Job description

We are excited to recruit to a post that aims to influence the support for women who are homeless (or at risk of) at practitioner and strategic level.  We are looking for a self-motivated individual who empathises with the needs of stigmatised and vulnerable women at risk of homelessness, can bring people together for peer support and to influence for change effectively and to collate, analyse and present evidence to drive system change. 

The role consists of the following key components:

  • Facilitating and support the ongoing development of the Leeds Frontline Practitioners Network for Women’s Homelessness, offering peer support, training and bringing together frontline practitioners and those in the authority responsible for strategy to hold those in authority into account
  • Influencing strategy, systems and practice to prevent and/or end womens’ homelessness in partnership with key partners and women with lived experience.

You will be working closely with the management and be part of the team that support adult women who sex work and/or are sexually exploited. You will be providing healthy challenge, actively engaging with partner organisations (third sector and statutory), to highlight issues in accessing safe & stable housing.  You will systematically identify opportunities to improve responses and pathways to enable systems change, as well as sharing learning on good practice throughout in Leeds and elsewhere. 

Working at Basis means being part of a fun, dynamic and vibrant workforce; we also offer a benefits package including flexible working (for this post, home working will be considered) contributory pension (4%), free parking; significant opportunities to access training, funded external supervision and an Employee Assistance package.
