Independent Chair – Multi Agency Housing Panel

Warrington is seeking to appoint an independent chair for its Multi-Agency Housing Panel. This Panel will form part of the Council’s Housing Allocations Policy and will aim to resolve housing problems for those applicants who are homeless or threatened with homelessness, who present with a variety of issues including complex needs, where current routes into housing are not working and are considered ‘hard to house’.

This critical role requires independence, effective leadership, the ability to critically challenge and oversee the continuation and development of housing policy and practice. The successful candidate will be able to evidence effective vision and leadership at a strategic level and demonstrate high level communication and negotiation skills both with professionals and will be expected to report to the Warrington Homelessness & Housing Strategic Partnership.

You will need to have extensive experience in chairing strategic partnerships, a working knowledge of housing policy and homelessness legislation, to demonstrate an understanding of the needs of people with complex needs and the required passion and knowledge which this important role requires.

The appointment will be on a consultancy/self-employed basis for a minimum of 24 days per year: April 2018 to March 2020.

Remuneration is £567 per day for Year 1 (June 2015 to March 2016).
