Head of Estate Management
Head of Estate Management
The land we own to support housing delivery is a diverse mix of surplus public sector, former industrial and commercial land and property which needs active stewardship until bringing forward for housing development. The development estate is large, in excess of 7000 hectares in size with varying degrees of risk and complexity. The portfolio is also growing fast. Homes England is about to embark on a large programme of land transfers from other government departments, and acquisitions of former commercial property, to support the Government’s ambition to build over 300,000 new homes per annum by the mid 2020s. We are therefore looking for a property professional with the pre requisite skills, experience and qualifications, to take on this high profile, challenging role, and lead a dedicated team of estate management professionals across England.
Interviews to be held on 19 July 2018 at either Cambridge or London.
Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.
Homes England brings together land, money, expertise, and planning & compulsory purchase powers, with a clear remit to facilitate delivery of sufficient new homes, where they are most needed, to deliver a sustained improvement in affordability. We work locally in individual communities to help meet local priorities.
We invest mostly in building new homes, but also in creating employment floor space and other community facilities, in cities, towns and villages across the country. The homes we fund include affordable homes for rent and sale, and homes for rent or sale at market prices. Our investment helps build around half of all new homes built in England each year. It also helps increase local growth by creating jobs and supporting businesses.
We own public land, which we sell to house builders and others. This is one of the ways in which we overcome barriers to development and help increase the speed with which house builders can build new homes.
Homes England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.
Homes England was launched by the Secretary of State on 11 January 2018. Homes England is the trading name of Homes and Communities Agency. To find out more about what we do please visit: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/homes-England.
