If you have a flair for delivering improvement in a housing setting, you will want to pay close attention to this opportunity. We are looking for a highly capable and professionally
qualified housing expert to lead on our Housing Strategy and the management of our housing stock of circa 2,800 homes. It's a time of change in the service, so as well as your comprehensive understanding of the current and emerging legal and regulatory framework for housing, you should also be able to demonstrate how you have led cultural change to place customers firmly at the heart of the service.
