Job description

Background

Housing Justice is the national face of Christian action on housing need and homelessness. Evolving over 60 years since its inception as the Catholic Housing Aid Society, we work across all Christian denominations and with other faith groups to address homelessness.  Housing Justice supports faith communities to respond to housing need and homelessness in their local area and campaigns for national change.

For more than a decade Housing Justice has been supporting churches to use their lands and assets to develop genuinely affordable housing. The project has been particularly successful in Wales where it has delivered scores of units of affordable housing and become a significant part of the housing landscape. The Archbishops’ Commission on Housing and Community has provided a launch pad to further develop the project in England.

Role

As a Catalyst Worker within the Church Housing Enabling Team, you’ll support churches of all Christian denominations to develop truly affordable housing on their land. You’ll be tasked with taking forward the recommendations of the Archbishop’s Commission on Affordable Housing and support decision makers in the Church of England to implement the recommendations.

We’re looking for someone with experience of housing development, ideally in a church environment. You’ll have a strong commitment to social justice and addressing Britain’s housing crisis and the role that churches and communities can play. Ideally you’ll be someone looking to join a team they can help grow and a project they can help develop. Most of all you’ll be able to take technical knowledge of housing development and communicate it effectively to non specialist audiences to achieve change.
