Case Worker (Tenancy Sustainment)

This is a 12 month fixed-term contract.

As a Caseworker, your focus will be on tenancy sustainment. You will play a key role within our housing options team working with people in housing need, particularly those living in temporary accommodation, to access new accommodation in the private sector. You will then provide ongoing tenancy sustainment support to help minimise the risk of these households becoming homeless again in the future. You will also work with landlords and agents in the private sector, to secure new accommodation and provide the first point of contact for enquiries once the tenancy is up and running.

You will be committed to improving the life chances of homeless households, and have previous experience working in a housing related field. A working knowledge of current housing and benefits legislation would be desirable.
