Director of Operations

Cobalt Housing serves the heart of North Liverpool. Formed as a stock-transfer association in 2003, we manage and maintain 6,000 affordable homes in Fazakerley, Croxteth and Norris Green. Our relentless focus is on building thriving communities where people are proud to live and can be their best; and by providing quality places to live, and tailored support to those who need it, we play a vital role in achieving that. Moreover, we’re acknowledged as local leaders in partnerships which deliver a wide range of economic, neighbourhood and community regeneration activities in our area.

This role will see you join an energetic and ambitious leadership team, with a well-defined brief of continuous improvement to already high-performing customer and landlord services. The remit is a broad one: in addition to housing management, neighbourhood services and overseeing our asset programme (including all aspects of compliance), you’ll also be accountable for delivering our commitment to develop 500 new homes. This is a major plank of our forward strategy, and we want you to bring your experience to shaping and delivering it.

We’re looking for an unusually capable and strategic senior housing and/or assets professional, with the practical experience and sector knowledge to make an instant impact in the role. Able to lead and manage a strong multi-disciplinary team with energy and momentum, you’ll bring a dynamic and customer-first perspective which will enable us to build resilience, capacity and customer satisfaction. Finally, you’ll contribute to the overall leadership of the business, as we address the complex medium-term challenges facing the affordable housing sector.
