Development Manager – Inspiring Change Manchester
This post is funded through Big Lottery Fund's £112m initiative to support people with multiple needs.
We’re looking for a results-driven individual with a proven ability to influence existing services in order to meet changing needs and priorities, to join us as a Development Manager and help deliver the vision and strategy of a vital city-wide initiative.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
Inspiring Change Manchester is a partnership, led by Shelter, with an ambitious vision that people who experience multiple needs can achieve significant and lasting improvements in their lives. How? By transforming the city’s systems and services. The programme involves a diverse mix of partners and stakeholders, including people with lived experience of multiple needs. We believe that people living in Manchester who have multiple and complex needs can achieve real, lasting growth and fulfilment. To make our vision possible however, we need to inspire a wide range of people across the city to change their beliefs and their behaviour. You’ll help ensure we do just that.
About the role
As well as helping the Programme Manager fulfil the Programme's vision and strategy, you’ll work with our partners to deliver the commissioned services, support service delivery and disseminate best practice. You’ll also be responsible for the marketing and communications of Inspiring Change Manchester across the partnership and sector through a variety of means, including website content and social media, often working alongside Shelter's central team. Leading and developing the co-production and membership development aspects of Inspiring Change Manchester will be important too, as will influencing commissioners to embed change.
We’re looking for a proactive individual with the ability to challenge the status quo and influence system change in a services, social policy or campaigning environment. You’ll also need proven experience of managing relationships with stakeholders to drive systems and service change for people experiencing multiple and complex needs. Happy to represent Inspiring Change Manchester to multiple audiences, you have excellent analytical and communication skills and experience of using research findings and data to influence change. What’s more, you're as comfortable managing and motivating a team as you are using a range of project management tools and techniques to get the job done. And, if you can bring a strong understanding of service delivery, service design and funding, even better.
Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business. Shelter is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.
