An exciting opportunity has come up to join the Action Foundation team and lead the development of our Action Hosting project. Action Hosting matches volunteers offering a spare room in their home with destitute asylum seekers to provide temporary accommodation and support.
We are recruiting for an experienced individual to co-ordinate the day-to-day delivery of the Action Hosting Scheme on a part-time basis (21 hours per week). This role involves training volunteer hosts and matching them with destitute asylum seekers (guests) in need of accommodation, supporting guests, evaluating/monitoring the scheme and giving support to ongoing work to publicise the scheme to attract future hosts.
The successful candidate will be an excellent team player, equally able to work alone, with experience of providing support to vulnerable people and have an appetite for making a big difference to the lives of our clients. You will have excellent organisational and communication skills and experience also of working with a wide variety of stakeholders.
Closing date for applications is: 9am 23rd October 2017
