Do you have proven experience at a senior level of project development work, either gained directly with empty homes, or in related areas such as regeneration, housing investment or housing strategy? Then join Shelter Scotland as National Project Manager – Scottish Empty Homes Partnership and you could soon be playing a leading role in project managing the work of this vital initiative.

About Shelter Scotland

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet over a million people in Scotland struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter Scotland we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter Scotland and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the Team

Part of an award-winning Communication & Policy Department, our Scottish Empty Homes Partnership (SEHP) is a Scottish Government funded project aimed at enabling private sector empty homes to be brought back into use across Scotland. The Partnership achieves this via a mix of policy work, capacity building, training, best practice sharing and awareness raising with councils, community groups and others. It’s also home to the national Empty Homes Advice Service – a public facing advice line that anyone can call for help or to report an empty home.

About the role

Promoting the importance of bringing empty homes back into use as one of a number of ways of addressing housing supply shortfalls in Scotland is just one of the challenges awaiting you here.

Acting as the public face of the SEHP, we’ll look to you to provide strategic direction and project management to the SEHP in Phase 2 and ensure that the aims and objectives set by the Scottish Government are met. You’ll also be responsible for helping the Government to implement its Housing to 2040 strategy and commitment to empty homes aspects of a National Acquisition Plan.

Supporting local authorities and other parties to take a data driven strategic approach to empty homes work will be important too, as will encouraging the development of consistent evidence-base methods for recording the scale and nature of empty homes locally and overseeing the delivery of SEHP funded Kickstarter projects run by local authorities and third sector organisations. And, when it comes to line managing members of the team, again, we’ll count on you.

About you

As well as related experience that includes managing and delivering contracts, partnerships or services, you have a good understanding of the housing policy landscape. You’re also aware of the issues experienced by those impacted by bad housing and homelessness and which contribute to the housing emergency.

Excellent leadership and management skills, evidenced by a track record of supporting and line managing staff, are important too, as is the ability to engage and influence a range of stakeholders. Indeed, you’re great at proactively building key relationships, taking a strategic approach to developing new ones and ensuring they’re aligned with key strategic priorities.

What’s more, you’re used to managing budgets and financial reports and have a demonstrable ability to understand and apply relevant health and safety, safeguarding and data protection legislation and policy.
