Head of Housing Operations
£42,832 - £44,562
Come and join the team that turns around the lives of homeless young people.
City YMCA London is an independent charity affiliated to the YMCA movement that was founded in 1844. Our work is based on the ethos of the international movement and we work across some of London's most deprived boroughs in Islington, Haringey, Tower Hamlets, Newham, Barnet and Hackney as well as the City of London.
We passionately believe that every young person should have the opportunity to build a future of their own choosing.
Over the past fifty years we have helped over 30,000 isolated, homeless young people struggling with family breakdown, school exclusion, poor mental health, and drug and alcohol dependencies.
The Head of Housing Operations is a newly established role and you will be joining us at an incredible moment in our history.
We recently completed a merger (October 2020) and we operate services across six London Boroughs and the City of London. Further to this, City YMCA London are on the cusp of opening a brand new, flagship centre for homeless young people called LandAid House.
Our LandAid House site is due to complete by Spring 2021 and will offer the opportunity for 146 young people to move off the streets and sofas and into a safe place they can call home. With it, they will have the opportunity to create a future of their own choosing. It is the first purpose-built accommodation designed for homeless young people in London for over a decade! We are very proud to be at the forefront of this change for young London.
This new role holds responsibility for operational management of housing services across our five sites, including our flagship provision at LandAid House, and to lead the development of a Housing team that embodies a culture of high-quality and business focussed service provision.
Among your immediate priorities as our new Head of Housing Operations will be supporting the post-merger review of housing services, looking for areas of synergy, revising systems and processes, engaging the staff in the creation of a one-team culture, whilst recognising and valuing the differences in provision that reflect differences in local contexts.
You will also play a key role in bringing on-stream LandAid House, working collaboratively with Estates and Major Projects directorate.
