Are you passionate about supporting people out of homelessness?

​HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity and every year we work with around 1,000 local people to help them overcome or avoid homelessness.

We are looking for people who bring a range of skills to the organisation to help us meet our mission. Many of our vacancies don’t need direct experience just kindness, compassion and transferable skills which may have been gained through lived experience or volunteering.

 

It is an exciting time to be joining HARP. The organisation has undergone significant change and growth over the past twelve months and we have ambitious plans for the future which will continue to transform lives.

About The Role

JOB REF: DDCO01

Do you believe that homelessness should be eradicated?

HARP is Southend-on-Sea’s leading homelessness charity. On average we help around 1,000 local people every year to overcome or avoid homelessness. In addition to providing essential short-term emergency shelter, food, clothing and washing facilities, we work to identify the root causes of homelessness, creating tailored support for each person’s circumstances. We achieve success by providing structure, purpose and training opportunities, and by providing longer-term supported housing, empowering people to take steps to leave homelessness behind and ultimately live independently in the community.
