Job description

Shelter is looking for a proactive and influential individual with a proven record of developing services for people facing disadvantages and inequalities, including homeless people, to join us as a Project Coordinator and oversee the development and implementation of Greater Manchester #HealthNow activities.

About Shelter
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 #HealthNow
Shelter, along with Crisis and Groundswell as lead partner, were successful in securing a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund to deliver #HealthNow across the UK, working towards an inclusive health system where everyone has access to the health care they need and ultimately moving people out of homelessness. Shelter (in Manchester) and Crisis (in Newcastle and Birmingham) have created local #HealthNow alliances, informed by peer-led research to understand and raise awareness of local barriers to accessing healthcare for homeless people.

About this role
Our Project Coordinator will further develop and implement Greater Manchester #HealthNow activities, including recruiting and delivering training to a team of Homeless Health Peer Advocates and Peer Researchers, who will support people to attend health appointments, gather experiences of homeless people in accessing care and treatment and ensure their rights are upheld. The role will also involve developing and coordinating the local #HealthNow Alliance meetings and activities and contribution to the national alliance. You will also be expected to deliver one-to-one supervision to volunteers and develop and maintain an effective referrals system, while ensuring advocacy appointments are delivered in line with advocacy principles and helping with the annual project planning process are also key duties.

About you
You will have a proven record of paid staff and volunteer recruitment and management and managing and motivating a team of people effectively, plus experience of managing complex projects, including using a range of Project Management techniques. An outstanding communicator, both verbal and written, with strong interpersonal, problem-solving and IT skills, you will also have a sound knowledge of how to use social media tools to share knowledge and create insights, while an understanding of the role of advocacy is also vital.

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave (pro rata), 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.

To find out more about the role and the benefits of working for Shelter please visit our website. Apply to be part of our team and be the change you want to see in society.

Safeguarding is everyone's business. Shelter is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.

Shelter does not accept unsolicited CVs from external recruitment agencies nor accept the fees associated with them.
