Who we are

Hello. We’re RHP. If you want to make a difference, we’re the place for you. We provide people with a place they’re proud to call home, along with modern services that make lives easier. We currently own and manage around 10,000 homes across London for social rent and shared ownership and have plans to build many more over the next five years.

Our employees love working for us and we’ve been recognised as an excellent employer through several prestigious awards, ranking in the top ten of the Great Place to Work list twice over the past five years and achieving Investors in People Platinum status for the second time in 2021.

Connecting through difference

We strive to be a truly inclusive workplace and It’s important to us that you feel valued, appreciated, and free to be who you are, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes you who you are.

Who we’re looking for

We’re looking for an experienced leader to guide our development team as we work towards our ambition to grow our business, delivering 1,500 homes over the next ten years.

Using your knowledge, technical expertise and enthusiasm, you’ll inspire and help our people to deliver exceptional performance, building homes that our customers can be proud of.  You’ll oversee a diverse portfolio of high-value projects from concept to completion, meeting the needs of a diverse range of customers using innovative techniques that help us stand out from the crowd.

As an experienced leader of a development team (or function), you’ll have built brilliant relationships with local authorities, developers, contractors and consultants and the ability to engage others across the business. Your commercial acumen and regeneration experience will help us deliver our development strategy, striding forward with our landmark regeneration project in Ham and meeting our ambitions around factory-built homes.

You'll manage in the present, but have a keen eye on the future, leading the way as we design and deliver high quality, energy efficient homes that are fit for the future. As part of the leadership team, you’ll live and breathe our behaviours and values, working collaboratively across the business to drive stellar performance and engagement.

We’re committed to hiring truly inclusive leaders who encourage people to be themselves, embracing difference and celebrating the unique perspective that every individual brings.

When we're hiring, we look for people who share our values:

  • We’re real: embracing difference and encouraging everyone to be their true authentic self. We’re open and honest about what we can and can’t do and show we care. We take our jobs seriously but never ourselves.
  • We’re easy to do business with. That means being clear, knowledgeable and friendly. keeping people updated at every step, as well as making sure our services are inclusive to all.
  • We’re purposeful: we go after what counts and love working together to make great things happen.
