About us 

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it. 

The Venture Studio supports, builds and invests in start-ups. We’re in fact a start-up within Crisis itself. We’re in full growth mode, building the future for social change within the charity sector. 

About the role 

As Venture Investment & Impact Analyst in the Venture Studio, you will be responsible for assessing early-stage ventures and assess how each company ends homelessness and fits our investment thesis.
