About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

Our shops generate valuable income to support our services, create opportunities for homeless people to learn new skills, and contribute to Crisis’ work in the community. They have a unique contemporary visual identity and are dynamic and creative places to work. 

Title:  Shop Supervisor

Hours: ​​​​​​​Post 1: 40 hours, five days over a seven-day rota. Post 2: 24 hours, three days over a seven-day rota. Full flexibility is not required, but you will need some ability to work flexible days which will be discussed at interview. Rotas are agreed at least a month in advance. 

About the role

We are recruiting for two shop supervisors to join our group of London shops. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference and deliver positive social impact in the local community while also raising money to fund Crisis’ work ending homelessness. 

We currently have the following positions vacant, but we may appoint to additional positions if they become available. 

Post 1: Based in Crisis Peckham, full time (40 hours per week) 

Post 2: Based in Crisis Camberwell, part time (24 hours per week over 3 days)

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices, and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness, and people from all marginalised groups, communities and backgrounds.
