Peabody have an exciting opportunity for a permanent full time outreach support worker role, working within the borough of Havering. Peabody is contracted to provide housing related support. The service hours are Min to Fri 9am to 5pm with occasional extended hours if the need arises. As part of our outreach contract we hold various surgeries within the community which include drop in facilities and a Community Food shop. The successful candidate will work face to face within the community and also providing telephone support and contact. The team at times work from home or from various hubs across Havering. The role also consists of helping reduce social isolation and encouraging residents to be part of their community.
At Peabody, where possible, we provide flexible working opportunities from day one to our employees, as we recognise the importance of a good work-life balance; and to improve our productivity and performance, we embrace agile working, which means if you are in a desk based role, that will be a hybrid of office and home working. If your role is in a client facing environment, appropriate base location will apply.
Our mission is to help people make the most of their lives and an important part of this is to ensure that our organisation reflects the wider communities we serve. We want to attract recruit and retain a diverse, inclusive and creative workforce to give us the best opportunity to meet the diverse needs of our residents and customers. We actively encourage applications from all groups and communities, as well as from BAME, LGBTQ+ and disabled people.
