Scottish Veterans’ Residences – Housing Support Managers


Scottish Veterans’ Residences (SVR),  Scotland’s oldest military charity, has an array of resources at its disposal to support former Armed Forces and Merchant Navy personnel, who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or who otherwise need housing support. We seek to maximise their independence and provide support to move on to appropriate, permanent accommodation wherever possible.

We are seeking two Housing Support Managers to lead two of our three core Residences. These roles are pivotal in delivering our service and as such, represent a fantastic career opportunity for the successful candidates.

You will also have an excellent understanding of the supported housing sector and be able to demonstrate a track record of delivering high quality services. You are reliable, consistent, focused, and flexible in both your outlook and approach.

In return, we offer an excellent remuneration package within the range £38k – £42k per annum dependent on experience, plus additional benefits, and pension, with 35 days annual holiday.
