Executive Director of Investment and Growth

Silva Homes (currently Bracknell Forest Homes)

Circa £110K plus attractive benefits

Bracknell, Bershire

This is a rare opportunity to be involved at the start of a major transformation programme and help lead the delivery of Silva Homes’ new vision and ambitious growth agenda.

The association was established as Bracknell Forest Homes in 2007 (through stock transfer) and now has 6,200 homes in ownership and a further 1,100 leaseholders/shared owners. We have 210 employees and a turnover of £48m. Since transfer, we have built 414 properties and acquired another 348. Our approved business plan is to build 1,100 homes over the next five years, but our aim is to increase maximise our capacity to develop new homes in the next iteration of our financial plan having firmly grounded the investment needs of our existing assets.

Although Silva Homes has significant financial capacity as well as high-quality services, our new operating model and strategy has been designed to create a more agile organisation, generate efficiencies for investing in new homes and further increase our customer focus with a significant emphasis on enhanced digital transactions. To facilitate this shift, a new organisational structure was agreed by the board and we have recently recruited a new chief executive and the majority of our executive team.

The Executive Director (Investment & Growth) will lead the Development and Property Investment functions and play a pivotal role in delivering the association’s strategic objectives for existing and new assets. We are looking for an empowering leader with substantial experience of operating at a senior level in a complex asset-based and customer facing organisation. Extensive experience of delivering outstanding results in asset values and growth as well as operational and financial performance will be required. Up-to-date knowledge of legislative frameworks, regulatory requirements and key issues relevant to the post will also be important, as will the ability to work with boards and a wide range of stakeholders.
