Team Leader - Recovery & Opportunities

We are seeking someone who is creative, highly organised with strong leadership skills, to develop and manage a team of dispersed Recovery & Opportunities Coordinators (ROCs) across our services. 

SHP (Single Homeless Project) is one of London’s leading homelessness prevention charities and 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.

Reporting to the Head of Programmes, you will oversee the day to day running of the programmes across SHP as well as directly supervising a range of specialist staff.  You will also lead on the ongoing development of a timetable of recovery focused activities and resources based in our accommodation services, which spans several London boroughs.

To succeed, you will have proven experience of working with individuals affected by mental ill health, substance use, rough sleeping and related complex needs.  You will also have proven practical experience of developing and delivering clinical/group work, for a client group that might be resistant to engage or change. 

Defined and developed through best practice, our services work with people of all genders who have unmet needs relating to social isolation, mental health and/or substance misuse and these are typically co-occurring presentations. Our Opportunities Programme has been developed to instigate and support the process of change and recovery, with daytime workshops and sessions being run such as yoga, mindfulness, arts and arts for therapy, health and wellbeing including sport & fitness, cook and eat, therapeutic horticulture.

At SHP we welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and are committed to having a workforce that is made up of diverse individuals, skills, experiences and abilities.  Due to current under –representation at management level, we particularly encourage applications from individuals within our Black and Asian communities.

Closing date for applications: 15th February 2021 (at Midnight)

Interviews to be held: 2nd March 2021
