We’re looking for an outstanding manager to lead our ground breaking housing project, Move On Up.
- Location: Bethnal Green, London
- Responsible to: QSA director
- Salary: £19,904 (this is the pro rata salary of the full time level of £34,121)
- Hours: 21 hours per week, ideally worked over 3 days

Quaker Social Action (QSA) is a charity, founded in 1867, which addresses poverty and social exclusion. We are based in Bethnal Green. We support over 3,000 people each year directly, as well as reaching hundreds more professionals each year through our training and campaigning activities.
Move On Up is a supportive housing project which was set up in 2017. It remains the only project of its kind in the UK, growing from previous work delivered by QSA and a strong belief that, at the heart of our communities, we need decent, stable and affordable housing. In London, this is a challenging aspiration to bring to reality and the private rented sector poses many barriers and challenges even to the affluent.
As the Move On Up manager, your role will be to oversee this ground breaking project, and offer clear support and direction to the Move On Up development worker, who you will have a hand in appointing. You will need to build up a strong relationship of trust from the outset with the tenants and continuing the ethos of the project which is about setting sufficient boundaries and protocols to maintain a good housing management relationship while never losing sight of the fact that the most important aspect of this work is to support the tenants to flourish and thrive during their time with us.
It will require the ability to work under your own steam and to manage multiple priorities, engaging with a wide range of stakeholders, who are our partners in the project and whom we want to influence, as we share the learning arising from this work.
