'We sort out problems together, for good'
Fixed term contract to 31 January 2023
Last year we helped 20,000 people resolve over 45,000 problems - with your help, we can make an even greater impact in the years ahead. Join us to work alongside our Chief Executive, and help ensure our services are ready to meet the growing needs of our communities.
Citizens Advice Southwark has a track-record of delivering high-quality services from its three main offices in the borough and outreach locations across Southwark and South East London. We sort out problems together, for good, by providing free, independent, confidential and impartial advice across all areas of social welfare law, and through using the experience of our clients to bring about positive change through research and campaigns.
The aim of this exciting new project, in which we are working in partnership with Southwark Law Centre, Acorn, and Southwark Council, is to develop an independent Private Renters’ Support Organisation in Southwark.
The private rented sector has grown significantly in Southwark over the last ten years and now accounts for around one-quarter of all households in the borough. Southwark Council is funding the partnership to develop a dedicated private renters’ support organisation to help support and promote the interests of private renters in the borough.
To deliver the project we are looking for an experienced Project Coordinator to provide overall coordination of the project and to lead on developing a proposal and business case for a permanent independent Renters’ Support Organisation in Southwark.
