To be successful you will need strong management experience with previous experience working in a supported housing unit and working with vulnerable people. To be successful you must have strong communication skills and the ability to lead a team. Furthermore, although this role is Monday-Friday, you must have a degree of flexibility within your working week.

What you'll get in return

You will be working for an organisation who not only helps their tenants, but is strongly set on developing their staff.
