Director of Services

King's Arms Project

King’s Arms Project (KAP) is seeking to appoint a Director of Services to help set the direction for KAP’s future development, creating culture, services and structures which give people the tools, paths and opportunity to move sustainably out of poverty.

At KAP, we believe that there is no such thing as a hopeless case. We refuse to give up on anybody and believe that every homeless person can have a bright future.

KAP has been operating in and around Bedford since 1989, supports between 500-700 people every year and is a charitable company with an annual turnover of around £1.4M, employing over 40 staff. KAP is a faith-based organisation and is both an independent charity and a ministry of the King’s Arms Church, Bedford.

The Director of Services role will be responsible for Leadership, management and oversight of ‘Accommodation’, ‘Opportunity’, ‘Outreach’ and Refugee Support, supporting the successful delivery of service objectives. In addition, as Director of Services you will work with the CEO and Trustees, to define and deliver the organisational strategy and promote the vision, ethos, values and mission of KAP.

The successful candidate will possess a combination of skills, experience, drive and personal qualities required to support the CEO in leading KAP. They will have a passion for the vision of KAP, for the character, energy and credibility to make the vision a reality.

As an active Christian, this role offers you the opportunity to integrate and apply your Christian faith to all that we do.

A competitive salary is on offer and this is an exciting opportunity to join a significant organisation working with the homeless in Bedfordshire and beyond and have a significant impact on future growth and development of King’s Arms Project.
