Job Description

We're currently recruiting for a small number of new Trustees who are passionate about tackling homelessness and want to support a well-established charity extend its impact.

What do we do?

Street Support Network connects local people and organisations in order to support those experiencing, and at risk of experiencing homelessness.

Our website is an online hub to find out about homelessness, see what support is available, and see what you can do to help.

In addition to hosting the website, we work extensively offline, connecting people to co-produce better solutions, facilitating conversations and co-ordinating action across the sector.

Who are we looking for?

We'd love to work with collaborators, preferably with experience of charity governance, working with or as part of the board of a not-for-profit organisation, or with public sector experience. We’d also be very keen to hear from people with lived experience of homelessness.

But please don’t let a lack of experience hold you back from applying. We know that skills and knowledge don’t always come from previous roles. Often, it’s less about what you have done, and more about what you can do. We’re looking for someone who fits in with our close-knit team and will help us operate and innovate.

We'd especially like to talk to people who know about:

  • Fundraising / Income Generation
  • Finance
  • Website Development
  • Human Resources
  • Connecting with Businesses
  • Public Sector areas such as NHS or Local Government 

Why become a Street Support Network Trustee?

Being a Trustee can be incredibly rewarding - and we think the way we work is little bit different:

We are very values driven and not too formal. Everyone really cares about what we do and homelessness more generally.

We are a small team, with a small number of Trustees, so everyone has a voice and the opportunity to make a real, lasting impact.

Trustee Terms

If your application is successful, we see the first few months being a time where we can both get a feel for whether we’d like to make the position permanent.

Throughout this period our Chair will check in to discuss how things are going, receive feedback, and provide any support needed. Our meetings are usually monthly and take place online. We aim to meet face-to-face once or twice a year in Manchester. The role is voluntary but reasonable expenses will be reimbursed.

 

Closing date: 31st July 2024
