Joel Community Services (JCS) is a registered charity providing a 17-bed night shelter at St Peter's Church, Kingston for people experiencing homelessness. Based in the former church hall, the shelter is staffed by volunteers and led by a skilled, employed management team.  We provide comfortable, overnight accommodation with the emphasis on building a loving community as well as offering a range of therapeutic services to help guests get back on their feet. Driven by our Christian faith and through loving care, we strive to meet the spiritual as well as physical needs of our guests, but we do not proselytise. Our aim is to help support vulnerable people back into society and give them a sense of belonging and self-worth.


The jobholder will take over the executive responsibility for JCS from the current Chair who is the founding vicar and has played an executive role during the formation and earliest years of the project.  As well as consolidating and embedding our success to date, the jobholder will prepare us for future challenges and lead the delivery of our strategy.


Application deadline: Thursday 4th July, noon  

Interviews: To be held on 16th & 17th July and will include a tour of the Joel Community Night Shelter
