Job description

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.

It has never been a more important time for Crisis. With a newly elected Government in Westminster committed to delivering a cross-Government strategy to end homelessness, we have an opportunity to influence the transformational change that is needed to achieve this. As a Senior Policy Officer you will be joining an ambitious and motivated team to help lead Crisis’ work to develop the policy solutions needed to build a future free from homelessness.

Title:               Senior Policy Officer x2

Location: London office based with working from home in line with Crisis’ hybrid working policy

About the role

We are looking for two new Senior Policy Officers to lead the development and delivery of Crisis’ policy work in a range of areas that are key to ending homelessness, from tackling housing affordability to ensuring the right housing and support is provided for groups at highest risk of homelessness. You’ll collaborate with colleagues across the organisation and with external stakeholders to ensure that our policies are informed by the best available evidence and that people with lived experience of homelessness are at the heart of our policy work.

You’ll work closely with colleagues in the campaigns and media teams to influence key decision makers at a local, regional, and national level to bring about the policy changes needed to reverse the rising levels of homelessness we have seen in recent years. You’ll be part of an ambitious and motivated team playing a critical role in delivering real and impactful policy changes to end homelessness, for good.

About you

To be successful in this role you will have demonstrable experience of leading proactive programmes of policy work that are underpinned by evidence, informed by political intelligence, and developed with the meaningful involvement of people with lived experience of the issue. You will have a track record of building successful relationships with officials, politicians, and other stakeholders, and successfully influencing nationally and/or locally to achieve policy change.

Knowledge and understanding of housing and homelessness policy, and/or related policy areas is strongly desirable. You may have experience working in policy; public affairs and political influencing; research; the housing and homelessness sector.

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices, and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness, and people from all marginalised groups, communities, and backgrounds.

Working at Crisis 

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

  • Interest free loans for travel season ticket, cycle to work, and deposit to secure a tenancy. 
  • Pension scheme with an employer contribution of 8.5% 
  • 28 days’ annual leave
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity, shared parental, and adoption pay. 
  • Flexible working around the core hours 10am-4pm 
  • And more! (Full list of benefits available on website) 

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

When you join us, you will have the opportunity to join our staff diversity networks, which aim to champion issues across the organisation, enable staff to be their authentic and best selves and contribute to making Crisis a truly diverse organisation.
