Service Leader – Edinburgh Street Team

Salary: £30,000 – £35,000 per annum

Based: 22 Holyrood Road, Edinburgh

Hours: 37.5

Are you looking for a role where you can lead and develop a diverse team working on the streets of Edinburgh to deliver life changing quality services?

Can you create a culture which empowers your team and encourages their roles as leaders in every interaction and to take risk informed decision making at the front line?

If so, we have the position for you!

The rare opportunity to lead our Street Team has come up and we are looking for someone to join us who is passionate about making a difference for people facing homelessness on the streets. The Street Team’s work sits at the core of our model, taking our services out to reach people on the streets every day and night, and responding to people as individuals to help them find solutions which includes linking them in with other services, provided by us and others. We are constantly striving to improve and we are looking for a motivated, creative person to work with us as we keep on developing our work on the streets.

The successful candidate will need to believe in our frontline staff and the passion and commitment they bring to Streetwork at Simon Community Scotland, and find creative and innovative ways to empower them. The values of our organisation are not rhetoric, they are alive and kicking in all aspects of our work. We don’t always get it right but we try and try again so bringing those values to life in everything we do is important to us.

We’re looking for someone who is comfortable with detail, delegating appropriately to their team, and enabling leadership to flourish at all levels. We want to promote a culture of genuine participation which places the people who use our services at the heart of what we do and how we do it. You need to be confident in making decisions and in managing complex resources. You should have enough experience to bring technical knowledge of compliance and regulation, service planning and finance as well as strategic workforce planning. You need to always have service users in mind and focus on bringing value to them through smart, efficient, creative, reliable, consistent and effective services.
