Business Improvement Programme Manager
As a Business Improvement Programme Manager you will be a key part of our support function, developing and improving our approach, enabling St Mungo's to secure existing and develop new contracted services, which will improve the lives of those suffering or at risk of homelessness.
At St Mungo's our vision is that everyone has a place to call home and can fulfil their hopes and ambitions. As a homelessness charity and housing association our clients are at the heart of what we do. We provide a bed and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to end homelessness and rebuild lives.
Working closely with the Head of Business Development and all relevant stakeholders you will be responsible for the planning, development and implementation of the department's Business Improvement Programme, which covers 3 broad areas:
- Setting up of business processes, systems and associated policies and procedures
- Embedding and further developing them in line with St Mungo's commitment to Business Excellence
- Carrying out hands on support to the delivery of distinct projects related to business development
This is a hands-on management position, where you will be expected to contribute technically to the delivery of identified projects as well as their overall management. Critical projects have already been identified this year around the implementation of services and the processing of contracts. You will be responsible for the direct delivery of elements of each project plan to inform the development of the team's support offer.
As this is a new role and the organisation's approach to project and programme management is currently being defined, your ability to support the organisation's development, work flexibility and adapt to the organisation's evolving needs will be critical.
In return, we offer a range of benefits including a pension scheme, staff discounts scheme and flexible working to help you maintain a healthy work/life balance. We are also committed to providing our staff with a wide range of learning and development opportunities; in support of their personal and professional development
If you believe that you have what we are looking for, and have an interest in working for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of people who are homeless, we would love to hear from you.
