We provide a bed and support to more than 2,700 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to end homelessness and rebuild lives.

Housing First is an innovative approach to supporting the most entrenched, excluded and hard to reach clients. It focuses on finding appropriate housing as quickly as possible and then addressing the issues that have contributed to an individual’s homelessness. This service is typically for clients with multiple needs or those who otherwise get stuck in supported accommodation services without achieving traditional milestones for move on.

We are looking to recruit a Housing First Co-ordinator to lead on the development and day-to-day delivery of the service, line manage Housing First workers, as well as oversee volunteers and/or peer mentors. You will also be responsible for liaising with other services and landlords / housing providers. 

To succeed in this vital you will have experience of day-to-day management/supervision of staff or demonstrable willingness and capacity to develop management skills. You will also have the ability to manage complex and difficult situations in relation to people as well as the ability to liaise with and co-ordinate the work of a number of individuals and/or agencies; in order to achieve effective outcomes.

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.
