The Rapid Rehousing Workers will carry caseloads of approximately 30 cases and rapidly assess and develop Rapid Rehousing Support Plans. The Rapid Rehousing Workers will provide intensive, housing support (1-2hours/week) to help households to identify and secure privately rented housing (via Enfield's Find Your Own Home Scheme).
The Rapid Rehousing Workers also will provide practical advice and support on PRS access as well as financial support. The Workers will also accompany households to viewings, liaise with landlord/agents, arrange payments to landlords and to help set up new tenancies to improve sustainment.
The Rapid Rehousing Workers will also assist Housing Coordinators to assess the main duty and to help households to set up housing benefit claims, which will improve income collection on the costliest commercial hotels.
We want ambitious, proactive people who can find creative and innovative solutions to local problems and a passion for customer service. You must have knowledge and experience of the implementation of the statutory homelessness framework (Legislation, Suitability Order, Caselaw), including assessments, prevention, relief and main duties, TA duties and accommodation offers.
You must have excellent written and verbal communication skills, strong IT skills and be able to work autonomously and inclusively in a team"
