With thousands of people relying on us for decent, affordable housing, it’s vital that we can provide an efficient, high quality service. This will be your challenge as our Head of Housing Maintenance & Assets, a role where you’ll be part of a hard-working team, based in a beautiful city.

Your main task is to oversee our housing assets, ensuring effective long-term asset management. To succeed, you’ll need to develop smart, innovative strategies that extend to repairs service delivery. We need to make sure tenants’ needs are met through planned maintenance and prompt responsive repairs, so you’ll work to transform the service so it’s high performing and always customer focused.

The key is to develop and deliver clear business plans for every part of your area – plans that respond to market conditions and offer value for money. You’ll expertly manage costs as well as the supply chain, but to achieve success and improvement, you’ll need to inspire your team. By making sure that staff are engaged, trained and supported, you’ll ensure that we provide communities with brilliant Housing services.

You’ve worked with housing stock before. So you’ll bring valuable experience and plenty of subject knowledge. What’s more, you’ve led and transformed front-line services, so you’ll also have a track record of improving service delivery and customer satisfaction. With a background such as this (ideally in a Construction-related area), you’ve become adept at managing multiple stakeholders too.

Now you’re ready to lead an outstanding service and deliver complex programmes as part of a forward-thinking authority. In return, we offer a range of rewards and benefits including generous annual leave, pension, discounts on public transport and opportunities for flexible working.
