This is a key role working in Consumer Risk to embed a new approach to risk management in the Help to Buy and Affordable Housing Programmes at Homes England.

The Help to Buy equity loan initiative is one of the government’s top priorities, aiming to encourage home ownership and stimulate new housing supply. Launched in April 2013 with an initial budget of £3.7 billion, the total programme budget is £22bn which aims to fund 360,000 Help to Buy home purchases out to 2021.

The role provides an exciting opportunity to make a difference in an ambitious, new agency. Working in the Risk team as the second line of defence, you will support the on-going development and enhancement of best practice in risk management, and identification of risk mitigation strategies in respect of the Government’s home equity loan business and programmes.

As such the role requires sound awareness of risk policy development and related procedures, development and maintenance of good working relationships at varying levels of the organisation and strong effective communication skills.

About Homes England

Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.

Homes England brings together land, money, expertise, and planning & compulsory purchase powers, with a clear remit to facilitate delivery of sufficient new homes, where they are most needed, to deliver a sustained improvement in affordability. We work locally in individual communities to help meet local priorities.

We invest mostly in building new homes, but also in creating employment floor space and other community facilities, in cities, towns and villages across the country. The homes we fund include affordable homes for rent and sale, and homes for rent or sale at market prices. Our investment helps build around half of all new homes built in England each year. It also helps increase local growth by creating jobs and supporting businesses.

We own public land, which we sell to house builders and others. This is one of the ways in which we overcome barriers to development and help increase the speed with which house builders can build new homes.

Homes England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.

Homes England was launched by the Secretary of State on 11 January 2018. Homes England is the trading name of Homes and Communities Agency. To find out more about what we do please visit:
