Cornerstone’s Mission:

Cornerstone is a regional charity that supports hundreds of people each year. We are a well-respected, growing organisation dedicated to supporting the most vulnerable people across the North East.

We began as a housing charity supporting people who were homeless in the North East 15 years ago.

Our widely admired furniture making venture began in 2012 in a shed built in the yard of one of our six supported houses at that time. Since then, our housing has increased to 36 homes and a 9,000 sq ft Leaning and training complex and a high street store with drop in and training facilities in Hartlepool. The charity’s services have grown and developed to support people experiencing a wide range of personal challenges, including homelessness, addiction and recovery programs, employment guidance, employment training, and genuine employment opportunities for service users, help for people on release from prison or on probation, and support for people experiencing sexual exploitation or domestic abuse.

We’re looking for committed and compassionate professionals who share our enthusiasm for changing lives.

Job Role:

The candidate will be responsible for supporting a team of supported housing staff and overseeing the day to day running of our supported housing service based in Hartlepool and County Durham. The role is vital in ensuring that teams are working effectively with clients and alongside partner agencies; ensuring safeguarding issues are addressed, and quality and performance targets are kept on track. In addition, they will have their own client caseload. The candidate will also be responsible for ensuring health and safety obligations are met, repairs and maintenance is scheduled as required, service charges accounts are monitored and managed effectively, and voids are filled in accordance with the organisational policies and procedures.
