Douglas Borough Council is looking for a Director of Housing & Property to lead and build on the already excellent reputation of the Housing & Property Service. In addition this Director will be a member of the Chief Officers’ Management Team and will assist in providing leadership, vision and strategic direction across all Council and Corporate initiatives, projects and services. This is an excellent opportunity to be at the forefront of leading and shaping the Service.

Do you think you can meet the considerable challenge of improving services, meeting growing demand and balancing budgets? Do you have the necessary energy and drive with a proven track record of successful leadership and strategic management within a multi-functional organisation of similar range and complexity? Have you got an advanced understanding of the strategic drivers for the service that will come under the control of this position and are you able to appreciate and understand the strategic high profile issues?

If you are seeking out a new and exciting challenge; if you are of high integrity and conduct, honest and direct, if you know what first class service delivery looks like and can inspire a team, if you are enthused by the prospect of joining the largest authority in the Isle of Man, if you are comfortable with being part of a team that seeks to demonstrate values based and strong leadership, then we look forward to receiving your application.
