We are seeking an Accommodation Manager in a full-time post on a permanent contract to support JRS UK’s accompaniment, service and advocacy alongside refugees.
JRS UK has been working with destitute refugees over 30 years. Alongside accompaniment, advice and support, we provide short-term accommodation through our hosting scheme ‘At Home’ and a home for women in South London (Emilie House). The Accommodation Manager will oversee all aspects of our accommodation provision, including Emilie House and the hosting scheme, and work on expanding and developing our accommodation provision to support more destitute refugee friends.
The role would suit someone with experience of managing and supporting accommodation provision for vulnerable people. You’ll have a understanding of UK asylum process, the causes of destitution amongst asylum seekers, and how prolonged destitution impacts peoples mental and physical health, and the difference stable accommodation can make. You’ll have a passion for working with and for refugees and asylum seekers, working in a small diverse team, and finding creative solutions to problems and challenges.
The Accommodation Manager will supervise an Accommodation Officer and work closely with the Destitution Services and Legal teams at JRS UK to ensure those we support with accommodation are receiving the specialist advice and casework needed to move out of destitution.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
