Job Details

Rykneld Homes
Director of Property Services
East Midlands
Salary: £93,518

Based in the heart of the East Midlands, Rykneld Homes manages, maintains and delivers improvements to approx. 7,600 properties across the largely rural area of North East Derbyshire, dispersed throughout its small towns – namely Clay Cross, Dronfield, Eckington and Killamarsh and surrounding villages. For the past 11 years Rykneld Homes has been registered with the Regulator of Social Housing and has been successfully developing, acquiring, and building for sale its own housing. It now owns 140 properties (including shared ownership) as a Registered Provider of Social Housing on behalf of North East Derbyshire District Council.

Rykneld Homes is currently undergoing an exciting period of transformation - spearheaded by their Managing Director Lorraine Shaw, the organisation is proactively reviewing its structures and talent pipelines, firmly focussed around their customers voice, long-term sustainability and delivering safe and affordable housing for NEDDC’s residents and communities.

To strengthen the existing Senior Management Team (SMT), we are now seeking a Director of Property Services to support us with our plans. With a wide and varied portfolio across repairs, stock condition, voids, damp and mould, compliance, planned and capital investment, this is a critical role holding a direct and powerful impact upon the safety and wellbeing of our customers and the communities we work in. You will be passionate for working collaboratively with internal and client colleagues, whilst also having a clear understanding of ‘best practice’ in respect of your portfolio; empowering your teams to deliver excellent, customer-centric service first time, every time.

We are therefore seeking serving Directors from comparative organisations, or those looking to take their first step-up into a role at this level. With a specialism in one or more of the service areas contained within the remit of this role, we will be looking to identify credible and collaborative leaders, who can seamlessly transition from the operational to the strategic realm, bringing their workforce with them as the organisation positions itself as a forward-thinking market leader.

Joining at an enviable time of change and evolution, with a colleague team positioned well to welcome and support you once in post, this is an opportunity unlike many others. You will be a key member of the executive team with the opportunity to help shape the medium and long term future of Rykneld Homes.

For further information, visit or speak to our executive search partners GatenbySanderson: Rebecca Hopkin (07827 098173), Ellie Masters-Gregory (07867 455 223) or Cory Wilmott (07425 308 691)

Closing Date: Wednesday 22nd May (9am)
