Outreach Coordinator– Rough Sleeping Services
£28,785 - £32,029 pa
Permanent/Full Time (37.5 Hours per week)
Are you passionate about ending Rough Sleeping, and supporting people to rebuild their lives? We are currently looking for an Outreach Coordinator to join the team in Brighton.
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.
Our belief is that rough sleeping is an intrinsically harmful and dangerous activity both for the individual and for the wider community. Therefore we take a proactive and assertive approach to supporting people away from this activity. Our aim is to support people to recover from the effects of rough sleeping and move away from a street lifestyle permanently.
In this roles you will support the Service Manager and oversee the day to day delivery and progress of the Brighton Outreach team, supervise the case management of a team of Outreach Workers and other staff; and build and maintain productive relationships with internal and external stakeholders including the Local Authority, other homeless services and housing providers across the city. You will also have the opportunity to support the Service Manager in collating information for reporting to demonstrate the themes and issues the team face.
Flexibility is essential as you will be expected to work outside of your normal working hours when required, covering shifts that include early mornings, nights and weekends.
We are looking for a passionate, committed and insightful individual, who has experience of coordinating or leading a service delivery team in outreach, housing or other relevant services. Experience of managing staff and volunteers in a fast paced environment; and an understanding of the issues faced by homeless or vulnerable people is essential. If you are an excellent communicator who is able to build and maintain relationships within a team, with external agencies, Local Authorities and Commissioners we encourage you to apply.
Above all we are looking for someone with a genuine interest in supporting people to rebuild their lives.
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.
