An exciting opportunity as a Hostel Manager has arisen within Adref to manage one of our Homeless Hostels. To succeed, you will have experience of staff management and the ability to supervise and motivate staff.

About Us:

Tenancy Support Officer x 2

Adref is a registered charity and limited company devoted to eradicating homelessness in the South Wales Valleys.  We have been in existence since 1990 and manage a range of support services that help people develop skills that will avoid them becoming homeless and accommodation for people that do not have housing.

We offer people rewarding, long-term careers, and that might be responsible for our very low staff turnover and absenteeism.

People that work for us are committed to the objectives of their project and the organisation in general.  They work in partnership with other staff, projects and divisions; and go all out to deliver benchmark services to our service users.

We look for people that are willing to learn; are flexible and share our passion for making a difference to the lives of our service users.

Job Role:

You should also be able to plan and manage a budget and ensure service outcomes and targets are met.  Ideally you would also have experience of working with vulnerable homeless or disadvantaged people and an understanding of their housing and support needs.  The successful candidate will also have good interpersonal skills and an ability to develop positive relationships between the project and the community.
