Women’s Services Link Worker

Closing Date: 22/01/2023

Location: Belfast

Contract Type: Permanent

Job Description

This is an exciting opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness which some females experience. The Women’s Services Link Worker will provide intensive support to a small caseload of chronically homeless females until they successfully transition from homelessness to home.

The women will have complex and multiple needs including; repetitive periods of homelessness, significant histories of trauma, mental health, addiction and family breakdown. They will also have struggled to engage with other support services which exacerbates and prolongs their homelessness experience and results in them ‘revolving’ around the system.

If you are motivated, resourceful, and passionate about empowering and supporting women who are homeless then join our team.  You must be able to provide trauma-informed, strength-based support and work to the Welcome ethos of low threshold and high tolerance services.  In return, we will provide the opportunity to develop your skills, professional supervision and support, along with being part of a team where your views count and where you can make a lasting difference to the lives of homeless women.

This job may suit a recently qualified social worker or mental health practitioner.

Further information about this role can be found on the Welcome Organisation’s website.

Depending on the number of applicants, we may start to shortlist and contact applicants before the closing date.

Interview dates will be between 23rd and 29th January.
