Kingdom is committed to contributing towards the eradication of homelessness. As part of that, it particularly welcomes applications from people who are currently registered homeless or have been in the last 12 months. It guarantees shortlisting to any applicant who meets that criterion and the essential criteria for the vacancy. If they offer you the role and you are homeless at that point, they will also offer you a tenancy in one of its properties as part of the Naumann Initiative. If you wish your application to be considered under the scheme, please state this under Supporting information on your application form.
