This a time of challenges and change in the homelessness sector in London. Homelessness has risen substantially over the last 10 years, and the Homelessness Reduction Act, Universal Benefit, the cap on Housing Benefit, and the structure of tenancies combine to shape the numbers and needs of the people seeking our services. The Margins Project (Margins) has approximately 150 attendees at its drop-ins every year. These numbers have increased in recent years as we have refined and changed the focus of our services from the provision of food towards more advice, advocacy and employability, with the aim of helping our clients make meaningful and sustainable changes to their lives.
You will be expected to ensure that Margins provides a high quality, responsive and inclusive service that supports clients to make sustainable change to their lives. Reporting to the CEO of UCP, you will be responsible for:
Staff and volunteer management;
Governance and board support
(please see the job description for more detail).
The Interim Margins Manager will support the trustees and UCP CEO with their review of the position of Margins in the wider Union Chapel.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
