This is an exciting opportunity to work in the Chief of Staff Directorate, which is central to the operation of Homes England and its ability to contribute effectively to the delivery of the Government’s housing agenda. You will be responsible for the delivery of a variety of external and internal facing work to support Homes England in its day-to-day and strategic relationship with central government and parliament, such as political monitoring, policy reviews and the management of MP enquiries and Parliamentary Questions. You will also support the delivery of enhanced governance structures within an expanding organisation that will help provide assurance in our accountability to government, playing a significant role in the delivery of the Homes
England Development Programme. 

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: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/homes-England.
