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.

The Housing Programmes Officer will support the Housing Programmes Systems team in the development, testing and maintenance of the Homes England  Investment Management System (IMS), including Help to Buy and Compliance Audit.  The team provides end-user support systems, processes and compliance arrangements for housing programmes and management functions.

Key requirements of the role are an enquiring mind, a systematic approach to problem solving, and adaptability to deal with a wide range of information requests from stakeholders.  You will also have relevant experience of Acceptance Test planning and execution.

This is an excellent opportunity to join a busy team with variety of work, ranging from “business as usual” to new development projects.
