Role Profile

 

 

The Role:

The Greater Manchester Homelessness and Rough Sleeping Prevention and Reduction Strategy will improve the life chances of vulnerable people across the region. We are looking for a dynamic and pro-active individual who will drive and support the development of this strategy, ensuring there is integration of effort and programmes across GM.

The role will manage the development of a Greater Manchester strategy to prevent and reduce homelessness and rough sleeping. The principles of the White Paper on Public Service Reform will be integral to the delivery of this strategy. 

You will work with partners and central government to secure funding to continue to develop and embed an effective framework for preventing and tackling homelessness and rough sleeping across the sub-region.

 

 

Key Responsibilities:

·  Leading on the development and implementation of early intervention and prevention activity and ensure effective engagement and collaboration across all relevant partner agencies.

·  Proactively prompting and leading in a multi-agency environment to ensure early intervention in the prevention of homelessness and rough sleeping.

·  Bringing together the GM proposition.  This will include leading the design and integration with local models, identifying and progressing opportunities for greater collaboration at a GM level, and for liaising and negotiating with DCLG on the terms of the proposition.

·  Oversee the development of local bespoke research, policy development and data analysis.    A key feature of the role will be the requirement to maintain positive relationships with all 10 GM local authorities and wider partners and maintaining their effective engagement and involvement through the process.

 

The GMHPR will form part of the approach towards the improvement of life chances of vulnerable people across Greater Manchester. The post holder will therefore be responsible for ensuring the integration of this pilot and its aim with other GMCS programmes and workstreams both currently and in the future.
