Chesterfield is not your typical market town…
We are hoping there is something truly special about you too.
Chesterfield is a council that prides itself on ‘putting its communities first’, delivering inclusive growth and great facilities and services. We are the gateway town to the Peak District National Park and centrally located with excellent transport connectivity.
The Service Director – Housing will provide strategic leadership and management to the housing service at a time when the council is building new homes and improving the quality of CBC homes while continuing to deliver quality landlord services to its 9,000 plus tenants. You will have strategic oversight and responsibility for a range of council housing services including repairs and maintenance and capital works programmes; HRA business planning; delivery of tenant and neighbourhood services and housing allocations. You will also be responsible for a range of statutory housing responsibilities including homelessness services and private sector housing responsibilities, Careline services and providing stores and fleet management services.
We’ll expect you to be passionate in your engagement with staff and tenants, creative and innovative in your thinking and actions and focussed on continuous improvement.
As a member of our corporate leadership team, you’ll also have the chance to develop your knowledge and experience through your full involvement in other corporate projects and programmes. You will help shape the Council’s future and make your own.
To thrive in this role, you will have worked in a senior management role within the housing sector. You will have a strong strategic grasp and be able to operate effectively within a supportive political environment. You will also need to demonstrate a solid track record of driving quality service improvements and building productive partnerships. Your leadership will be pivotal in helping us deliver a first-class housing service to our tenants.
