Loreburn is an innovative housing association with strong values and a commitment to Creating Great Places to Live and home that are affordability in use. New homes will be built to Passiv Haus standards where possible and all new developments will achieve high levels of energy efficiency. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and energised property professional to join a highly successful organisation as we begin to deliver the ambitions set out in our next three-year Asset Management Strategy.  You will have experience of leading a major asset function at a senior level, ideally, in a social housing context. This role will offer you the freedom and autonomy to impact positively on service delivery whilst striving for our corporate ambition of zero-carbon and high energy homes.  This role is central to our success, so we are looking for an ambitious, talented, and inspirational individual.

The post holder will be our Passiv Haus and zero-carbon champion, so we are looking for an individual who has a strong commitment to the level of quality, techniques and skills required to develop these superbly efficient homes for our customers. There is also an expectation that the post holder will begin to shift us from a standard repairs service to a one which delivers zero carbon across our whole estate by 2045. In addition to helping us to make that shift, the post holder will also be responsible for ensuring value for money and efficiency across all property services. As you will see from our ambitions the role requires an inspirational leader who can provide direction to all colleagues within the directorate and line management of the repairs, voids management, planned and cyclical services and our development programme. It is a challenging role but for the right individual will be exciting and rewarding.

Everyone at Loreburn is proud to be part of an innovative organisation embracing a fast pace culture, however, we know we need to be able to juggle priorities and change direction at short notice when required. If you thrive in that environment, you may be the right person to lead our property teams and we would love to hear from you.

If you have the experience, attitude, leadership skills and knowledge we are seeking, and most importantly the enthusiasm and passion for this role, then get in touch to explore this opportunity further. If you are looking for a role that will challenge, stimulate, stretch, and occasionally frustrate you but brings an opportunity to inspire and develop an already enthusiastic team to deliver exceptional outcomes then this role may be for you. If you want to work collaboratively with an ambitious Management Committee and Executive Team as well as customers, colleagues, and contractors to shape a service that Creates Great Places to Live then you may want to read our role profile and persona specification and consider joining us.

Please be aware Loreburn is moving to a permanently home-based agile workforce to both broaden our talent base and ensure a good work-life balance there will however be a requirement for a limited number of face-to-face meetings throughout the year.

You will be asked to complete a personality profile if you are shortlisted.
