Gap Supported Housing is a charity based in Hexham. We provide short term supported accommodation for homeless and vulnerable adults, aged 18 and above.
The challenges are many for the people we support, from tackling addiction to learning basic living skills; from finding employment to getting a home of their own. Our aim is to help each person address their individual support needs, begin the process of moving towards employment, a home of their own, successful independent living and participation in their community as fully as they wish and are able.
We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced people and operations manager to assist in the management of our accommodation services in Hexham. We have recently opened a new 13 unit accommodation service and are currently refurbishing our original 7 bed accommodation service with the intention of using this to offer separate homeless accommodation to women.

- You will be energetic and passionate about supporting and empowering homeless and vulnerable people and will ensure that support staff are supported to deliver a high quality person centred support service.
