We are seeking a highly motivated and creative individual with experience of working with people who have a variety of needs, to join our committed, busy and dynamic team in Hackney.

The Hackney Accommodation service has been set up to provide short term accommodation to up to 60 individuals who have been sleeping rough, in and around the local community of Hackney. The service will provide on side support and facilitate move-on into suitable accommodation for each client.

SHP (Single Homeless Project) is one of London’s leading homelessness prevention charities and a dynamic and growing organisation changing 8,000 lives every year across London - from supporting people in crisis, to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment.

As the Team Manager, you will be responsible for the day to day running of the service and the direct supervision of staff in mixed roles. You will also be responsible for both the delivery and oversight of high-quality support, with a particular focus on ensuring clients are being prepared and supported to move on into appropriate accommodation.

The ideal candidate will be highly organised, proactive and adept at developing and maintaining relationships with internal and external stakeholders. You will also have experience of managing staff with the ability to motivate and encourage a team to perform effectively. Additionally, you will have a good understanding of working with vulnerable people who have been rough sleeping and an understanding of the trauma that could be associated with that.

If you want to be part of a high-performing service, that uses various approaches to deliver great outcomes for clients and you want to join in shaping and preventing rough sleeping in Hackney, then we want to hear from you.

At SHP we welcome and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and are committed to having a workforce that is made up of diverse individuals, skills, experiences and abilities. Due to current under –representation at management level, we particularly encourage applications from individuals within our Black and Asian communities.

This post will require an Enhanced DBS check to be processed for the successful applicant.

Our attractive benefits package includes:
– A salary increase after successfully completing six months.
– A 37.5 hour working week including flexible working hours (core hours are 10am – 4pm) in non-accommodation services
– 25 days annual leave, increasing annually to the maximum 30 days (plus paid Bank Holidays),
– A contributory pension scheme: SHP will contribute the equivalent of 5% of your annual salary
– Staff Health Cash Plan and discounts scheme
– Comprehensive and integrated training programme designed specifically to develop the skills and knowledge involved in our work

SHP is actively committed to equal opportunities and the promotion of diversity and inclusion, in all of our services and workplaces. We are also Disability Confident Committed, a Stonewall Diversity Champion and are IIP Silver accredited.
