The North London Early Homelessness Prevention Service (EHPS) is an innovative, previously untried service, set up in September 2017 to test out a new model of delivering homelessness prevention services across North London.  It operates across six London Boroughs, and specifically works with a number of key agencies, providing households with assistance and advice as part of the government’s drive to prevent homelessness much earlier upstream.

Based in Islington, a Service Co-ordinator is being sought on a 1 year fixed term contract, starting on 1st April 2020.  The Co-ordinator will be responsible for directly managing, and overseeing all operational aspects relating to the provision of the services provided by a team of six  Homelessness Prevention Navigator Officers who are based in each of the boroughs. You will be expected to monitor the Service, ensuring targets are met, and make recommendations on the direction of the Service. You will also be responsible for managing the Service’s Homelessness Prevention Support Fund; the collation of data and the use of appropriate IT recording tools.

We are looking for a person with experience of managing the delivery of a high performing frontline housing service; has comprehensive knowledge of housing and homelessness legislation; with strong staff supervision skills. You must be able to demonstrate significant experience of initiating and building effective working relationships across a range of partners, and have proven analytical skills.

Applicant requirements

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
