We help communities take the lead in building and renovating homes, including affordable housing and cohousing communities. We are one of the leading national organisations for community led housing, working in partnership with the other main national bodies to strengthen the national support infrastructure for the community led housing sector.

We are seeking a Manager for our new National Advice Centre. This is a website providing entry-level information, sector data and technical resources to help community groups, councils, housing associations and others initiate and complete housing projects. The Centre will be the nerve centre of our sector, bringing together previously disparate resources and knowledge to accelerate delivery.

The role will involve liaising with stakeholders across England to coordinate sector knowledge and inform the development of the data and technical resources; and writing or commissioning those resources, with a substantial budget. You will also support and providing direction to an Officer working with you to those ends.

We are looking for a team player who will bring first-rate networking and writing skills to their own role, but also champion continuous learning across the partnership. You should have a good understanding of community led housing, or of housing development more generally. The successful candidate will have good writing and communications skills.

The role is a fixed term post, running until March 2020. While envisaged as a full-time role we will positively consider applications for part-time roles, and may appoint one or more people to undertake the work part-time rather than recruiting a single person full time. 

The working hours are 9-5, Monday to Friday. The location is flexible and home-working will also be considered.
