The Trust provides a Personal Transition Service (PTS) for people who need more than just a roof over their head. As a proven leader with fantastic communication skills you will manage a very talented team of community based coaches who partner with people experiencing tough times. People that may be homeless or leaving care, exiting prison or maybe they have a safe place to live but need a short term bespoke intervention to help them back onto their feet. Your Coach team will engage people to help develop personal and individual assets so that those same people have increased resilience and determination to overcome adversity.
Your coaching team, with their volunteers, are frontline workers who co-design bespoke activities for people going through a range of tough life situations. As their Asset Manager you will bring your proven management qualities, leadership and tenacity, ensuring that the people the organisation work with have the absolute best possible experience and can transit confidently out of deficit based situations. You will need to strongly identify with personalised strength based engagement; solution focused business outcomes and advantaged thinking.
The Trust team are not a traditional homeless charity and the management team are not conventional. You will need to be creative, inventive, have an eye for detail, have the ability to adapt to changing environments, see beyond the crisis, listen through all the noise and, if that’s not enough, you thrive when the pace is fast, unpredictable and sometimes disordered. You will be calm, good humoured and always amazing. Our client want the right person who is going to bring added value to an already amazing team.
