Grow the Centre’s events programme and share our work with key partner organisations through a varied and inspirational programme of events and marketing.

We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and are committed to celebrating and supporting diversity. We know we will thrive on it for the benefit of our employees, our products and services, and our community.  We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, and particularly welcome applications from people with experiences of homelessness.


We’re looking for a talented, creative and experienced Events and Marketing Lead, to conceive and deliver impactful events and marketing that help us to achieve our mission.


The Centre for Homelessness Impact is the UK’s What Works Centre for Homelessness. We want evidence to become the new normal in the homelessness sector, just as it is in education and public health. After the successful launch of our book, Using Evidence to End Homelessness, we are on the precipice of a new and decisive movement to end homelessness with evidence and need a creative campaigner to support the team to move this work along.  We also have a strong track record delivering quality events, both in person and on-line, including our flagship evident, the Impact Forum, which will be expanded and be held twice a year. As we emerge from the pandemic we are looking for a confident Events and Marketing Lead to continue this work, curating a varied programme for our audiences at a time of continuing uncertainty.


  • Develop our events portfolio in line with our strategy and our mission
  • Support our Implementation team to work with local authorities and non-statutory organisations (e.g. charities) to better use evidence and data in their homelessness work. 
  • Stay organised and keep plans clear, updated and accessible to the team at all times  
  • Keep abreast of all of the Centre’s work and develop creative ideas based on outputs
  • Deliver varied and impactful online, in-person and hybrid events
  • Develop clear success measures for the programme


  • Planning, creating and delivering our 2021/22 events programme
  • Delivering our flagship events series - the Homelessness Impact Forum
  • Developing tailored events for different types of audience
  • Working with our Implementation team to design and deliver events and experiences for our local authority, charitable and other sector audiences.
  • Working collaboratively with Centre associates who support the Centre’s activities.
  • Measuring engagement and defining success measures


  • Have a proven track record of delivering successful events
  • Learn about our varied audience and the differing needs for each
  • Be able to manage competing priorities and thrive in an agile environment
  • Be proficient in coordinating and facilitating online events using Zoom and other platforms
  • Work with the Head of Communications and Public Affairs and Head of Practice and Partnerships and ensure a diverse range of views and experiences are represented in our work.
  • Keep abreast of developments in online and in-person events and regularly report back to the team. 
  • Have experience of reporting progress, success and areas for improvement and be proficient at managing budgets
  • Be committed to the aims of the Centre and understand the importance of an evidence-led culture
  • Be open to critique from other disciplines and curious to learn from a wide spectrum of perspectives

Nice to Have:

  • Experience working in the homelessness sector
  • Relationships with experts we can partner with to support our events programme
