Do you have a genuine interest in supporting people to rebuild their lives?

About the role:

The Senior Case Worker is part of the Hammersmith and Fulham Navigator Service, made up of three Senior Case Workers, a Co-ordinator and a Service Manager. The Navigator Service provide intensive support to vulnerable adults who:

- Are at risk of homelessness, e.g. due to eviction or difficulties sustaining their tenancy,
- Are in Supported Housing and need intensive support to be able to move on into their own independent tenancy
- Are homeless (e.g. sleeping on the streets / sofa surfing / leaving hospital or prison with no accommodation) and are needing intensive support to find suitable accommodation

About you

The Senior Case Worker will carry their own caseload of clients who they will be responsible for delivering intensive case work to. Navigator clients may have multiple and complex support needs, including substance misuse, mental health, physical health, and offending behaviours.

The Navigators work to empower clients in their recovery from homelessness and/or on their journey to independence.

To achieve this, we:

- are flexible and client-centred. We breakaway from a one-size-fits all approach, instead we provide dynamic and flexibility support that offers clients choice in how we work with them
- develop expert skills and knowledge to support clients to navigate their way through services, e.g. housing, benefits, health, substance misuse etc.
- use personalised budgets to ensure clients have the resources they need to live safe, happy lives and progress on their recovery journey
- work in a trauma informed manner, taking into account clients psychological and emotional needs.

A Diverse and Inclusive Work Place

- Equality, diversity and inclusion are central to the organisation's values and how we work.
- We are proud of our commitment to diversity and inclusion and have 8 great Diversity Networks to support clients and staff from different backgrounds so they are able to be their best selves.

Pay and Other Benefits

- St Mungo’s is proud to pay client facing staff above average for the sector. We run a cycle to work scheme and also offer season tickets loans to all staff.
