The Governance and Business Improvement team supports and facilitates the end to end processes and procedures of the Investments directorate. Key activities of our team include supporting system development, analysing business implications of changes to policy, maintaining guidance documents, implementing improvement projects and control activities, and ensuring effective risk management as the first line of defence. 

We have two positions available within the Governance and Compliance sub-team which provide an exciting opportunity for individuals with excellent communication and networking skills to contribute towards enhancing the control environment for the Investments directorate. Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a detailed understanding of investment operations and ideally will bring with them knowledge and experience of effective risk management, governance and compliance activities.

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.
