Housing Options Manager

Permanent, Full time

We are offering a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic housing manager to work in beautiful Torbay. Torbay is an urban unitary authority in Devon and as such the structure of the department is integrated into wider service delivery across the local authority.

This is an exciting time to join the team as you will be accountable for shaping our service direction, and coordinating the authorities’ positive responses to housing needs and the Homeless Reduction Act, while forging new local solutions to meet a diverse range of housing needs. As a member of the Community Safety management team you will inherit a committed and talented team and partnership who will thrive under your leadership to meet these challenges. The Housing team is co-located with ASB and Vulnerability team including mental health, Housing Standards and Police staff to form a wider partnership providing an holistic response to housing solutions.

You will be someone with a track record in managing change, enthusiastically leading, and supporting teams under pressure, and developing creative and successful partnerships at both local and sub regional level. If you can drive service improvement towards excellent customer focused service delivery, and still keep your balance and sense of humour, we would love to hear from you.
