PO12: £64,140 to £

Waltham Forest is a borough of opportunity and ambition. Our aim is to ensure that each and every one of our residents enjoys a high quality life in a great place to live.

Over the past few years, Waltham Forest has changed as a place. Good schools, great parks, excellent culture facilities, major regeneration, and community entrepreneurship are making it a place that people want to call home.

Housing is high on the Council’s agenda and to reflect this, the Housing Service recently joined the Families Directorate to ensure families are supported to be more resilient and services are joined up. The Council sees a strong link between housing, health and social care as well as physical regeneration and is looking for the right people who share this vision.

In the midst of a London-wide housing crisis, Waltham Forest has ambitious plans to build 12,000 new, high-quality homes by 2020. The Council is pushing for the highest design standards and for these homes to be supported by the services and infrastructure that residents need to enjoy a good quality of life.
 

In this role, you will support the work we do to make great services even better. 

You will be highly experienced at dealing with customers and stakeholders.   You will develop a new Housing Strategy for the borough.

You will lead on the strategic development and implementation of the HRA business plan to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the HRA, including developing new business initiatives to meet the housing needs and aspirations of the community.   


You will also contribute to the wider strategic objectives of the Council and lead on Service and Partnership Development.
