St Mungo's

  • South East London

We have an exciting opportunity for an inspirational leader to take up the management of two very different schemes. Semi-Independent Housing works with 77 clients across 14 different properties, both self-contained and shared, and is the step before accessing independent living. Grange Road provides temporary accommodation for 32 single homeless people who require short term accommodation while awaiting longer terms suitable accommodation or assessment by LB Southwark’s homeless person’s unit.

The measure of success in this role will be to remotely manage and lead two teams spread across Southwark whilst managing multiple priorities and delivering on organisational and contractual key targets. You will be highly organised and self-motivated to lead a team to achieve this; for example ensuring a structure of the routine completion of H&S requirements, staff supervision and appraisal is maintained.

Southwark Council is currently going through a process of change and you will be expected to work closely with them as well as with different internal departments to produce reports to identify areas for improvement whilst maximising the use of existing resources. The successful individual will have experience of working with homeless or vulnerable clients, experience of joint working, and developing and sustaining good partnerships with external agencies including statutory and non-statutory providers.

As an experienced and dynamic manager you will be consistent and confident in identifying and addressing underperformance. Equally, you will employ a strategy for rewarding good performance, have the knowledge to provide advice and will motivate the team through a coaching and consultative approach.

In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and flexible working 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.

If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless, we would love to hear from you.
