Canopy is a self-help, community-housing organisation based in inner city Leeds. We renovate derelict properties to create decent homes for people who are homeless and work on community projects that improve the look and feel of the areas where we operate.

Person specification

We are looking for candidates who:

  • Work well with others and enjoy a supportive team environment;
  • Take pride in delivering excellent customer services;
  • Are always looking for ways to do their job better; and
  • Can demonstrate a commitment to Harehills and the values of Canopy Housing.

Applicants must have work experience in supervising and/or training vulnerable people and/or those with disabilities, enthusiasm for practical projects and an ability to undertake some physical tasks. You must be comfortable working with computers, as clear record keeping is an important part of the role.

About the role

The job will consist of working alongside unemployed, inactive and/or otherwise disadvantaged people, participating in Canopy activities and supporting people into employment education, job search and/or training.

You will be expected to identify, lead and organise street- and neighbourhood-based projects, find appropriate funding and assist in all aspects of the ESF programme.
