The council has an excellent track record in delivering new affordable homes and has ambitions to deliver a pipeline of more than 600 homes as part of our Affordable Housing Programme.

We are looking for an experienced housing development manager, who is passionate about delivering social housing, to join our committed and innovative team.

This is an exciting time for the council. In addition to our own direct delivery, we have also created a Local Housing Company to deliver new housing products as part of our wider programme.

If you have detailed knowledge and experience of the development process, excellent project management, communication and negotiating skills and would like to work in a busy and varied team environment, we would like to hear from you.

Educated to degree level or with equivalent experience you will have ‘up to date’ knowledge of the development process and current housing issues and good practice.

Managing a number of varied projects, you can demonstrate a successful record of delivery, detailed understanding of the complexities of housing delivery and experience of working successfully with internal colleagues and external partners.

The ability to converse at ease with members of the public and provide advice in accurate spoken English is essential in this post.

Closing Date: 22 September 2019
