Supported Housing recruitment agency listing
Working in Supported Housing usually means working for a housing association, local authority or council, or charitable organisation. The roles in this sector range from being a supported housing officer to managerial positions.
Work in this sector involves working closely with vulnerable tenants, many of whom may suffer from learning or physical disabilities, or from enduring illnesses. In other cases, the work may involve working with at risk children and adults and in most cases CRB checks will be undertaken. For the most part, workers in this sector tend to have acquired official qualifications, but it is also possible to receive training and qualifications such as NVQs whilst on the job.
Work in the supported housing sector can be found all over the country, and although starting salaries tend to fall below the national average, there is clear opportunity for promotion and growth in most roles. Once at the managerial stage, salaries fall around the £30,000 mark.
For the most part it is best to search for employment in this sector through specialist recruitment agencies. The nature of the work in supported housing means that the inside knowledge of such agencies is simply invaluable for both prospective employees and employers.
