CSTM has been helping homeless people since the First World War and is one of London’s largest homelessness charities. We have an annual turnover of £4.9m, a staff team of 75 and around 50 regular volunteers. Alongside our own fundraising and some statutory work, the charity benefits from the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal, run by our partners – the St. Martin’s Charity.

This is an exciting time to join the organisation in this role. We are developing a broad spectrum of social enterprise activity to include food and drink products developed in-house and sold wholesale; growing our gardening project into a fully-fledged gardening maintenance company; running pop-ups and developing a café prototype to be rolled out in the future; and much more.

Particular focus for this role will be on:

  • Working closely with the Enterprise Development lead to build business cases around new enterprise projects
  • Working with the Enterprise and Fundraising teams to develop products for sale online
  • Managing and optimising the online store
  • Working with the Art Group to design and deliver Christmas cards for sale online
  • Developing external distribution channels for enterprise products

This is an ideal role for someone who wants to work in a fast paced, cause-driven environment and get a diverse range of opportunities across social enterprise. You must be dynamic and energetic; combine entrepreneurial initiative with a detailed and strategic mind; have good practical skills and high computer literacy; and have the soft skills to build relationships with both colleagues and potential commercial partners.
