We are looking for enthusiastic and caring individuals who want to make a positive change to people’s lives.

The Edinburgh Housing First programme is part of a national pathfinder spanning five cities across Scotland which aims to support people with long histories of homelessness to access a permanent home and to receive the support they need to remain there. We are looking for a skilled and committed co-ordinator to join our support team. Caseloads are intentionally small and the emphasis is on forming relationships with those who access the service.

The successful candidate will have excellent interpersonal skills, be flexible and willing to adopt an assertive approach to support.

Our dedicated staff are committed to making a difference to the lives of individuals by enabling them to make a positive contribution and engage within their local community.

The post holder will be required to work 37 hours per week on a shift rota basis. This may include the requirement to undertake sleep over duties for which an additional allowance will be paid.

The successful applicant will have the opportunity to help vulnerable adults influence real change within their day-to-day lives.  How we care and support each person is defined by them so that they can achieve realistic and desirable outcomes.

Staff employed by Barony within our Registered Housing Support and Care at Home services will be required to register with the Scottish Social Care Council (SSSC), as well as become a member of the Protection of Vulnerable Groups (PVG) Scheme for Adults.
