Rapid Rehousing Coordinator

Hours: 35 per week and participating in on call manager rota

We are an award-winning housing charity based in Swansea. We are on an exciting journey of change and to reflect this we have recently changed our name from Caer Las to Goleudy (which means lighthouse in Welsh).  For people with nowhere to live, we provide accommodation, for people threatened with homelessness, we work to keep them in their homes.  Throughout all of our services, we aspire to connect people, homes and opportunities.

The role

Our rapid re-housing project provides emergency accommodation to residents who are homeless and need help finding a home.  Some residents may have additional support needs that require intensive one to one support and multiagency involvement. 

Job Purpose

  • Ensure residents have the best possible chance to move into their own home through the provision of holistic and person-centred support.
  • Manage staff rota/operational priorities with effective staff supervision/management. 
  • Deliver consistent high standards in resident accommodation and oversee the completion of project plans that improve standards further. 
  • Champion a psychologically informed approach with a clear emphasis on reflective practice, harm reduction, co-production (client choice, voice and control) and skills development. 
  • Maintain stakeholder partnerships that are outward looking and responsive to the wider pathway.
  • Maintain compliance with organisational policy frameworks, IT management systems, contractual and regulatory obligations and legislative requirements (Housing Support Grant, Housing Management, Rent Smart Wales, Safeguarding, Health & Safety and GDPR). 
  • Manage income and expenditure in line with budget expectations using critical thinking to ensure minimal use of agency staff and 95% occupancy.

Applicants must demonstrate:

  • A personal value base which is in line with our core values.
  • Openness to new ways of working and always striving for excellence.

  • Exceptional operational expertise, including quality service delivery and effective resource management. 
  • Excellent report writing ability and an analytical approach to client data systems including trend analysis.

We are not the largest housing charity, nor are we able to pay the highest salaries.  However, we believe what we offer is a competitive remuneration package, a fantastic career & personal development opportunity and the chance to join an organisation with authenticity and credibility at its core.
