Head of Programmes
Are you inspired by the challenge of improving the experience of ageing? A good listener and communicator, with strong values, vision and the drive to make a difference to older people's lives? Concerned about inequality?
Do you have the skills to effectively implement time limited projects?
If so we would like to hear from you.
Care & Repair England is a small, national housing charity dedicated to improving the homes and lives of older people.
We are looking for a self-motivated person to head up our work with older people, particularly in London/ South East.
As our part time Head of Programmes you would lead on specific projects, particularly those working directly with older activists, groups, networks and forums, and also contribute to our work to improve the policy and practice links between housing, health and care.
We are looking for someone with strong interpersonal skills, able to work well with older people, a good listener, adept at bridging the layperson’s ideas/understanding of issues with wider social policy awareness and vision.
Very importantly, you need to have commitment and drive to improve older people’s lives.
Specific knowledge about housing policy and practice would be desirable, but if you meet our other priorities we can support learning about this subject.
