Based in Byker, Newcastle

There has never been a better time to join Tyne Housing Group. In the last year we have undertaken a significant business infrastructure review. We have considered our role in the market, our financial viability and our future plans for growth. We concluded that we are best served by retaining our full independence and unique offer to vulnerable, isolated and homeless people in the Tyneside area

Tyne Housing Group is a specialist supported housing provider operating across the five Local Authorities in Tyneside; Newcastle; Gateshead; South and North Tyneside and Northumberland. It also has a charitable subsidiary, Ouseburn Farm, which comprises an urban farm and education centre; a workshop; and a retail unit selling pre-loved furniture. We offer supported housing, long term housing, therapeutic occupation, life skills training and access to health care. We are a registered housing provider with Homes England.

Services delivered by the Association include bed spaces for approximately 400 people with housing and support needs, a crisis emergency hostel, a medical centre, 100 long-term secure tenancy units, and a forensic mental health hostel. The subsidiary provides a visitor attraction at the farm plus education and training for vulnerable adults.

The organisation has a healthy financial position with assets and reserves. We believe that by focussing on core services, improving the efficiency of the organisation and becoming a key partner to key funding stakeholders, that it will have a viable future.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and accomplished Communications and Marketing officer to help us deliver our objectives and raise our profile. This new role has been created to help us with our message internally and externally. We want to have greater influence in the Region and the sector so need to tell our story. We want to be a united organisation so need to be able to reach a diverse and dispersed workforce.
