Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.



We have fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team. We support our brilliant customers who have a mental health diagnosis in the Ipswich community.



We help our customers to life their life’s independently and to help them feel enabled. Weekly contact is made by The Community Team to ensure that our customers are supported.



About our team



You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements. To us were not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Our manager is Steve, Senior Client Service Manager who has worked for Homegroup for over 9 years. There are 3 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too!



Working hours



You’ll work 9am to 5pm two days per week between Monday to Friday. (no weekend working!!) We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you!



Bank



Looking for a more flexible working pattern? You can also join us on a flexible basis by being part of our bank. You can work hours that fit around your current commitments or even pick up some additional shifts to your main role to earn some extra cash and get paid on a weekly basis.



About you



You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds. You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.



We help change our customer’s lives for the better. You’ll play your part by assisting in the delivery of tasks that are based on our customers personal support plans, and their needs and aspirations. You’ll work with our Senior Support Workers and external agencies to assess and engage support for our customers. We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!



To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!). You do need to know that we are quite a high tech company and most of our application process and mandatory learning are online. However, we’re glad to support you, if you need help.



It would be amazing if you have worked in this type of environment before, however it’s your “can do” positive attitude and enthusiasm that are critical to make this role a success. We can nurture your talent, just let us know in your cover letter why you have a passion for working here!



As this is a community-based role, you need to be able to drive, as well as having access to a car insured for business purposes. Don’t worry, we’ll pay you expenses to cover this use!



When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
