Are you adept at managing change, bringing people with you and working with numerous partners? Up for the challenge – then GAEH want to hear from you!
This senior operations role will see the successful applicant lead on the implementation and achievement of the overall delivery plan that the Alliance partners are working to create. This is a visible role which will see you influence local, national and international homelessness strategies which reflect the ambitious goals of the Alliance.
