WORK WITH US

Being part of the Kairos team is an amazing opportunity to join a small grass-roots team making a real difference in Coventry. We’re dedicated, passionate people who aim to go above and beyond each day for the women that we work with.

A Home of Her Own Coventry

Coventry has seen an extraordinary rise in the number of homeless people and in temporary accommodation in the last few years. The recent report ‘Home of Her Own’ (July 2019) by Women’s Budget Group (produced in collaboration with Coventry Women’s Partnership) identified that ‘for Coventry, as in most of the country, housing benefit is not covering full rents in any of the bedroom entitlements – even for the cheapest rents’. Aside from refuge services for women fleeing domestic violence (which are already oversubscribed), there are currently no women-only accommodation options for females in Coventry.

 

Working in partnership with Coventry Haven Women’s Aid, KairosWWT is leading a project to gain further understanding and evidence of women’s housing across the City. The aim of this new project is:

1) Provide tailored, direct support to groups for women whom housing services are often hard to access, including rough sleepers, women with multiple/complex needs, BME women, those with no recourse to public funds and/or whose economic circumstances disqualify them from housing-related support, as well as women at risk of homelessness or losing tenancies.

2) Reduce number of women rough sleeping or becoming homeless and increase number of women accessing safe, appropriate accommodation & maintaining tenancies

3) Increase level of gender and trauma-informed support in Coventry delivered by women’s organisations.

 

To take this exciting new project forward we are now recruiting to the following posts:

1) Project Lead (part-time, fixed term until March 2021). Job description and person specification is available here. We would welcome applications on a secondment basis. Deadline for returning completed application forms is midday Friday 6th December

2) Housing Practitioner (part-time, fixed term until March 2021). Job description and person specification is available here. We would welcome applications on a secondment basis. Deadline for returning completed application forms is 9am Monday 16th December.

These roles are funded by Homeless Link.
