We are a charity that provides tailored support for people, at home, and in the community and are here for people who are living with the effects of homelessness, poverty, addiction, and family breakdowns.

Our vision is for a world where everyone has an equal chance to create a safe and supportive place to call home, and we work towards that by continuing to support and prevent people becoming homeless or separated from the people they love.

We are looking to recruit a newly created and business critical role of Director of Programmes.  Supporting the Chief Executive and Board, our new Director of Programmes will ensure Right There, as an organisation, continues to innovate and improve our programmes by creating, implementing, and delivering the best possible support for people whatever their situation. With experience in leading high performing teams and delivering excellence, you will lead the strategic development and operational delivery of Right There’s programme of front-line services. Embedding best practice, you will ensure our programmes deliver the right support, in the right place, at the right time for people who need us most.

The Director of Programmes will also play a critical role in building both our sustainability and reputation by maintaining, extending and expanding our programmes. Ensuring strong co-production to inform all programme design and development activities, you will play a direct role in ensuring everyone we work with has the opportunity to realise their potential.

Working with people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness and children and families who are going through a difficult time, you will lead our colleagues across all programmes as they deliver our mission.
