Main purpose of role: Develop and build relationships with frontline staff and organisations across different sectors supporting people experiencing homelessness

This is a key role in our rapidly expanding Charity. You will need to be able to self-manage, use your initiative and plan your time and workloads which will get busy at times and require some juggling skills! You will be able to work in the office or remotely from home. You will use your sector knowledge to identify key people and networks to draw on for support, seek out interesting facilitators to speak at our events and identify opportunities to setup and develop local networks across the UK.

The main purpose of the Partnerships Officer role will be to develop and build relationships with frontline staff and organisations across different sectors supporting people experiencing homelessness. You will provide support to the Partnerships Manager to manage working relationships with 5 of our current Network Partners, take the lead in planning our Annual Conference and two regional conferences with capacity support provided by the Charity administrator. You will make decisions for signing off applications for funding to our shadowing, events and training funds and draw on feedback from staff to develop theme focuses for training events. A key part of your role will be helping us provide on-the-ground support to frontline staff via setting up Local Networks. These might be thematic, or place based, be online and/or in person. Local Networks support links to frontline workers to network, share expertise and access training and support in their areas.

We are really keen to hear from people currently working in a frontline role and looking for a new challenge.
