Welcome

Hi,

Thanks so much for considering a career with One CIC!

One CIC is a brand new not-for-profit Community Interest Company working in partnership with homeless people to provide high-quality accommodation and the support they need across West Yorkshire and beyond.

Our small, friendly, innovative team has extensive experience in the housing, care and support sector. We have big ambitions to transform and deliver better housing and support for homeless people – to fundamentally develop new ways of implementing and achieving better results that builds community resilience and creates opportunities for people to thrive.

With an estimated 320,000 homeless people in the UK, the government have put an emphasis on eradication homelessness and is a key agenda. Statistics have identified that homeless hostels success rates are low as the majority of people moving on from this type of accommodation are moving into substandard homes, and tenancies are failing, increasing attendances to local councils for homelessness assessment and housing.

One CIC's Mission is to:

  • Provide affordable, high-quality accommodation to homeless people, in partnership with local councils, housing associations and investors
  • Re-invest all profit back into training, support and development and enable people to lead fulfilling lives
  • Create One CIC Community Hubs in local areas, which will offer homeless people advice, training, employment opportunities and a friendly environment
  • Generate 100's of new jobs and opportunities to get people back on their feet with a long-term goal of having each franchise run entirely by the people it once supported

At our core, we remain a values-based organisation that is passionate about providing high-quality, supported housing, support and added value services to some of the most vulnerable people in society.  

We have a vision and a plan for our services, and we are looking for a high performing, ambitious person who shares our values to join our team to help deliver it.

In a fast-changing internal and external environment, we need a Head of Service that enables strategic delivery and spearheads the development of One CICs pathway provision throughout West Yorkshire. You will be adaptable to change and enjoy helping steer the organisation as a member of the Senior Management Team.

If you like the sound of our ambitious plans and share our desire to want to make a positive difference to people’s lives, then please apply.

All the best,

Stephen Kane

Our Goals

  • To reduce the number of vulnerable adults who are housed in temporary or unsuitable accommodation
  • To promote the human rights, independence and social responsibility of each individual
  • To significantly contribute to improving the quality of life for already disadvantaged and vulnerable people by responsibly housing and supporting each individual
  • Provide housing when there are no other forms of accommodation available or when all other options have been exhausted
  • Work with partners and investors to secure appropriate properties
  • Source developments, whilst considering the needs of local commissioning teams
  • Provide intensive housing support to every tenant to enable them to maintain a successful tenancy
  • Treat all people human to human without a corporate face

As a specialist provider of intensive housing management to vulnerable groups of people we work with a variety of people who need help to overcome barriers in their lives.

We offer the support they need to maintain their tenancy and learn the key skills needed to live independently and play an active role in their community.

We support our tenants to stay in their tenancy, manage benefits and debt and develop daily living skills.

We also help signpost to education, training and employment opportunities and empower our tenants to make positive decisions and choices, whilst playing an active role in their local One CIC community.

One CIC provides homeless people with supported housing, bringing a comfortable and safe home together with the assistance and care services that are needed.

Our housing schemes are designed to help people develop the emotional and practical skills needed to eventually move in to and maintain their own home.
