About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.

We’re looking for a skilled and enthusiastic Risk and Compliance Manager, to bring expertise and capacity to our new Corporate Planning, Governance and Assurance team. We’ve recently been reviewing our risk management, assurance and compliance arrangements, and have established this new role to take forward our work in these areas, and to strengthen and embed our policies, processes and practices.

About the role

As our Risk and Compliance Manager, you will co-ordinate, guide, challenge and support our leaders and teams to ensure that we’re effectively managing our risks, and that we’re compliant with relevant legislation, regulation, and best practice. Through your work, you will develop and refine the policies and processes that we have in place to manage risk and compliance. The work that you do will provide the senior management team and our trustees with assurance that these arrangements are appropriate and robust.

About you

To be successful in this role you will bring experience of successfully supporting the development and implementation of organisational-wide risk management frameworks, tools and controls. You’ll have a strong ability to articulate, assess and interpret risk, and to support others to do this too. You’ll have an understanding of the charity sector and the regulations within which we operate. And you will be a great communicator, confident to engage and collaborate with people in all roles and functions.  

We want Crisis to be an inclusive employer which then reflects our members and the communities we work in. We want to offer opportunities to everyone regardless of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion, sexual orientation, class or age. We particularly welcome applications from people with lived experience of homelessness.

Working at Crisis

As a member of the team, you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

  • Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
  • Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.

When you join us, you will have the opportunity to join our staff diversity networks, which aim to champion issues across the organisation, enable staff to be their authentic and best selves and contribute to making Crisis a truly diverse organisation.

We have 5 staff diversity networks which include Black, Asian and Ethnic people, LGBTQ+ people, those with Lived Experience of Homelessness, Women at Crisis and Disability Awareness.
