Do you have proven experience of leading an employability, learning or involvement programme for people with lived experience, and an excellent understanding of barriers to employment faced by individuals with lived experience? Then join Shelter as a GROW Programme Manager and you could soon be playing a pivotal role in the heart of our Lived Experience Insight Team.

About Shelter

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the team

Part of our Equity, Inclusion & Culture Directorate, the Lived Experience Insight Team delivers a programme of local and national involvement activities to ensure the views of those affected by the housing emergency shape and influence all of Shelter’s work. People with lived experience are involved in a range of different ways, through forums and events in local communities, sharing their story as part of campaigns, and speaking out about the issues that affect them. This helps ensure that our services and campaigns are developed alongside local communities and so that lived experience informs everything we do.

This role will focus more specifically on our GROW (Getting real opportunities of work) Traineeship Programme – a programme designed to provide 12-18 months employment opportunities for people who have experienced multiple disadvantages and exclusion. The programme is focussed on breaking down barriers to employment by embedding lived experience within the workforce and supporting systems change. These placements provide a range of support, learning and development to really support our GROW Trainees within their working environments. All of our traineeships also include a ‘move on’ phase with the goal of supporting trainees to secure future employment. Our GROW Traineeship programme is key to Shelter’s strategic aims of putting people with lived experience of the housing emergency at the centre of everything we do.

About the role

This role will lead the delivery of Shelter’s national GROW Programme, and we’ll rely on you to oversee the programme and employability focussed activity, ensuring that the right structures and resources required to facilitate our traineeships are in place. You’ll also ensure that the programme is centred around lived-experience, as well as anti-racism and inclusion principles. What’s more, you’ll work closely with colleagues across Shelter, to build on learning from the programme and further expand our employability offer across Shelter.

You’ll support your team to not only meet their objectives and develop their skills but to deliver high quality well-being and development opportunities for our GROW Trainees. What’s more, you’ll be comfortable to provide expert advice on lived experience employability, creating resources, guidance and training and also supporting stakeholders to embed lived experience across their work. Empowering our GROW Trainees to use their experiences in order to influence the design and delivery of Shelter’s work will also be a part of your role, as will scoping opportunities for GROW Placements across the organisation providing opportunities to further embed lived experience. As part of the day-to-day role as a GROW Programme Manager, you’ll also ensure we follow our HR and health and safety policies, act on safeguarding concerns, take an anti-racist approach and lead on our GROW Recruitment processes – all an exciting part of this new role.

About you

With experience of managing and leading on an employability, learning and development, or lived experience programme, you’ll be passionate about ensuring people facing exclusion and disadvantages are supported and included in the work we do. To succeed, you’ll be a highly organised individual, managing projects, and implementing work plans. What’s more, you’ll be a confident leader with people management experience, and an ability to influence and build successful relationships with a range of stakeholders.

You will also have knowledge of employability best practice and the ability to apply this to our GROW Programme management and development to make sure we continue to support our GROW Trainees. As well as this, you’ll be competent in using a range of IT to support your work, and experiences of budget management would be desirable.

We encourage those with lived experience of homelessness or poor housing to apply for this role.
