Elim is proud to be working in innovative ways and we strive to provide excellent service and support to our clients. Elim uses the PIP approach (Psychologically Informed Practice) to work with our clients in holistic way to ensure they receive the best support possible.

We are looking for highly organised, motivated individual with exceptional communication skills who is passionate about making positive difference in peoples’ lives. As a Supported Housing Officer you will be working closely with our clients, supporting them through difficult times in their lives. This involves dealing with housing management issues as well as working closely with our tenants on 1 to 1 basis.
