Following a decision to expand and accelerate our Council Housebuilding Programme, we are looking to appoint an experienced Housing Development Officer to assist in the delivery of more than 300 new affordable rented homes over the next few years.

The Council has recently appointed a new Framework of Consultants and Contractors to deliver the programme. Reporting to the Housing Development Manager, you will work alongside members of the Framework to project manage the delivery of individual development sites across the District – assisting with the planning and procurement processes, through to acting as client for the consultants’ supervision of works. You will have an organised and self-motivated approach to your work and have the ability to oversee your contracts with minimum supervision.

Based at our modern Civic Offices in the market town of Epping, at the heart of Epping Forest, the post will initially be for a three-year fixed term contract, with a subsequent review to consider whether it should be made permanent.

This post is ideal for an experienced Housing Development Officer, looking to expand their experience and to further progress their career.

The Council operates a very good Flexi-time Scheme, for the benefit of our staff and the Council.

The Council is committed to working towards equality, safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults and eradicating fraud. It expects our employees to share the same commitment.
