Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.
About the Role
As part of our commitment to this, we have embarked on a multi-year, cross-organisational transformation programme with a vision to harness the power of data, digital and technology to help us end homelessness sooner. We are now looking for an experienced and highly collaborative Programme Delivery Manager - with in depth knowledge and experience of current digital project and delivery practice - to ensure the successful delivery of multiple workstreams targeted at making this vision a reality.
As our Programme Delivery Manager, you will put your previous experience of large-scale transformation programmes and expert knowledge of digital project and delivery management practice to good use in quickly building a consistent and aligned approach across the departments and teams working on our projects and workstreams, making sure we are always focusing on the right things and having an impact. You will also:
Have excellent communication and stakeholder management skills, which will help you build transparent and trust-based relationships across the organisation and with the Programme Board
Be delivery focused and able to work at pace
Be able to inspire and motivate the wider programme delivery team to operate as a community coming together around shared outcomes
Be able to coach and influence others to help mature our approach to project delivery across the programme
We want Crisis to be an inclusive employer which then reflects our members and the communities we work in. We want to offer opportunities to everyone regardless of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation or age. We particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience of homelessness.
Working at Crisis
As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:
- Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
- Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
- 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days
Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
When you join us you will have the opportunity to join our staff diversity networks, which aim to champion issues across the organisation, enable staff to be their authentic and best selves and contribute to making Crisis a truly diverse organisation.
We have 5 staff diversity networks which include Black, Asian and Ethnic people, LGBTQ+ people, those with Lived Experience of Homelessness, Women at Crisis and Disability Awareness.
