Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
About the role
Do you want to play a crucial role in helping Crisis develop our place-based approach to ending homelessness in Great Britain?
Can you help us find the answers to what a place must actually do, or provide, to end homelessness?
Crisis is committed to building a programme of support to be available to, and effective for, any and all communities seeking to end homelessness in Britain. Our ‘Everybody In’, plan sets out how we can end homelessness in GB. As part of this we are investing resources in two or three local areas so that we can prove what can be done when a place-based approach is taken.
Each place based partnership will mean both Crisis and the local authority in that place commits to putting a plan into action to achieve an end to homelessness there, helping to lead the way for others to learn what needs to be done to end homelessness in an area for good. This role needs someone with the right skills and experience to work with each place based partner we have secured.
This role can be based at any of our 11 nationwide offices; Croydon, Central London, Brent, Oxford, Coventry, Birmingham, Rotherham, Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh or South Wales
Are you passionate about ending homelessness? Do you want to work in a team that values people’s skills and life experiences, whatever their background?
Do you have demonstrable experience on the commissioning, management and delivery of evidence reviews that will help us understand how aspects of a system need to work differently to prevent and put an end to homelessness? Do you have experience of managing systems and databases to design services and inform decision-making? Can you bring people together and be able to communicate clearly and assertively, presenting complex research information in a user friendly way?
If this excites you and you have the skills and aptitudes we need, then we would like to hear from you. Interviews will be in early to mid March 2021
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. We really value people’s lived experience of homelessness and want to help develop diverse, committed and passionate people to help us end homelessness.
