Support Coordinator – Level 3 (2 roles)
Bath Road, Dorking
1 Year Fixed Term, Full Time (37.5 hpw)
Salary £22,500 pa, plus great benefits including Health Cash Plan!
Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.
We have a fabulous job opportunity for you to join our awesome team as a Support Coordinator. We support our brilliant customers living in communal supported accommodation in the heart of Dorking, who have a mental health diagnosis and a housing requirement.
We support, enable and empower our customers in a person-centred way to gain life skills to enable them to maintain a tenancy and a home of their own.
As our Support Coordinator, you’ll help change our customer’s lives (and our services) for the better by undertaking risk assessments, support planning, goal setting and regular reviews. You’ll create bespoke and personalised support plans with and for your customers. Each plan will look to meet our customer’s individual needs and aspirations, making sure they meet safeguarding and confidentiality requirements.
You’ll also have responsibility for coordinating our support workers, apprentices and volunteers, and working collaboratively with external agencies, to assess and engage support for our customers.
We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!
You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds.
To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it’s really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!) You’ll be given the latest IT kit, which could include a Surface Pro tablet and smart phone, supported by our new online integrated IT system. This means that you don’t have to be in the office as you can complete support plans on the go.
It would be amazing if you’ve had a job in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!
As this is a community-based job, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a vehicle insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!
When you join as a Support Coordinator, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
About our team
As our Support Coordinator, you’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements. To us we’re not just a team we’re a ‘work family’.
Our manager is Nicky, who looks after Camberley and Dorking services with our other Support Co-Ordinators: Huyla, Rob and Dave. We don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!
You’ll work a shift pattern covering Mon-Fri between the hours of 9am-7pm with the possibility of some weekends further down the line. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!
Be yourself at Home
Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We’re super proud of our internal Diversity Networks and allies (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be their true selves. We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work!
