Job description

Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?

HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average, we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately to live independently in the community.

As a charitable registered provider of short-term social housing operating in Southend-on-Sea, we believe everyone should have a home of their own. At times individuals may require support from HARP and other agencies to maintain a tenancy and avoid a return to homelessness.

We currently manage 236 bed spaces in our emergency and short-term accommodation, employ over 100 full and part time staff, and supported by a number of volunteers.

To be considered for this role you will need to have experience of:

  • Processing payroll information for over 100 employees
  • Providing HR support to the Director of Finance and HR.

You will be joining the HARP finance team based at the central offices in Southend.
