Has your office management experience been gained in a customer-facing environment where you also ran administration systems? Then join Shelter as a Service Administration and Data Manager and you could soon be putting that experience to excellent use.
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.
About the Role
We operate a thriving Hub of client-focused services in the city centre where people can access a range of advice and support. This includes legal advice and representation, housing related support services and an Information and Resource facility. Each service aims to empower clients to make decisions and take action for themselves by providing legal advice, referrals and signposting, advocacy and practical support. Your challenge will be to oversee the administration of the Hub and ensure the effective day-to-day running of the office and administration team. We’ll also rely on you to manage the collection, storage and interpretation of data and reporting relating to the hub and its outcomes. This will involve attending meetings to represent the hub, producing reports and implementing projects to improve service delivery. Put simply, you won't be short of interest and variety.
A great opportunity to make the most of your office management skills, your experience of analysing data, writing reports and performing complex analysis will have every chance to shine. So too will your proven ability to manage others. Proactive, creative and innovative, you're commercially aware too. What/s more, you're not afraid challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas and processes where appropriate. Proficiency using Microsoft Office applications is important too, as is a typing speed of at least 50wpm. But, if you can bring all that and are able to work collaboratively and respond well to change, this rewarding role could be yours.
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.
