SSAFA – Senior Housing Adviser


Salary: £32,000 per annum

Closing date: 14 November

Job Description

About the role

As Senior Housing Adviser you will lead on delivering a quality holistic housing service to GHH clients. This will involve your own case load plus line managing housing staff and volunteers. Around half of our clients are experiencing homelessness or housing difficulty and as such we are looking to develop further in this area including integrating volunteers into our Tenancy Sustainment Programme. No two days are the same at GHH and this role will expose you to a diverse client base and a wide network of partner organisations.

About the team

Glasgow’s Helping Heroes is a friendly, informal team based in the Pearce Institute in Glasgow. We are currently working flexibly between the office and home with some outreach work too. The team at GHH work with a variety of internal and external partners including the nearby SSAFA branches and Scottish Support Office.

About you

To be successful in this role you will be an experienced housing professional with great knowledge of the housing landscape in Glasgow. You will be confident communicating to a diverse audience with excellent problem solving skills and a desire to support all our clients to find their home.

You will manage your own full and varied caseload, providing holistic advice with an emphasis on housing and homelessness. Working collaboratively with other members of the team and using your knowledge of charities and statutory organisations you will ensure practical and emotional support is available.


SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 79,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to those who have served in more recent conflicts or are still currently serving, and their families.

SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.

Diversity and Inclusion at SSAFA

SSAFA exists to support a diverse range of beneficiaries within the armed forces community, and we believe diversity within our teams is key to ensuring we can deliver our services effectively. We thrive on differences and believe it is critical to our success as a worldwide charity. SSAFA is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace that seeks to recruit, develop and retain the most talented people from a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. We therefore encourage applications from all genders, races, religions, ages and sexual orientations, as well as parents, veterans, people living with disabilities, and any other groups that could bring diverse perspectives to our business.

SSAFA is committed to using the Disclosure & Barring Service to ensure we, as an employer, safeguard those we serve.
