Deadline for applications:

Our overarching aim for clients is that everyone moves on to successful, sustainable independent living.  Our ethos sets out the core values of the organisation.  These values include pro-action, constructive dialogue, responsibility and collaboration. Managers must be able to lead and model these behaviours, which reflect our commitment to a positive, open and accountable working culture.

Why we are recruiting

We are going through an exciting period of change, developing services which build on our previous successes.  We are also planning for growth.  The Hostel Manager role is central to this progress. We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, pro-active Hostel Manager who will lead services to the next stage of expansion.

What the role offers

The role is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to build on their management career success. It offers the opportunity to make your mark in a dynamic charity where no two days are the same.

Who the role is for

To succeed, you will have the management ability to motivate staff and empower teams to develop their skills. The ideal candidate will relish taking ownership for securing on-going improvements in service provision. The successful candidate will be highly-organised and capable of managing competing demands effectively yet calmly.  We also expect the successful candidate to have a real passion for working in an area supporting vulnerable adults with complex needs.
Previous experience of managing a homeless support service is not essential. The ability to quickly acquire the relevant theoretical knowledge is necessary.  Above all, your values will match ours.

What we offer

We value the broad range of skills and experiences that members of staff bring to the organisation. To help you get to know us better, our culture and processes, we will provide an extensive induction to Branches Hostel, and your role. Over time, we will provide a range of development and learning opportunities to support your growth.

We offer:

  • a competitive salary;
  • a contributory pension scheme;
  • a unique opportunity to lead a high-preforming service to the next level; and
  • a stimulating yet challenging environment
