Llamau is daring to imagine a world without homelessness – will you help us to create it?
Llamau’s mission is to end youth homelessness and homelessness for women in Wales. It’s a big ambition and to some people it might seem impossible, but we know that if we all work together, homelessness genuinely doesn’t have to exist.
We’re looking for a passionate, talented and tenacious individual to join Team Llamau as an Events Officer.
At Llamau we believe that no young person or vulnerable woman should ever have to experience homelessness. Our mission is to eradicate homelessness for young people and vulnerable women. But for thousands of the most vulnerable people in Wales, homelessness is a frightening reality.
30 years ago Llamau was founded to provide homeless teenagers with a safe place to stay. Since then, we have supported over 67,000 young people, women and their children who are either homeless or facing homelessness.
Many people think the job of a homelessness charity will be to provide accommodation – a safe place to stay.
But it is very clear to us that for most people who are facing homelessness, their problems are far more complex than a lack of permanent shelter.
That’s why we treat everyone who needs our support as an individual. We recognise their unique strengths and needs and make sure that they are supported to rebuild their futures.
We are a values-led organisation which puts the people we support at the heart of the organisation. Our values mean that we can offer the highest quality support and empathy. Our values are:
We Don’t Give Up
You’ll have good experience of successfully planning and managing complex high profile events and you will be able to use your organisational and creative skills to shape and manage Llamau’s fundraising events programme. You’ll be target-driven with excellent attention to detail and will be motivated to deliver a continuously improved fundraising events programme.
You’ll be working alongside passionate and supportive colleagues in a rewarding environment, where you’ll be making a huge contribution to creating a Wales without homelessness, every single day.
