An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a fantastic homelessness charity in South London.
The organisation is a small, community charity making a big impact on ending rough sleeping in Lewisham. They offer a range of services for homeless people, from those sleeping rough, to those who are vulnerably housed; sofa surfing or living in temporary accommodation. People who have nowhere to live can come to their Gateway centre to have a shower, do laundry, eat breakfast and can also access healthcare from visiting nurses, mental health workers and health professionals.
The organisation's Advice and Support service offers guidance so that people can identify what help they are entitled to through housing provision and benefits, and maintains strong links with private landlords willing to accept former rough sleepers as tenants. They also provide individual support, including accompanying people to appeals and court hearings.
They are looking for a Chief Executive Officer to join the team on a permanent basis.
Location: Lewisham South London
Salary: circa 60,000 per annum plus benefits
In your role as CEO you will support the Board of Trustees in the development of long-term strategies and the direction of travel for the charity, ensuring the long-term sustainability of the organisation.
