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.

Crisis at Christmas is our unique event, with centres across Britain offering people experiencing homeless food, clothing, advice and support with health, housing, employment and benefits, as well as a safe space to stay at an extremely challenging time of year.

Our Christmas Case Management Team work across the Crisis at Christmas services in London. We provide support to guests of Christmas experiencing homelessness and who lack support from other services. We continue this support into the year after Christmas and we take further referrals throughout the year form partner agencies.

We prioritise building meaningful relationships and work with people to identify what works for them. Our approach is developed from trauma informed, strengths-based and intensive case management approaches and we deliver this through an outreach-based service, working across the London boroughs.

About the role
We are looking for an experienced, skilled and driven person to join the team as a Team Leader. You will support the line management of the case managers as well as carrying a small caseload of clients. You will work alongside the team manager to develop and deliver a high-quality service in line with the aims and values of Crisis. You will be supporting the team to work with our members to end their homelessness. You will lead on member involvement within the team as well as build partnerships and progression pathways in housing and services across London. You will be supported with professional development, including training, reflective practice and regular supervisions.

You will also provide flexible, person-centred support to establish open and trusting relationships guests who attend the Christmas project. You will offer high quality information, advice and support and work in a psychologically informed way. Through establishing internal and external partnerships and advocating where necessary, you will support guests to achieve their outcomes and move away from homelessness. Finally, you will be supported by the team administrator to record and monitor the progress of service users, ensuring the data is accurate.

You will be joining a highly experienced, motivated and supportive team within an ambitious organisation, seeking to improve the quality of life of people experiencing homelessness in London.

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.
