    About Homes England:  Homes England is responsible for making sure that people in England have homes that meet their needs. Right now, we do that by funding people who want to build homes, making sure that land is available to build on, and by helping people to buy homes that they can afford. 

    We were established in 2017, and since then we’ve been working towards our mission of becoming the UK government’s housing accelerator. A disruptive organisation in the heart of government that can build the housing market that this country and the people who live here need. 

    The housing market is always changing though, and with it so should we. 

    We’re embarking on ambitious period of transformation, but this isn’t the kind of transformation that’s just about digitising our existing services and making them more efficient.  

    We need to build products and services that will fix the housing market we have today, whilst building an organisation that will be able to respond to the challenges of tomorrow. 

    Enabling good people to have good ideas and get things done is how we’ll get there, and that’s where you come in. 


    What you will get from us: 

  • The chance to work on something that really matters in a place that values your skills and expertise.
  • A supportive and inclusive working environment where the organisation’s leadership puts people first. 
  • A range of training and development opportunities suited to your needs. 
  • A growing Delivery Management community devoted to sharing experiences.
