Worcester is one of the UK’s most attractive places to live, work and visit. A flourishing city, with excellent transport networks, it offers the perfect blend of heritage townscapes and beautiful countryside. Moreover, we’ve a thriving economy, with traditional industries alongside technological innovators and a vibrant University.

Our vision for the city is that it is prosperous, accessible, diverse and inclusive. You’ll be accountable for a range of key issues, including strategic housing, working at county and regional level to plan effective provision of homes and amenities; strengthening productive partnerships (with private sector providers as well as public agencies);  and developing our response to the forthcoming Green Paper on social reform. You’ll have a key contribution to make in addressing some of our most high profile issues, such as preventing homelessness in Worcester; making the city a safe place to live and visit; and supporting communities to lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

You’ll bring a strong track record of productive partnerships across and beyond the housing sector, with a credible and evidence-based proposition that addresses both immediate and structural challenges around homes and communities. While you may have spent some of your career in a charity or larger housing association, we believe that recent senior experience within a local government setting is a definite advantage. You’ll be looking for

a visible, accountable role that will rapidly accelerate your professional development, and offer the tangible personal satisfaction of making a real difference in a very special place.
