Housing Manager - Mental Health
Prospectus is pleased to be collaborating with a specialist housing charity in South East London that provides supported housing services to individuals with mental health needs. They are currently looking to recruit a Housing Manager to lead a team across a cluster of properties in Lewisham.
As their Housing Manager, you will work to provide a high quality accommodation-based support service to single homeless customers with complex support needs. You will help to lead and direct staff to ensure that the highest standard of service is delivered to customers, and will set clear expectations of quality standards, work plans and targets. You will have sound financial management of the service budget and will monitor income and expenditure to ensure that the project keeps within set targets and that income is maximised. You will also maintain effective relationships with external agencies to ensure that service users are fully supported, and will represent the organisation to external bodies as appropriate.
To be successful in this position you will have previous experience of supporting vulnerable people with complex needs to achieve independent living, and will have a clear understanding of the needs of individuals with mental health and housing needs. You will have strong leadership and communication skills and will be able to demonstrate that you have led a team before. You will also have experience of multi-agency working, and will have demonstrable experience of managing budgets and following financial procedures. Overall, you will be a strong, dedicated leader with a clear passion for supporting vulnerable service users back on the road to independency.
Due to the location of properties, a full driving licence with access to a car would be preferred, but not essential.
