Security Officer - Nights


Permanent, Full time (37.5 hpw)

Salary of £19,360 pa, plus Brilliant Benefits!

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

Here in Teesside, Durham and Sunderland, Home Group have a large number of support services, which help our many customers who all have individual and varying needs.

We have a fantastic job opportunity for a wonderful and enthusiastic night owl like you, to join our Central Resource Team (CRT) as our Security Officer - Waking Nights.

As our Waking Nights Housing Concierge, you’ll work across all our supported accommodation services to cover annual leave, absences and emergencies.

You’ll play an important job in supporting the smooth running of the services. You’ll make sure that our buildings and customers are safe and secure, and that we get on with our neighbours!

You’ll be our first point of contact for customers during the night. Your duties will include monitoring CCTV, regularly patrolling the premises, buddying up with other services through the night, monitoring visitors to and from the building and ensuring tenancy conditions and service rules are adhered to. At times we’ll also need you to do some general cleaning duties.

Your future career could start with CRT. If you like diversity in your working life, meeting lots of different people, supporting a variety of services and teams then CRT is definitely for you. Alternatively, like some of our former CRT colleagues you may find your niche with one of the services and settle there permanently.

Be yourself at Home

Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We’re super proud of our internal Diversity Networks and allies (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be their true selves. We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work!

About you

As our Security Officer, 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.

Ideally, you’ll have experience working nights and have had a job working in supported services with vulnerable people, however this is not essential. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help to you understand how things work at Home Group!

As our Waking Nights Housing Concierge, you’ll be responsible for managing your own time, using your initiative and have strong written and verbal communication skills. We need you to be flexible, resilient, and adaptable.

If you’re not the biggest fan of technology, that’s not a problem to us. 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.

As you’ll travel around the area to work in our services, it is essential you drive and have access to a vehicle, we pay your 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.

On the job working hours

You’ll work on a four on, four off rolling rota between the hours of 9pm and 8:15am, dependent on services. This includes working weekends and bank holidays.

To meet our customers’ needs and also to make sure you have a work – life balance, we aim to be flexible in our approach.

About our team

You’ll join our outgoing team, full of diverse characters, who are all friendly, helpful, and supportive (great news for newbies).

The Team is led by Yvonne, who’s worked for Home Group since 2014 so is perfectly placed to support you as you join. Yvonne started as a Support Worker and took full advantage of all the training and experience we offer here at Home Group.

She is supported (and couldn’t do without) our Client Service Manager, Benjiee, who started as a Support Worker in the infancy of CRT in Teesside, Durham and Sunderland.
