We are Hiring, Join Our Team

Our Turning Point Scotland Services in Fife are looking for Full and Part-Time Support Practitioners to assist in the provision of personalised support to a wide range of people experiencing homelessness and to take forward our well-established Housing First support. Because People MatteratTurning Point Scotland, why not join us to reach your full potential.

Fife Housing First

Fife Housing First is a new service in which we will work across localities in Fife to enable people to maintain independent tenancy sustainment, reconnect with their local communities and assist them to build their resilience to prevent repeat homelessness. We respond to the individual needs of those who are homeless or at the risk of becoming homeless, including those who are rough sleeping, or are in temporary or permanent accommodation. The service supports people who may have multiple needs which may be related to mental health, substance use, offending, finance and employment.

We believe that a home is a human right and that an individual is best placed to deal with the issues that made them homeless in the first place, in a place they can call home.

As a Lead Practitioner, you will be required to work on your own initiative, make decisions and provide support to colleagues; you will work with individuals who have a wide range of support needs, providing them with practical and emotional support and encouraging them to achieve their own personal outcomes.

Standard working hours are Monday to Friday, 9am - 5pm Mon - Thurs, 9am - 4.30pm Fri.

TPS recognise and value the role of lived experience in the support process. We actively encourage people who have lived experience (of homelessness, problematic alcohol or other drug use, compromised mental well-being or the justice system) to apply for this role.
