Every one of us has the potential for a more fulfilling future. For some, that means leaving drugs, homelessness, or crime behind – discovering their self-worth, returning to a life of hope and making a new beginning. For you, it’s a role with huge scope for transforming people’s lives when they need it most.
As Head of Service, you’ll coordinate nine of our services across the country, leading our work on substance use, homelessness, and justice.

It’s an incredible opportunity to take the next step up in your career.
And it could be the first of many. With us, you’ll have ongoing training, support for gaining professional qualifications and, potentially, opportunities for progression. Until then, you’ll find a role that’s rewarding in every sense. As well as a competitive salary, there’s a generous pension, health benefits, paid holiday and a range of leisure discounts.
