Empty Homes Adviser

  • Part time
  • £25,875 pro-rata
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 28th July 2019

Closing date: Sunday 28th July 2019 at 11.30pm

Interviews: 7th August at Scotiabank House

Do you have lots of drive and initiative and proven experience in advice/customer service work involving a range of client bases? Then join Shelter Scotland as an Empty Homes Adviser and you could soon be playing an important role within our Scottish Empty Homes Partnership.

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

Part of an award-winning Communication & Policy Department, our Scottish Empty Homes Partnership is a Scottish Government funded project aimed at enabling private sector empty homes to be brought back into use across Scotland. The Partnership achieves this via a mix of policy work, capacity building, training, best practice sharing and awareness raising with councils, community groups and others. It’s also home to the national Empty Homes Advice Service - a public facing advice line that anyone can call for help or to report an empty home.

About the role

Your challenge will be to provide first level advice and referrals to empty home owners, those with concerns about empty homes, people interested in buying and renovating empty homes and empty homes practitioners. Indeed, we'll rely on you to deliver a professional, impartial, pragmatic and outcome focussed telephone and email advice service. As well as handling initial enquiries, you’ll get involved in some of the more complex enquiries or cases, for which you’ll be supported by a line manager and other members of the Scottish Empty Homes Partnership team.

About you

Commercially aware, client focused and totally at home collaborating with others, you have great organisational and time management skills too. What's more, you respect other people’s opinions, are comfortable answering enquiries both over the phone and via email and have the communication skills it takes to empower clients to self-help where appropriate. Proficiency using case management systems and Microsoft Office applications is important too, together with the ability to type.

Benefits

We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave, enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

Furniture Shop Manager

  • Full time
  • £22,183
  • Stockwell Street, Glasgow
  • Closing 28th July 2019

We are looking for someone who has experience of managing a team of volunteers and can demonstrate how they have empowered and motivated that team beyond expectations. With the added experience of being able to recruit and commit to developing a diverse team, in particular volunteers, you may be exactly the person we are looking for to become Furniture Shop Manager at our shop in Glasgow.

Your role will be varied and will challenge you but will provide you with stimulating and satisfying work. Our Furniture Shop Managers do not have a typical day and that's because they are continually seeking different opportunities to engage with the local community and increase their shop's contribution to Shelter's cause. This could be through co-ordinating and empowering the shop team to arrange a colouring competition for customers children to enter or a raffle with products donated from local businesses as prizes.

You will develop and encourage your own and your team's knowledge on the products that will attract those customers and donors through the door as well as continually developing your own and your team's knowledge of who Shelter are and what we do. It goes without saying that your volunteers, under your leadership, will run an exceptional shop.

How do I demonstrate I am who you are looking for?

· You will need to address and provide examples of the following in your application and at interview:

· Experience of managing a team of volunteers, including recruitment and development of that team

· Experience of providing excellent customer service, preferably in a face-to-face role

· Knowledge of charity retail and increasing donated sales is advantageous but not essential

· Knowledge of Shelter's work and why you wish to work for this charity.

How do we describe our Furniture Shop Managers?

If we were to describe our Furniture Shop Managers in 4 key words, they would be Confident, Inspiring, Enterprising and Influential. Our Furniture Shop Managers are happy to roll up their sleeves and lead by example and their aim is to develop and empower their team.

At Shelter we value our people and the skills and expertise they can bring to their role to help further Shelter's cause. As a Furniture Shop Manager, how you manage people is the most important skill we are looking for and it will be critical to your success in this role.

How is this all possible?

It's simple, with a strong, motivated and committed volunteer shop team behind you, anything is possible!

  • Dundee
  • Closing 3rd February 2019

Closing date: Sunday 3rd February 2019 at 11.30pm. Interviews: 7th and 8th February 2019

Do you have proven experience in community engagement and/or development work and excellent communication skills? Then join Shelter as a Senior Development Worker and you could soon be playing a key role within an exciting project that’s funded by The Social Innovation Fund and supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and Scottish Government.

Housing has become a national emergency that affects us all. At Shelter Scotland, we believe a safe home isn’t just a fundamental need - it should be a right. That’s why, more than ever, this year and beyond we are leading the way to a safe home. We’re going to rally the country to join us on our mission to rise up, speak with a united voice, pick up the pieces and fix the underlying problem. Will you join our Time for Change team and help us?

Time for Change focuses on the identification of local issues facing homeless people and, through involvement and wider consultation, co-produces the design and delivery of a local response to tackle those issues. The project is currently operating in Glasgow and a one-year pilot project was established in Dundee, which ran from October 2017. We have now secured funding to further develop this work in Dundee, as well as introducing this approach to Aberdeen and Edinburgh.

About the role

Based at our Community Hub in Dundee City Centre, your challenge will be to lead the project’s work and take accountability for its success. This will involve engaging with people with experience of homelessness across Dundee, developing opportunities for involvement and facilitating core groups and forums. We’ll also rely on you to build and maintain relationships with a variety of stakeholders and ensure the individuals you engage with are integral to service delivery. Seeing that your team, including paid staff and volunteers, deliver good customer care, person centred support and effective outcomes for clients will be vital too, as will supporting the Hub Manager to ensure contract and organisational targets are met and exceeded.

About you

This is an exciting and diverse role where you’ll be leading on the delivery of this workstream in Dundee, so you’ll definitely need to have developed and run administration systems, assisted with finances, including budgets, ideally in a customer-facing environment. You’ll also need excellent communication skills, not least as the role involves communicating with a variety of audiences. The success of this work is dependent on assertive outreach too, so you’ll need to be a confident and enthusiastic individual who can self-manage and self-motivate. The ability to manage and collate data, carry out analysis and write reports is a key skill. Whilst experience of working with people experiencing multiple and complex needs is desirable, it is not as important as your ability to engage with people, develop relationships and create opportunities for meaningful involvement.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.

Senior Empty Homes Adviser

  • Full time
  • £28,240
  • Edinburgh
  • Closing 4th February 2019

Closing date: 4 February 2019 at 11.30pm

Do you have experience of providing telephone and email advice, including housing related advice? Then join Shelter as Senior Empty Homes Adviser and help us bring empty homes back into use.

Housing has become a national emergency that affects us all. At Shelter Scotland, we believe a safe home isn’t just a fundamental need - it should be a right. That’s why, more than ever, this year and beyond we are leading the way to a safe home. We’re going to rally the country to join us on our mission to rise up, speak with a united voice, pick up the pieces and fix the underlying problem. Will you join our team and help us?

Part of an award-winning Communication & Policy Department, our Scottish Empty Homes Partnership (SEHP) is a Scottish Government funded project aimed at enabling private sector empty homes to be brought back into use across Scotland. The Partnership achieves this through a mix of policy work, capacity building, training, best practice sharing and awareness raising with councils, community groups and others. It is also home to the national Empty Homes Advice Service - a public facing advice line that anyone can call for help or to report an empty home.

About the role

You will take overall responsibility for the Empty Homes Advice Service, line manage an Adviser, review and develop the advice service and take on more complex cases and referrals. Our aim is to encourage councils that don’t currently have an empty homes function to develop one, so cultivating relationships with a range of Local Authorities will be a key aspect of this challenging role. And, when it comes to highlighting key themes, trends and barriers and best practice to allow the Partnership to shape policy, meet training needs and share success, again, we'll count on you to deliver.

About you

Proven experience of telephone and email advice is key, with empty homes experience an advantage, but not essential. Used to supervising staff, you're also able to work effectively with a wide variety of stakeholders, both statutory and non-statutory, including volunteers. What's more, you have a proactive, collaborative and results-driven approach. The ability to positively influence others and sometimes persuade them to change their views, is also required, together with a willingness to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas, methods or processes when required.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave (pro rata), the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.

  • Glasgow
  • Closing 6th February 2019

Shelter Scotland is looking for a dynamic individual with the motivation, ability and experience to manage, develop and deliver against our vision for the Glasgow Community Hub. Whilst the hub itself is a city centre building, the activity of the hub is centred on delivering the change that we want to see locally. The Hub Manager is central to driving that change through community engagement plans, staff development and supervision, local partnerships and effective working relationships with colleagues across Shelter Scotland to realise this ambition and to monitor its impact on effecting change.

The first will be the management and successful delivery of our core advice services managing relations and negotiations with funders and external stakeholders.

The third will be to drive and support local community campaigning and activism with increased and enhanced use of volunteers. Working closely with the Principal Solicitor, you will also support the Law Service to deliver strategic and systemic change to prevent homelessness in the city. And, when it comes to collaborating with other teams to grow our services, working on external relations, funding bids and local partnership opportunities or rolling out Shelter-wide quality initiatives, again, we’ll rely on you.

About you

To succeed, you’ll need a proven track record in a relevant area, including experience of developing and delivering services in the community and/or a regulated environment. We’ll also be looking for a flair for leading change and improving performance and a willingness to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas, methods and processes. Proactive, client-focused and commercially aware, you have respect for others’ opinions and the communication skills it takes to influence at all levels. What’s more, you’re proficient in the use of Microsoft Office applications and case management and reporting systems and have good typing skills.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.

The success of this work is dependent on assertive outreach too, so you’ll need to be a confident and enthusiastic individual who can self-manage and self-motivate. The ability to manage and collate data, carry out analysis and write reports is a key skill. Whilst experience of working with people experiencing multiple and complex needs is desirable, it is not as important as your ability to engage with people, develop relationships and create opportunities for meaningful involvement.

Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.

Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

About you

As well as a proven track record in a D2D/F2F role, we’ll be looking for a proactive and collaborative approach plus a flair for identifying emerging opportunities or taking action to avoid potential problems. A real customer focus, excellent communication and relationship building skills and the resilience to deal effectively with potentially difficult situations is also essential, as is the ability to lead change and improve performance.
