Do you believe everyone should have a place to call home and the chance to lead a fulfilling life?

HARP is a growing Southend-on-Sea based charity working to prevent homelessness and help vulnerable and socially excluded people to transform their lives. Each day our staff and volunteers work with individuals to tackle the underlying causes of homelessness, such as poor mental health or drug and alcohol dependency. From supporting people in crisis to helping them take the final steps towards independence and employment, we make a difference to over 1,000 lives every year.

As a charitable registered provider of short-term social housing operating in Southend-on-Sea, we believe everyone should have a home of their own. At times individuals may require support from HARP and other agencies to maintain a tenancy and avoid a return to homelessness.

We currently manage 214 bed spaces in our emergency and short-term hostels, employ over 90 full and part time staff, and are supported by over 120 volunteers.

Are you a motivated and passionate individual looking to make a real difference in your local community? Do you have experience of working in homelessness and housing and want to put this to good use helping others less fortunate? If so, we would love you to join our team as a Coordinator.

The ideal candidate will have substantial experience working in the homelessness field sector or supported housing environments. Excellent people management skills, self-motivated and a first-rate team player.
