In Homes First we provide a range of Housing Services across two Local Authority areas and on behalf of an Arm’s Length Management Organisation, Eastbourne Homes. Within that the Housing Needs and Standards service are committed to providing a range of customers with focus on  Housing Options, homeless prevention work and raising the standards of accommodation, locally.

Since the introduction of The Homeless Reduction Act in April 2018 the Housing Needs service has expanded to meet huge pressures and demands. As service lead you will ensure the organisations’ obligations around housing needs, housing standards, options and homelessness procedures, statutory and regulatory requirements are fulfilled.

We are looking for a confident and inspiring leader, with extensive housing and management experience, both in the operational management of staff and services and in leading strategic partnership work. Also required are strong all-round communication and interpersonal skills, resilience and calmness under pressure.

We have recently carried out a re-structure of the service,so the successful applicant will be someone who has led effective change management and is driven by outstanding customer care.

The successful candidate may be required to work over our Lewes and Eastbourne Offices but we are an organisation that is accommodating home working.
