Homeownership Manager - Retirement Schemes 

Up to £44,140.88 per annum (subject to annual review in April) 

Midlands / East of England with travel across our geography as required - Hybrid   

Permanent, Full Time   


Are you a Housing professional with a background in home ownership, with a passion for delivering exceptional services to enhance the lives of older people? If so, we have an exciting opportunity for you to become a key player in managing multiple retirement schemes across the Midlands and East of England as our Homeownership Manager. 


We are a leading provider of retirement living, dedicated to creating vibrant communities where residents can enjoy their later years in comfort and security. As our Homeownership Manager, you will play a pivotal role in ensuring the well-being and satisfaction of our valued residents.  


In this role each day will be different, with further responsibilities noted below: 


  • Oversee a team of Scheme Managers, who oversee day-to-day operations of leasehold services in retirement schemes working alongside another Homeownership Manager to manage circa 1600 properties. 

  • Build and maintain positive relationships with residents, promoting a sense of community and belonging. 

  • Ensure appropriate cover and support is provided during the absence of Scheme Manager’s, ensuring effective communication is maintained to residents, the Monitoring Services, and contractors. 

  • Coordinate and manage property maintenance, ensuring high standards of safety, cleanliness, and functionality. 

  • Facilitate effective communication between residents, staff, and external stakeholders. 

  • Collaborate with the Senior Homeownership Manager to implement strategic initiatives and enhance overall resident experience. 


Contracted to 36.25 hours per week, Monday – Friday, our Homeownership Manager role is a hybrid position.

To be successful in our Homeownership Manager role, you will have proven experience in leasehold / home ownership management, preferably within retirement schemes although this is not essential. What’s important is you have a passion for improving the lives of our customers, by managing a high-performing team of Scheme Managers and consistently looking for improvements by collaborating with the Senior Homeownership Manager on policy and performance (including legislation, regulation, and best practice). 


If the above sounds like you and you’re keen to help improve the lives of our customers, please apply now for immediate consideration.
