Do you have considerable experience of working with the Criminal Justice Sector, ideally with prison services and CRCs to deliver resettlement services focusing on housing and financial/debt services in a prison setting? Then join Shelter as a Resettlement Manager and you could soon be managing a Transforming Rehabilitation Resettlement contract that covers the Humberside, Lincolnshire and North Yorkshire CPA.
A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.
The revised ITTG (Integrated Through the Gate) contract went live on the 1st April. We are contracted to deliver accommodation, finance, benefit and debt and employment and training interventions within the prisons in the region. We have a Resettlement Team based on site in each prison delivering the interventions via Resettlement Planning. This involves close working with both the prison and CRC staff to create an effective and efficient resettlement planning process for each offender that comes into custody.
About the role
Working closely with the local Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC), you’ll have responsibility for a remote staff team and directly manage the Team Leader that deliver resettlement services within prisons. Sitting on internal and external groups will be important too, as will representing Shelter, influencing best practice, developing strategic partnerships and actively leading and championing issues relating to our strategic priorities.
You’ll need a proven ability to contribute to the strategic development of an organisation and a track record in performance managing contracts, including supply chain management, driving efficiency and improving service effectiveness. You’ll also need experience of staff, service/business and financial management/planning of large contracts. And, because the role comes with budgetary responsibility, you must be able to analyse complex data and finances and report accurately, both internally and externally. Regularly liaising with a range of key stakeholders comes with the territory, too, so exceptional communication skills are essential.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, childcare vouchers, 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.
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.
