Corporate Director of Operations - Two Rivers Housing

About the Role:

This is a unique and challenging Director role at an exciting time for Two Rivers Housing.

As Corporate Director of Operations you will work alongside the CEO, Resources Director and a strong senior management team to lead the housing service and a social enterprise facilities management company.

You will develop and deliver sustainable services across both the not-for-profit and profit-for-purpose sectors which means your skills and leadership qualities are as important as your housing or facilities management experience.

We need a creative and dynamic strategic thinker who can challenge conventional models of delivery to help us achieve our aspirations, capitalise on opportunities and lead the development of a successful commercial strategy across the Two Rivers Housing group.

About Two Rivers Housing:

Two Rivers Housing is a well-established charity providing nearly 4,000 affordable homes for rent in the beautiful Forest of Dean and surrounding area.

We are dedicated to ‘creating great homes and supporting communities’ and, like many similar organisations, we are currently developing an ambitious 10-year Corporate Plan, and managing the pressures of Universal Credit on our tenants. We are building hundreds of new homes and regenerating our existing housing stock, whilst offering tenants financial management support and opportunities to learn new skills and socialise in this predominantly rural area.

These are common challenges in the social housing sector – and our constantly improving tenant satisfaction scores suggest we’re managing them well – but this Top 100 organisation stands out from the rest because of its profit-for-purpose activities.

We are growing several ethical commercial business opportunities, generating new income to invest in providing homes and services for Two Rivers Housing. Centigen Facilities Management, TwoCan estate agents and Tandem Living offer great opportunities for generations of our tenants, now and in the future.

Our Offer to You:

This is a superb opportunity for an astute FM or housing professional to join us at a very exciting time of our growth. You will be given the autonomy and freedom to make commercial decisions that will allow you to be able to act quickly, and with the backing of the Two Rivers Housing group.

Salary: Circa £90,000

We are offering a competitive remuneration package, including generous benefits.
