We have an exciting opportunity to join St Mungo’s as a Service Development Manager, covering our South West England Region.

At St Mungo’s our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions.  As a homelessness charity and housing association our clients are at the heart of what we do. We provide a bed and support to more than 2,700 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to end homelessness and rebuild lives.

This will have a particular focus on delivering new housing and homeless projects, developing and improving our current provision. This role is based in either Oxford or Bristol but travel across the region and London is expected.

Key responsibilities in this role are:

  • To investigate and develop new business opportunities. To work with the Service Director and Business Development Team on developing and growing our portfolio of services within the Region; supporting the development of regional pipelines and a regional growth strategy.
  • To establish and implement new contracts. To be directly responsible for the successful implementation and startup of new teams and services.
  • To support Regional Heads where management gaps, issues or opportunities arise. To lead and motivate the managers responsible for the day to day delivery of an agreed number of teams within the region.
  • To build a network of contacts across the region. To represent St Mungo’s to external stakeholders, including local authorities and other funders.
  • To support Service Managers in delivering best practice across their services. To help develop and implement processes, initiatives, policies and procedures, and services that promote the key ambitions and approaches of the organisation.

We are looking for someone with the demonstrable ability to complete delegated tasks and to effectively manage multiple service priorities and commissioner contacts. Someone with the energy and project management skills to successfully seize opportunities, trouble shoot problems, implement projects and ensure effective contract compliance. If you have experience of leading teams to deliver services to groups of vulnerable clients, in an outreach, supported housing, care or other relevant environment; of networking, liaising and negotiating and, of successfully setting up new services we encourage you to apply.

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and initiatives to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development.

If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless, we encourage you to apply.
