Project Coordinator

Location: South Wales (Swansea)

Salary: £19,200 per annum (£28,000 FTE)

Employment type: Fixed Term

Hours per week: 24 hours per week

As we approach the first-year anniversary of the Senedd elections with political parties agreeing deals and a Welsh Government ending homelessness plan in place, this is an exciting time to join the Policy and Campaigns team at Crisis.

The team works across GB and in each of the three nations to ensure individual policy solutions and plans to end homelessness are adopted and delivered by governments and public services.

As a Project Coordinator (known internally as External Affairs Coordinator) you will help coordinate the Expert Review Panel, convened by Crisis for the Welsh Government. The panel will identify what changes are needed to the law in Wales to prevent homelessness more effectively across public services and make sure people who are homeless can be rapidly rehoused. In this role you’ll play a key role supporting the panel’s work, including administering its work, managing stakeholders, and arranging meetings and consultation events. You’ll work closely with the Senior Policy & Public Affairs Officer (Wales Legal Review) who manages this post.

You’ll work closely with a range of different people, including policymakers and politicians, client services staff and service users, organisations interested in housing and ending homelessness, and people with expertise in what works to end homelessness.

The role is part-time and fixed term, and is funded by a Welsh Government grant. The successful applicant will be able to agree working hours in line with Crisis’ hybrid working approaches, home-working policy, and the needs of the Expert Review Panel’s workplan. At present our external affairs team in south Wales spends approximately one day per week together at our South Wales Skylight (located in Swansea) and our external affairs office (in Cardiff Bay). It is anticipated that a large amount of the panel’s work will take place online due to panel members being based in different geographic areas.
