Would you like to be at the heart of delivering a vision for South Lanarkshire where ‘Homelessness is significantly reduced with homeless households moving to a settled home as quickly as possible’.

Our new Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan sets an ambitious programme to achieve this vision and we are looking to recruit an individual with the knowledge, experience and drive required to manage the process.

South Lanarkshire is a diverse area and the factors which lead to someone becoming homeless are many and varied. Locally partners are clear on and committed to working collaboratively to achieve a step change in both preventing homelessness and helping  people achieve the housing and support they need when it does occur.

Do you have:
• experience of delivering homelessness or housing services, initiatives or programmes
o a firm grasp of the policy and practice context in relation to homelessness
o experience of working collaboratively
o the skills and experience necessary to manage a complex and diverse project
If so then we have an exciting opportunity

We are looking to recruit a Strategy Coordinator who will project manage the delivery of our Rapid Rehousing Transition Plan. The Coordinator will be working with a diverse range of partners, liaising with senior officers, elected members, communities and a wide range of stakeholders to ensure that the actions set out in the plan are progressed and that the priority objectives are delivered.
