About the job

This role has been identified as suitable for Hybrid Working which will be a combination of home working and working from our offices in Ludlow with travel to other offices as required.

Connexus is a community focused housing group which aims to deliver high quality homes and services across Shropshire and Herefordshire. The work we do is varied, and no two days are the same.

You’ll be joining a team which provides a wide range of excellent support services including independent living for older people, providing specialist accommodation and services for younger people, and managing a refuge and other safe accommodation for those fleeing domestic abuse.

Our teams also provide supported temporary accommodation for those aged 18-55 who have complex needs. Some roles involve providing help locally in the community, supporting and offering specialist advice and working with our partners to prevent homelessness.

We provide an excellent offer for colleagues which includes flexible working options combined with some fantastic benefits. We’re here to support colleagues at every step of the way with training and development opportunities, helping you make the most of your career. If you want to work with like-minded people and would like to make a difference to the lives of our customers, Connexus could be the right fit for you.

Are you looking for a challenging and rewarding role where you are able to empower people every day to develop their skills and move towards independence? Do you enjoy working in an environment where every day is different to the next? Do you have experience of supporting people in the community? Then this could be the role for you.

You will work with individuals who may have experienced domestic abuse and who may be at risk of homelessness. You will enjoy supporting others and helping them to progress and achieve their goals. Your positive attitude towards your work and your team will help to contribute to a great working environment. You will have a calm and personable manner and be able to handle potentially difficult situations.

Candidates should have previous experience of working in a front-line service with individuals in crisis situations and be able to demonstrate an understanding of housing support needs. This post is primarily supporting people throughout Shropshire and candidates should have access to their own vehicle.
