This is a superb opportunity to lead Simon on the Streets: An independent charity offering emotional and practical support for homeless and vulnerable people across Leeds, Bradford and Kirklees for over 20 years.

We’re now seeking a credible and inspiring leader to:

- Lead, motivate and develop a small, hugely committed Outreach and Head Office team – as well as our extended volunteer base.
- Work effectively with the Trustee Board to ensure we sustain the probity and core purpose of the charity going forward.

Credible candidates will bring: 

- Genuine passion and empathy for the needs of the homeless
- Significant Leadership experience ideally within the not-for-profit sector –charity, housing or similar organisations preferred.
- A positive and proactive approach to motivating and developing teams
- The commitment to drive vision, values and purpose throughout the organisation
- Presence and energy to represent ‘Simon’ and challenge perceptions in the wider community

Our profile has never been higher – raising awareness and funds through Sleep Outs, Charity events – and most recently bringing key local and national players together by means of a hugely well received Homelessness Seminar.
