About us
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

A unique housing procurement opportunity…

About the role

You’ll join our new Rapid Rehousing Team at an exciting time, delivering an outstanding pan London property procurement service across the private and social rented sector and contributing to the delivery of Housing First and Crisis at Christmas. Working alongside Housing Coach services, you will identify appropriate matches of tenants and homes.
It’s a role requiring a creative approach as you partner with both Social and Private landlords and our members. You will work collaboratively with the Housing Coach and other staff across our 3 London Skylights to ensure tenants receive the support they need to sustain their homes and landlord relationships are nurtured. There is scope for development of the role and plenty of support. It’s a fantastic opportunity!


About you
You’re known for your creative approach to solving problems and you have experience of sourcing, procuring, allocating homes and making tenancies work for tenants and landlords. You know the London housing market and the barriers and opportunities faced by people moving out of homelessness and into housing. Understanding of housing law is essential along with the ability to develop, build and maintain key relationships.

Benefits
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

· Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
· Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
· 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
