What do I do?
I’m involved in supporting the Hostel Manager in ensuring that hostel services are delivered and developed effectively and efficiently. I support a team of five hostel workers to develop professionally. As part of my role,I attend consultations and meetings with stakeholders and other service providers to discuss homeless strategies in Leeds.
I love my job because….
I enjoy the variety of my work and I like building working relationships with clients and otherservice providers.
I used to be a Hostel Worker and Resettlement Worker, which enabled me to work closely with clients. I have also completed Studies in Mental Health at Leeds Metropolitan University and as a result I applied for and was successful in securing the post of Resettlement Officer.
What can I look forward to?
My role involves fresh challenges, which includes assisting clients to move on from the hostel with independent living skills and confidence to seek work either through further education/training or accessing new skills and to take their place as valued members of society.
