Housing Solutions is an ambitious organisation; working hard to maximise the number of new homes we build, refurbishing our existing estates and striving to innovate in order to achieve happy customers. 

We are firmly on course to meet the challenges of the next 20 years and take advantage of the many opportunities available to us at a time when the housing sector and wider society are set to change beyond recognition.

We are looking to attract a new Director of Housing and Maintenance to join our senior team.  You will be joining an excellent team committed to maximising our impact whilst creating a high performing and business minded culture.  This is a key role so, as well as displaying considerable leadership credentials you will bring substantial property and housing management capability.  You will be responsible for continuing to transform what is a significant part of our business and enable us to create truly customer focused repairs, maintenance and compliance services for our residents through effective contract management of our Direct Labour Organisation and other third-party suppliers.

We want do-ers, proactive responsibility takers who make it easy for others to take action.  We want professional people, people who aspire to be part of a brilliantly run social business who are not afraid to embrace change and innovation and add real value to the corporate vision at Housing Solutions.
