Join the PSU and make a positive impact on vulnerable people going to court. The PSU can offer you a supportive and professional working environment with a commitment to developing your skills.
Are you dynamic and resourceful, and motivated by helping others to help themselves?
The Personal Support Unit (PSU) is an independent charity providing practical and emotional support to people facing the court process without lawyers. Most people are unfamiliar with - and may be frightened of - the courts, and many are in danger of losing their homes, children or livelihoods.
This highly regarded, energetic and friendly charity, is seeking an Interim Regional Manager (maternity cover - initial 10-month contract) to further develop and maintain its services in the Civil courts across London and courts in the South East.
Reporting to the Head of Service, you will be responsible for recruiting, training and supporting a team of staff and volunteers, facilitating day-to-day operations, building and sustaining relationships with key contacts, and working with colleagues to meet an ambitious fundraising target.
You will be an excellent communicator, as well as a practical, well-organised and hardworking individual, preferably with experience in the voluntary sector or equivalent transferable experience.
Applicants should apply with a CV and a covering letter explaining persuasively why we should offer you the post. It is important that your letter should provide evidence of the criteria detailed in the person specification.
Closing date: Thursday 16th August 2018
Start date: early October 2018

The Personal Support Unit (PSU) is a highly respected, friendly and energetic charity providing practical and emotional support to people facing court hearings without lawyers. Most of those litigants are frightened of, and unfamiliar with, the courts and many are in danger of losing their homes, children or livelihoods. The number of agencies available to support them is shrinking fast and so demand for our services is rising month by month. We are passionate about our vision that no one should face court alone.
