Cardinal Hume Centre

The Cardinal Hume Centre enables people to gain the skills they need to overcome poverty and homelessness. We work with homeless young people, badly housed families and others in need. We are very pleased to have obtained funding for an additional fixed-term Housing Advisor post to cope with the additional demand caused by the Coronavirus crisis.

We are looking to recruit a Housing Advisor (fixed term post for 1 year)
Salary: £33,259 per annum

Based in our Advice Team, you will use your in-depth knowledge and experience of providing specialist housing advice to provide a structured information, advice and casework service to clients of the centre in housing law, housing options and aspects of welfare benefits that relate to housing and homelessness. You will manage your own specialist caseload and provide advice, support and training to staff who are not specialists in this area to enable them to assist clients with less complex enquiries.

We are looking for an experienced housing advisor with excellent communication and interpersonal skills who is passionate about enabling people to overcome homelessness and poverty. You will have gained a minimum of 2 years’ experience of housing advice and casework through paid or other voluntary experience. A legal qualification would be an advantage.
