At Thames Reach we are committed to helping homeless and vulnerable people to live in decent homes, build supportive relationships and lead fulfilling lives. Our vision is to end street homelessness and our aim is to achieve the highest standards and effectiveness in service delivery to vulnerable people.

We are looking for an organised, motivated and engaged person for one of our Hostels, supporting people with complex needs to sustain their hostel bed space, engage with support and move to independent accommodation.

This is a great opportunity for a worker with some experience to move into a management role overseeing a busy, high profile frontline service that is vital in our efforts to reduce homelessness across London.

You will be responsible for directly managing the staff and managing relationships with partner organisations, as well as ensuring services finances are well managed and they are compliant with the relevant policies and legislation.

You will be responsible for managing services performance against their contract, monitoring and reporting to funders on performance against targets. This will require you to be outcome focussed and able to foster a culture of high performance and continual striving to improve upon successes throughout your team.

You will oversee the day to day management of the hostel, report incidents to senior management and commissioners and ensure staff are aware of and working to health and safety guidelines.

You will play a key role in the development of this service and your work will influence the future of service provision across the UK.

Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect, and celebrate diversity. We welcome and encourage applicants from all sections of the community regardless of their history of homelessness, sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, or religious belief.
