Part of Lincolnshire, South Kesteven is a very special district. It’s home to stunning countryside, amazing history, a vibrant arts and theatre scene and picturesque market towns. It’s also home to over 140,000 people who trust the Council to do its best for them. As our Director of Housing & Property, you’ll join a team that’s transforming to support an evolving place and community.

We’re keen to approach the complex challenge of Housing in a fresh, commercial way. You’ll lead housing delivery, developing an innovative investment strategy that provides new homes while creating social and financial return. It’s a chance to shape strategic policies, new thinking and improvement across all housing services. You’ll then work with a range of partners to make new ideas and solutions happen.

A member of the Corporate Management team, you’ll support the Chief Executive and help to define plans and priorities. You’ll also lead Assets and Estates; Housing Services; Improvements & Repairs; and Housing Development day-to-day. With an open, consultative leadership style, you’ll direct your team to manage housing stock, assets and our property portfolio. With your vision and support they’ll provide a high-quality service.

Degree-educated (or equivalent), you bring strategic thinking and a track record of success. You’ve managed social housing and assets before in a large, complex organisation. You’ve also brought positive change in delivery and culture. With this background, you’ll be experienced and resilient – and not afraid to challenge traditional thinking. Politically smart with credibility and influence, you’ll be adept at networking, advising and building relationships. 

Our district deserves the best possible team. Be part of it.
