The leadership, the infrastructure, the strategy and the rewards, including flexible working – everything is in place for good people to develop and achieve a great deal, particularly if, like us, they have a passion for the cause.

There are so many exciting things happening here, not least, a major transformation and investment in our fundraising team. High Value Partnerships is responsible for raising funds from high-net-worth individuals (Philanthropy), legacy pledgers, trusts, the Big Lottery Fund and businesses, with this year’s annual income target set at £10.5m. Against the backdrop of a worsening housing crisis and increasing numbers of people who are homeless, the Philanthropy Team has ambitious plans to significantly grow income to meet the ever-growing demand for our services. Join us and you could soon be organising and running a varied special events programme tailored to a high value partnerships audience that will result in an increase in income, support of, and commitment to Shelter.

The wide range of benefits we offer include 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme. We are happy to consider part-time working too, and, as mentioned above, flexible working is a definite possibility.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
