Top job! Foyer Project Manager

  • Part time
  • £39,915 pro-rata
  • Isle of Lewis
  • Closing 5th February 2021

Western Isles Foyer is a small, local, independently funded charity established in 2003. We work with young people aged 16 -26 who live in the Western Isles and who are homeless, in housing need, and/or are subject to other significant social disadvantages.

We aim to prevent and alleviate homelessness and social disadvantage via the provision of supported accommodation, a drop-in service facility and a range of support, advice and training. Our services aim to support young people to secure a safe place to live, help them develop the skills they need to successfully live independently, support them to feel more socially included, valued and respected and access opportunities (including education, training and employment) to help them achieve their full potential.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced health and social care practitioner (ideally with prior experience of managing a service for young people). The Project Manager will have experience leading and supervising staff, and the skills to effectively manage a team of staff to deliver effective person-centered support to young people in-line with their individual assessed needs.

The Project manager will be responsible for all aspects of management and leadership within the organisation. In conjunction with the organisation’s Committee this includes responsibility for strategic development, producing and an organisational business plan, and overseeing effective service delivery.
