Ealing has vibrant town centres, superb parks and open spaces, and diverse and growing communities. However, there’s always room for improvement and we’ve got some exciting opportunities. Our Future Ealing plan has been transforming the way that the council delivers local services to ensure their sustainability and to focus our efforts and resources where they can have the most positive impact. At its heart, Future Ealing has three priorities: Good, genuinely affordable homes; opportunities and living incomes; Ealing is a great place – and you’ll make it even better. We want Ealing to be a place where people live fulfilling lives. A place where services and surroundings enhance every resident’s world. For that, we want leaders with the skill, drive and inspiration to bring improvement through innovation.

As Assistant Director for Housing, Property & Service Delivery, your work will be critical to our residents. You’ll be in charge of the Housing Assets Management and Capital programme; Housing Repairs & Maintenance; Financial Management & Business Service Improvement; Homeownership & Tenancy services; and Commercial Development. Crucially, your service will be responsible for making sure that some 11,000  16000 council homes are safe, high quality and compliant with regulations. When the new Building Safety bill comes into force, you’ll see that we’re ready.

By providing excellent outcomes across a diverse range of services, the role will help deliver the Place vision: To foster everyone’s ability to live fulfilling lives in the ways that they choose: through the long-term stewardship of the borough’s environment & economy and by connecting people to the strengths in our communities and to each other.

This role is all about being able to strategically manage a wide range of services, to ensure the best and safest possible outcomes are being delivered. This will mean driving improvement and boosting performance as a trusted, collaborative leader. You’ll ensure robust financial management, give high-level advice, develop policies and work closely with residents. You’ll also champion our ‘One Council’ approach, with seamless co-operation and equality. We’re also looking for someone who will be encouraging diverse talent, you’ll support and inspire your team to give their all.

To win the confidence of colleagues and partners, you’ll need experience in housing services delivery. Knowledge of social housing, asset management, repairs and maintenance, service improvements and commercial development will be particularly helpful. But what really matters is the ability to work closely with partners and foster an open, inclusive environment.

If you’ve got the energy and expertise that this role demands, with a track record of delivery, we can offer you the chance to make your mark in an ambitious and diverse borough such as ours.
