Apply now Job no: 497618
Work type: Permanent - Full Time
Location: Colchester, CO1
Department: Care and Support
Salary: £26,138 per annum

An exciting opportunity has arisen as part of our new Essex Homelessness Partnership (EHP) for two Referral and Placement Managers to oversee and lead access into temporary accommodation across the county. You will be the single points of contact across 10 Local Authority areas sharing information on accommodation availability, assessing suitability of referrals and matching to the appropriate service.

You will need to be able to work flexibly; build positive working relationships across areas worked in; provide appropriate challenge and have an understanding of the needs of those who are homeless as well as the requirements of the services placing them in.

Whilst the main office base will be in Colchester, you will be expected to attend meetings across the county with stakeholder, referral partners and other agencies. In addition, you will work closely with managers of the accommodation across the EHP pathway.

Knowledge of relevant homelessness and housing legislation and of assessing vulnerability and need are crucial, as is your ability to work to tight deadlines and manage multiple priorities.

For an informal chat please call Claire on: 07534 223059.
