Do you have proven experience in community engagement and/or development work and excellent communication skills? Then join Shelter as a Senior Development Worker and you could soon be playing a key role within an exciting project that’s funded by The Social Innovation Fund and supported by the European Social Fund (ESF) and Scottish Government.
Housing has become a national emergency that affects us all. At Shelter Scotland, we believe a safe home isn’t just a fundamental need - it should be a right. That’s why, more than ever, this year and beyond we are leading the way to a safe home. We’re going to rally the country to join us on our mission to rise up, speak with a united voice, pick up the pieces and fix the underlying problem. Will you join our Time for Change team and help us?
Time for Change focuses on the identification of local issues facing homeless people and, through involvement and wider consultation, co-produces the design and delivery of a local response to tackle those issues. The project is currently operating in Glasgow and a one-year pilot project was established in Dundee, which ran from October 2017. We have now secured funding to further develop this work in Dundee, as well as introducing this approach to Aberdeen and Edinburgh.
About the role
Based at our Community Hub in Dundee City Centre, your challenge will be to lead the project’s work and take accountability for its success. This will involve engaging with people with experience of homelessness across Dundee, developing opportunities for involvement and facilitating core groups and forums. We’ll also rely on you to build and maintain relationships with a variety of stakeholders and ensure the individuals you engage with are integral to service delivery. Seeing that your team, including paid staff and volunteers, deliver good customer care, person centred support and effective outcomes for clients will be vital too, as will supporting the Hub Manager to ensure contract and organisational targets are met and exceeded.
This is an exciting and diverse role where you’ll be leading on the delivery of this workstream in Dundee, so you’ll definitely need to have developed and run administration systems, assisted with finances, including budgets, ideally in a customer-facing environment. You’ll also need excellent communication skills, not least as the role involves communicating with a variety of audiences. The success of this work is dependent on assertive outreach too, so you’ll need to be a confident and enthusiastic individual who can self-manage and self-motivate. The ability to manage and collate data, carry out analysis and write reports is a key skill. Whilst experience of working with people experiencing multiple and complex needs is desirable, it is not as important as your ability to engage with people, develop relationships and create opportunities for meaningful involvement.
Benefits include 30 days’ annual leave, the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.
Shelter Scotland helps over half a million people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business. Shelter Scotland is committed to protecting the health, wellbeing and human rights of those we support, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect. All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.

At Shelter Scotland, we welcome and encourage applications from everyone regardless of age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion and sexual orientation. We are facing diverse problems, so need diverse people to tackle them.
Shelter does not accept unsolicited CVs from external recruitment agencies nor accept the fees associated with them.
