Local Space is a dynamic and growing organisation that combines financial strength and partnership working to provide homes for those in greatest need. We own 2,400 homes, mainly in the east end of London, the majority of which give homeless people a place to live; the remainder meet housing need for keyworkers, most of whom work in the public sector.

As a leading developing housing association, we have both an innovative business model and ambitious growth aspirations; all underpinned by our AA- credit rating from S&P Global Ratings and G1 V1 ratings from the Regulator of Social Housing.

We’re on the next stage of our exciting journey where the focus will be on improving our customers’ experience and ensuring that digitalisation of our infrastructure brings enhanced outcomes in service delivery and efficiency.

Our new Chief Executive will take us forward from a position of strength and will be passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives and communities. We are looking for an outstanding leader who not only thinks creatively but who can challenge the status quo and bring strong commercial and customer focus to our business.

You will be joining a fast-paced environment with an experienced team so agility, determination, and resilience are essential. Possessing inspirational leadership, strong strategic skills, a proven ability to influence and build effective relationships with all our stakeholders, you will enhance our profile and be comfortable operating in a highly visible role.
