About this opportunity
Two leading and very successful organisations in the homelessness and related sectors, HomeGround and Hanover, have merged to form a new agency, Launch Housing, with an ambitious agenda to achieve our vision of ending homelessness. Launch Housing is a strong, single, focused voice on homelessness driven by the values of Empowerment, Fresh Thinking, Agility, Leadership and Courage.
We are a secular, independent provider of choice for clients and the ‘go to’ organisation on homelessness for government, media, philanthropy, private donors and the community. Clients are at the centre of everything we do and are actively and meaningfully involved in the design, delivery and evaluation of services as well as our policy development, public advocacy and fundraising.
The new agency increases access for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, bringing increased scale to organisational sustainability and sector leadership and advocacy. Through partnerships, research and evidence-based approaches, we will continue the tradition of pioneering new methods and fresh ways to develop sustainable solutions to homelessness.
Launch Housing Southbank site is a 51 bed residential facility for singles and couples from 16-80. Launch Housing provides 4 to 8 weeks housing and support for individuals from diverse backgrounds who are experiencing homelessness. Southbank provides housing support and access to programs based on identified needs of the client group.
We are seeking a dynamic and friendly female to assist our Women's service at the East St Kilda office staff with reception duties, welcoming people to the site and providing administrative support to the team. We are looking for someone that is able to work well with a diverse group of people, and has great communication skills (both written and verbal) and has a can-do attitude. Previous experience in administration and/ or working with a people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds would be an advantage.
Please note Launch Housing is relying on exceptions contained in sections 28, 60 and 88 of the Equal Opportunity Act to employ and accommodate women only at this site.
