The Marylebone Project is one of the largest women’s hostels in the UK for women affected by homelessness. We provide shelter, education opportunities, spiritual space and events in a welcoming and secure environment.

We are recruiting for a General Manager to join us at this key time of our work. As General Manager you will be the leader of the project and will be responsible for ensuring the smooth running of the project and leading the management so they can deliver their goals. 

You will be someone who is able to work well with a busy workload and manage responsibility positively to bring about change. You will be an excellent manager of people and for this we are looking for someone who can get the best out of people, inspire them and provide appropriate coaching and support for them.
