Homeless Support Worker

We believe that everyone deserves a chance in life to become who they want to be regardless of their situation, and with the support and guidance from our dedicated team of staff with over two decades of knowledge, we believe we can achieve positive outcomes for all.

AMAT have been ever present in the homeless sector offering supported accommodation to the people in Kent and we are now looking to add to our team with the addition of a full time (37.5 hours per week) Homeless Support Worker.

The focus of this position is to empower an allocated group of residents to live independent lives. To achieve this, you will work with service users to develop person-centred support plans, maintain regular contact with service users through support meetings, refer service users to relevant key services, provide support to achieve support goals and help with benefit or resettlement issues, and maintain a record of all contact in service user files.

At AMAT, we are focused on delivering the best service we can to our service users, and operate a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year service in order to achieve this. As such, you will be required to work bank holidays (including Christmas day and New Year’s Day on a rota basis). Therefore, flexibility is key to this role! The hours for this position are weekly alternating shifts of 8.30am – 5.00pm, and 9.00am – 5.30pm, with a minimum of one later shift of 12.30pm – 9.00pm per week. You will work five days over seven, including weekends on a rota basis.

The ideal candidate will be proactive and self-motivated, with a positive and enthusiastic attitude to work. You will also need to have excellent IT skills and communication skills, with the ability to motivate, engage and build positive working relationships with our service users. A full driving license is preferred due to the location of our properties.
