This is a newly created, career-enhancing opportunity with us at Muir. As our new Executive Director – Homes, you will play a key strategic leadership role within our ambitious Group as we continue to make a positive difference to people's lives, ensuring that residents and their communities are at the heart of everything we do.


A social housing provider with over 5,500 homes, we employ over 130 people and are proud to have been awarded the coveted Investors in People Gold accreditation. Predominantly based in the North West, our Chester HQ is supported by offices in Burnley and Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire.


Reporting to our Chief Executive, you will be the strategic lead for the Homes portfolio across the Group, which includes strategic asset management, asset investment, all property services, planned maintenance, our repairs service, compliance, sustainability, as well as our development programme. Key immediate priorities include the transformation of our repairs service, alongside developing our 10-year investment plan which will incorporate the de-carbonisation agenda.


With an appropriate property-related qualification, we are looking for an ambitious aspiring, or established, Executive Director with the skills to connect operational innovation to our strategic priorities, increasing our capacity to deliver outstanding outcomes across the Homes services. Either from the social housing sector, or a closely related one with comparable agendas, we are looking for an inspirational leader who delivers at pace, with an unwavering focus on ensuring positive results in a fast-moving sector.
