Paradigm Housing Group is one of the South-East’s leading housing providers, managing around 15,000 homes across 33 local authorities. Headquartered near Beaconsfield, we are both a charity and Registered Social Landlord, employing over 450 people. We have a clear and ambitious view of where we are as an organisation and where we need to get to; providing more homes for people who need them.

This is a very exciting time to be joining Paradigm. Our objective is that Paradigm should be an exemplar organisation in our sector, and we have ambitious plans for growth based on establishing a sound commercial and financial footing and driving efficiency and best practice across the business.

We already have a substantial and well-established development and sales programme and an excellent financial and geographic operating environment. We recently reviewed our Development Strategy in concert with our Board; we have ambitious plans for the future involving building over 600 new homes each year, including significant land-led schemes. We are also involved in a major town-centre regeneration project and are looking hard at opportunities to make the best use of our existing landholdings, in partnership with a core local authority. We have also successfully secured a £100m private placement to underwrite our ambitions.

We are now recruiting to the role of Assistant Director of Development Delivery. You will lead on all aspects of development delivery, including the specification requirements for new homes, delivery of land-led, package deal, joint venture or s.106 projects, ensuring standing orders and funding conditions are complied with and that the overall programme is delivered on target and within budget. As Assistant Director, you will establish the Development Delivery team as a modern, forward-looking function based on sound and embedded commercial disciplines and processes which will deliver over 600 homes per annum, ensuring adherence to agreed design and quality standards.

You should be an ambitious, ‘can do’ individual with a strong commercial skill set. You will have had exposure to a wide range of development models including land-led schemes and joint ventures.  You will have worked at a senior level in a substantial organisation and bring a track record of successful delivery in a strongly collaborative environment.

This is a great opportunity to join us at a time when you can have a real and personal impact on determining our future direction. At Paradigm, whilst we work hard, we offer an attractive range of benefits and encourage everyone to grow with us. We welcome applicants from all sections of the communities we work in.
