Project Support Officer Jobs Vacancy at Shelter Manchester Jobs Details:
Interviews to be held: 12 & 14 December
We’re looking for a well-organised individual with excellent office administrative skills and experience of developing and maintaining databases and other office systems, to join us as a Project Support Officer and play a vital role in a brand new service.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We’re here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
About the Service
Shelter will deliver the service as part of the GM Homes Partnership, a newly established 3 year DCLG funded social impact bond project to support entrenched rough sleepers. The GM Homes partnership consists of public, private and housing partners working together to deliver support and homes to those most in need across Greater Manchester.
We are looking for people to come and help us realise our vision of supporting 200 rough sleepers to start a new life in the right kind of home with the right support, involving them at every step of the way.
The GM Homes partnership provides an opportunity to try out new and different approaches to tackling long term homelessness, which we can use to inform how we deliver services in the future with and for our most vulnerable residents. We’ll also involve people with lived experience of homelessness in the service’s delivery. This varied and interesting part-time role offers a great opportunity to be involved in developing an exciting new initiative.
About the Role
Providing office-based support to the team that engages with people who have become entrenched in a cycle of rough sleeping is the challenge that awaits you here. Based at our HUB in the centre of Manchester, we’ll rely on you to help develop and maintain a database of information and evidence about the work we do with service users. You will work closely with other delivery partners, funders and GMCA, to ensure we have up to date and accurate information about the people we support and the work we do to help them. You’ll also be responsible for overseeing the maintenance of our shared case management system and implementing work streams to support the management team. Put simply, you’ll be key to seeing that things run smoothly.
Experience of administrative systems, office management and project management processes are key. We’ll also be looking for a proven ability to prepare management or financial reports and perform basic analysis within agreed timescales. Forward thinking and flexible, you're someone who actively supports the introduction of new ideas, methods and processes to working practices. What's more, you're structured, calm and organised, proficient using Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, email and internet and keen to help a brand new and dynamic service develop.
Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave (pro rata), the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
We shortlist applicants for interview by matching the details given on the completed application form against both the role description and the person specification. We’ll be looking for clear evidence to show that your experience, skills and knowledge match those set out in the person specification and role description. All parts of the role description and person specification should be clearly addressed in the questionnaire section as indicated, as information not given or not made explicit on the application form cannot be taken into account in the shortlisting process. Please note that CVs alone are not accepted.
We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
Shelter is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of clients, in particular children, young people and vulnerable adults, and expects all staff, workers and volunteers to share this commitment.
