Saffron Housing Trust Limited employs 200 people, operates in four counties within the Eastern Region, manages assets worth £140m and delivers housing services to residents of over 6,000 homes. As a leading developer of new affordable homes in East Anglia we have ambitious plans to increase our housing stock to 6,500 over the next three years.   In recent months Saffron has refreshed its Board and Executive team and is developing new objectives for the next three years to transform the Trust and secure its position as one of East Anglia’s leading providers of housing to those who need it.

Operationally, our priorities are to build on our existing performance in housing and asset management, care and support, customer services and complaints. Our goal is to further transform our services to increase capacity and respond to changing customer demands and demography. Working with our tenants as well as our other stakeholders throughout the region and beyond will also be an important part of the role.

We are at the beginning of our transformation programme and so whether you are already operating at director level or looking to step up, we want to hear from enthusiastic and innovative candidates who have experience of leading large and complex operations teams and delivering a change programme. Strong stakeholder relationship management skills will also be essential.
