Depaul UK helps people around the UK who are homeless, vulnerable and disadvantaged, with a special focus on young people. We are a homelessness charity that leads Nightstop UK, the largest network of emergency accommodation for young people in the UK, making a difference to the lives of thousands of young people each year. We are unique, innovative and very passionate about what we do, working in the very heart of local communities.
It is an exciting time for Nightstop UK, which is embarking on a growth plan to ensure no young person sleeps in an unsafe place. Working in partnership with youth housing and community organisations around the country, last year the Nightstop network provided 13,134 safe places to sleep to young people all over the UK, in more than 610 volunteer host homes - and we want to do more.
The Network Officer is pivotal to the success of Nightstop UK, ensuring a high-quality service is delivered to young people and volunteers, by supporting new partners joining the network. The role does not directly work with young people but instead is the operational contact for local Nightstop services providing them with the tools, support and advice to deliver the service effectively.
The role will involve carrying out Depaul UK’s commitment to successfully grow and develop a Nightstop network. The scope of the role will involve the following responsibilities:
- Strong stakeholder management with a range of partners
- Experience of quality management / assurance
- An understanding of the challenges homeless young people face
- An understanding of volunteer management
In return, we can offer a range of employee benefits including; competitive salary, five weeks' annual holiday plus bank holidays (rising to six weeks plus bank holidays), contributory pension scheme, life assurance and childcare voucher scheme.
