At Homeless Link, we understand the unique challenges of recruiting for homelessness organisations. That's why we've created a range of resources to support the sector in navigating the recruitment process effectively.

Our Resources Include:

1. Job Descriptions:
Finding the right candidates starts with clear job descriptions. We've developed standard job descriptions tailored to common roles within the homelessness sector. Whether you're hiring advice workers, Project Managers, or even Chief Executives and trustees, our templates are designed to help save you time and attract the best people for the role. 

2. DBS Guidance:
Navigating the intricacies of Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks is essential when recruiting for sensitive roles. Our overview provides guidance on the different types of checks available to support compliance throughout the recruitment process.

3. Inclusive Recruitment Tips:
Diversity and inclusion are fundamental values within the homelessness sector. Our inclusive recruitment tips offer practical guidance on how to reach underrepresented candidates and promoting inclusivity throughout the hiring process.

For organisations new to employment practices, crafting robust recruitment policies is crucial. Homeless Link's consultancy service can support you in drafting policies and reviewing practices to ensure fairness, transparency, and compliance with legal requirements.
