About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it. 

Crisis Skylight Brent works with people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, supporting them with education and training, as well as advice on housing, employment, and health. Alongside our frontline service offer, we develop, support and lead strategic and partnership projects to deliver positive change for homeless people in Brent. 

We will be moving to new premises in Brent in Autumn 22 and after recent consultation, we are also planning to transform our services to align better with the evolving needs of the people we work with and with Crisis’ new vision for its services. Those changes will support our wider work around collaboration and partnership. It is therefore an exciting time to join our team and play a part in supporting this transition and strengthening the case for a housing-led approach to ending homelessness. 

About the role 

As Housing Led Practice Co-ordinator you will be responsible for co-ordinating our work with partners locally including our regular Homelessness Forum and Community of Practice meetings, contributing to more effective and impactful partnerships across statutory and voluntary sector agencies in Brent. 

This is a fixed-term role, for 6 months with possibility of extension.  

About you 

To be successful in this role you will have  

  • Good understanding of what is essential in developing effective and positive collaboration with internal and external partners   

  • A high level of experience and understanding of the provision of services to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and how housing led approaches will help to end their homelessness 

  • Ability to communicate effectively when addressing a variety of audiences in person, on the phone via email and when giving presentations to groups 

  • Be flexible and adaptable in response to changing organisational needs and priorities

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good.
