Job description

SHP is looking for a specialist Recruitment and Resourcing professional to fill our new role of Recruitment Manager. 

The Recruitment Manager will lead the centralised recruitment function (a team of two administrators) within the wider HR&OD Department and work closely with recruiting managers across SHP's diverse range of London based services.

The successful candidate will have the vision and expertise to transform our recruitment and selection strategy and the methods we use to recruit new staff, the influencing and communication skills to embed effective and ethical recruitment practice across SHP and the hands-on organisational and operational skills to deliver an effective service in a busy and always changing environment.

We'll expect the right candidate to bring their recruitment and resourcing expertise to a number of current, important objectives and projects, such as developing effective recruitment campaigns for new trainee programmes and reducing our reliance on agency and locum staff and we'll expect them to have the analytical skills to be able to monitor, evaluate and report on progress.

In summary, we're looking for someone who will join in SHP's mission to prevent homelessness and transform the lives of vulnerable and socially excluded people and help us to achieve it through developing an excellent recruitment function.

At SHP (Single Homeless Project), you’ll be part of one of London’s leading homelessness prevention charities, a dynamic and growing organisation changing 8,000 lives every year across London - from supporting people in crisis to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment.

SHP was founded by a group of homeless people in the mid-1970s and more than 40 years on, we still try to look at the world through our clients’ eyes, putting their needs and viewpoints at the centre of everything we do. Above all, we believe that, no matter what challenges they face, everyone we work with has the capacity to take control of their lives and shape their own futures.
