Serving the Liverpool City Region, The Whitechapel Centre’s mission is to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty by providing practical, realistic, tailored support so that each person can find a route out of homelessness, maintain a home and achieve their individual potential.

We are looking for someone with strong people and organisational skills and the energy and drive to make things happen. You will be responsible for meeting the service's contractual requirements, performance standards and targets; providing effective leadership of a team of staff and volunteers and day to day management of the building.
