Head of Housing and Communities

£75k - £82k

Wychavon and Malvern Hills District Councils have a great deal to offer - from a fantastic environment to live and work in, to empowering and collaborative cultures that support shared ambitions and achievement. Add to this the opportunity to take on a strategic leadership role across two local authorities and you’ll be quick to recognise what makes this such an attractive career move.

This is a new role, created to enhance our strategic capacity and influence on the housing and communities agendas in our districts, working in partnership with housing association partners to deliver the new homes that are integral to the development plan; and shaping the cultural, leisure and community offer that make the two districts destinations of choice. We’re also working to bring about radical changes to the private rented market through the development of new housing companies.

Part of the councils’ joint senior management team, this role offers a chance to be at the centre of a vibrant and flexible organisation, where we work together to make things happen quickly.

You’ll need to offer convincing experience of leading high performance in a relevant professional setting, and the breadth of perspective to engage credibly across this role’s portfolio. Professional expertise should underpin your wider thinking, so that you can ensure the operational detail is right, as well as leading decision-making at a strategic level.

Closing date: 18 June
