Then join Shelter in the brand new role of Head of Community Contracts and you could soon be responsible for managing change, influencing stakeholders and shaping how we deliver contracts and grants within our Community Services in the future.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.
We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.
About the team
Shelter’s Community and National Services teams deliver a large number of contracts and grants programmes. Central to our vision is placing our Community Hubs located in England at the heart of their communities. Providing advocacy that achieves systemic change for not only individuals, but the wider community and local practice, our hubs focus on developing relationships, building trust and helping to organise local energy. They also work with groups, organisations and individuals that want to bring about change at a local level, as well as contribute to national change to better tackle housing and homelessness issues. Our contracts and grants programmes are critical in helping deliver systemic change. Our ambition is to design and build even better services so that people who have lived experience are at the centre and we can play our part in addressing local and national change priorities. You’ll play a big part in helping to make that happen.
About the Role
This challenging role has been created to support the development of the contract management frameworks of the larger contracts being delivered within our Community Hubs. We’ll also rely on you to critically review and manage Housing and Homelessness contracts and grants relating to Families, Women and Children, Substance Misuse, Drug and Alcohol and Homeless support. Contract monitoring and reporting across the various parts of each project, including monitoring project outcomes and finances and ensuring quality of service delivery will be a key aspect of the role. You’ll also need to adopt a continuous improvement approach to overall service delivery, thus ensuring the relevant parts of a project work together to achieve the overall aim and outcomes.
We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.
Ideally, you have some knowledge of housing or homelessness, although we’ll happily consider people from related fields, including welfare benefits, employability, justice or the charity sector. What’s for certain is that you’re an experienced senior and people manager with a flair for budget management and the exceptional communication skills it takes to represent an organisation, influence policy and practice and proactively lead/champion issues relating to strategic priorities. You’re also adept at developing a vision, influencing a variety of stakeholders and driving change to systems and practises within your own remit and more broadly across an organisation. Experience of matrix or change management and a proven ability to work alongside peers with a positive approach are must haves too, as is the confidence to make decisions, implement plans, lead strategic initiatives and form recommendations for a senior leadership team to help develop a services directorate.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.

- Developing and delivering a UK-wide community fundraising product
- Recruitment and training of fundraising volunteers

This is a critical role in the delivery of the RNID’s new strategy. You will be responsible for developing on and offline communities to engage with the organisation in traditional community fundraising ways but also developing community as an important channel to market existing RNID fundraising products.

Established in 1911, we help people to take control of their lives and live the life they choose, removing the barriers standing in their way.
