East Suffolk Council is an exciting place to work and a great place to make a real difference to people’s lives, delivering vital services to a quarter of a million people across East Suffolk.
Rough sleeping attracts a significant level of concern and scrutiny both nationally and locally. An important part of the role will be to support and coordinate effective partnership working within the Council with officers and members in order to ensure that the ethos of eradicating Rough Sleeping is further embedded.
In this role you will coordinate Rough Sleeping initiatives and service responses across the wider community, promoting joined up partnership working and best practice across statutory and voluntary services. You will also act as a point of contact for all rough sleeping related matters and advise Members and other Council departments on rough sleeping issues.
To succeed in this role you will need to be a problem solver with substantial experience of working with a range of statutory and voluntary organisations in a Housing Related context, and have a sound understanding and working knowledge of the Homeless Reduction Act 2017.
In return, we can offer great opportunities for training and development and we’ll give you all the support we can to build a great career with our organisation. There’s also a superb benefits package including flexible working options, as well as a generous leave entitlement, discount scheme, pension scheme and free car parking.
