, adaptable and resilient, thrive working with all types of people, and caring in your nature.

We empower our customers to develop independent living skills that they need to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!

To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!) You’ll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system which means that you don’t have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go.

To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in a supported/customer facing environment before. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!

As this is a community-based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!

When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
