Join a close-knit team, working together to provide Supported Housing to residents experiencing mental health problems in Herefordshire. Following an extension of properties provided by Housing in Mind, a second Tenancy Support Worker post has become available to provide support to our 11 Housing in Mind residents.

Housing in Mind provides accommodation for people who may require a little extra practical and emotional support to maintain and sustain a tenancy. We provide a range of bedsits or shared flats in Hereford. The support we provide aims to help the individual identify what they want in order to achieve their ambitions and goals.

As a tenancy support worker, you will support our residents to maximise their independent living skills both whilst living in the project and when they move on to independent accommodation.

We can offer you a comprehensive induction programme and a working environment which values and recognises your contributions.

These are the attributes you will need to succeed:

· A non-judgemental and caring approach; with an awareness of mental health conditions.

· Excellent verbal, written and telephone communication skills.

· The ability to provide practical support to people to enhance their independent living skills.

· Understanding, and patience.

· The ability to respond calmly and confidently in emergency situations.

· The ability to display discretion and maintain confidentiality at all times.

Overall, we are looking for applications from welcoming and empathetic individuals, who can make a valuable contribution to our service. Working at Housing in Mind can be challenging but also highly rewarding and invigorating. You will become an essential part of our charity, working to make sure that no-one has to face a mental health problem alone.

We asked our current staff what it was like working for Mind and they said:

‘It’s the team and people that make the job, Mind is such a friendly workplace, everyone is welcoming and down to earth and you can feel like you are making a real difference, it’s so rewarding’
