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 deliver high quality, effective services to vulnerable people.

We are currently recruiting Senior Practitioners to develop our innovative services throughout London. Managing and inspiring colleagues working with people who are currently or at risk of rough sleeping.

Our Senior Practitioners play a pivotal part in our inspiring work, helping homeless people get off the streets, back on their feet and looking forward to a brighter future.

This is a great opportunity for workers with some experience to move into management roles overseeing busy, high profile frontline services that are 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 be supported and trained to develop and improve your skills and knowledge. You will receive regular supervision from experienced managers who will both guide your work and encourage and facilitate your personal development.

As Senior Practitioner you will:

-Be organised, have the necessary IT skills to collect, collate and interpret information.

-Be committed to providing a high standard service, supporting and inspiring colleagues to do the same.

-Have excellent communication skills, ability to develop professional relationships and be able to problem solve.

-Take health and safety seriously to ensure you, your team and the people you meet are safe.

-Have an enthusiastic approach to taking part in training and acquiring new skills.

-Be able to provide a flexible and responsive service to meet the needs of people at risk or currently rough sleeping

We will:

-Support you to develop your knowledge and skills and advance in your career.

-Involve you in development of services and resolving rough sleeping.

-Offer a generous contributory pension scheme, tuition aid and a wide range of training courses and opportunities.

-Give you 29 days holiday and 8 paid bank holidays.

Thames Reach is committed to achieving a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we serve. We value, respect, and celebrate diversity.
