Job Vacancy

Housing Officer

We are recruiting for a Housing Officer with experience of working in a supported housing or supported living environment who can help us maintain a safe place to stay for vulnerable people in Nottinghamshire.

The Role
Are you empathetic and looking to make a difference? We are looking for someone with the energy and compassion to support and contribute to improving the lives of others who would feel empowered to tackle issues such as homelessness, addiction and mental health.

Nottinghamshire YMCA is looking for friendly, responsible applicants from all backgrounds. Excellent written and verbal communication skills are essential, as well as a good level of computer literacy. This role would suit you if you have experience or a desire to learn skills for social work, youth work, housing, drug and alcohol services, rehabilitation services, sociology, security and much more.

Our Housing Officer role is a front of house role where no two days are quite the same. You would be responsible for patrolling the premises, engaging with our residents, running activity sessions, monitoring CCTV, managing the reception desk and acting as the first point of call for incidents and emergencies amongst other duties.

We have a variety of job types available, from full time and part time, to casual shifts to fit around your commitments. Our contracted roles (full or part time) come with a wide variety of staff benefits, including free gym membership, access to free private counselling and subsidised massages, Mental Health Champion training, Green Travel Loans, Westfield Healthcare cashback, reduced cost childcare at our school holiday camps and more…

Whilst a strong understanding of safeguarding is essential to this role, we offer full training and we’re really looking for candidates that share our core values of Honesty, Respect, Caring and Responsibility, share in our mission for Social Responsibility, Youth Development and Healthy Living. The flexibility to work shifts including early morning, days and nights on a rotational basis is mandatory (including weekends). In return you will be working for an organisation that genuinely cares for its staff, whilst gaining life-changing experience and knowing that you are having a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of residents across the city and county.

This post is subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check (paid for by YMCA) and registration with the DBS Update Service. Please note we are unable to accept CVs unless accompanied by a standard application form.
