Job description

Recruitment during COVID-19 restrictions
During the COVID-19 restrictions, our interviews will be by video call.
Additionally, the successful applicant will be fully supported to work from home for the initial period where restrictions on non-essential travel are in place.

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.

The Crisis Data and Technology team is embarking on a multi-year program of modernisation which includes leveraging the productivity tools in Microsoft Office 365, such as Teams and adjacent productivity products including Atlassian Confluence/Jira. Crisis is looking to support digitally smart ways of working and evolve it’s SharePoint based intranet to offer a more personalised staff experience. Crisis is an agile not for profit organisation where you will have the chance to put your ideas to the test for our staff and volunteers.

About the role

As the only Office 365 Developer/Analyst, you will primarily act as a technical lead to configure and develop our Office 365 estate focusing on collaborative productivity tooling such as SharePoint, Yammer, Teams and Crisis customisations Power Automate. Working across the organisation supporting our Skylights (day centres for the homeless) and offices you will help individuals, teams and projects effectively collaborate and communicate through Microsoft (and Atlassian) toolsets. You will manage (or develop yourself if you have the skills) all bespoke customisations throughout Crisis in the Office 365 cloud.

As part of the wider Data and Technology team you will act as a 3rd line resolver behind the Helpdesk and support the development of training materials for end users.

About you

To be successful in this role you will have to be able to walk in the shoes of our users, understand their needs and develop tooling accordingly. You will be comfortable to have a voice in developing shared ways of communicating and working.

Your expertise is in the Microsoft world of Office 365 and adjacent toolsets. No level of expertise is too high for this role but if you don’t (for example) yet develop in Power Automate then you can either learn this at Crisis or manage this through 3rd parties. Either way you will have passion and strong product knowledge across all the productivity tooling associated with Office 365 and beyond.


As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

· Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
· Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
· 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
