SurvivorsUK is committed to continually developing our practice as an equal opportunities employer.
We strongly encourage the applications of people from structurally oppressed communities, and those who share some of the identities of our service users. In particular, our organisation will benefit from increasing the representation of BAM (Black, Asian and Mixed Heritage) people, trans* and non-binary people, and men in our staff teams.
About the role
This is an exciting and challenging new role at SurvivorsUK, that provides both emotional support alongside casework intervention in relation to housing, welfare rights, immigration and other practical concerns. You will need to be a highly skilled support worker with a good knowledge of the housing and welfare rights systems and experience of dealing with highly vulnerable clients, willing to work flexibly and on your own initiative. Importantly, you will be a compassionate person able to blend emotional support with practical interventions and care.
