Job title: Director of Business and Development
Job ref: TGHC388
Salary: £75,000 - £85,000
Applicable to: External vacancy
Closing date: Midday on Wednesday, 22nd March 2017
The Gateshead Housing Company is a non-profit organisation responsible for the day-to-day management of nearly 20,000 homes.
We aim to provide excellent and efficient services to create homes and neighbourhoods that meet the aspirations of the people of Gateshead.
We employ over 400 people and involve our customers in making our services better.
Recently the Council’s Cabinet decided to transfer responsibility for delivering repairs and maintenance and capital investment to the housing company. Given this backdrop, we are keen to ensure our organisation remains fit for purpose. Having recently refreshed our future ambitions, we have created this new post which we see as very much playing a key role in shaping our future – taking a lead as we seek to generate new income streams and deliver efficiencies to secure our long-term sustainability.
Our strong track record of achievement in Housing Services provides a sound platform for the future development of services and we have already made a start in delivering services to other registered providers and building new homes through our subsidiary Keelman Homes.
To fill this role, we need someone with a track record in working at a senior level who is creative but also has commercial acumen. We want somebody who can spot a genuine opportunity and turn ideas into reality. You will be highly proactive with excellent interpersonal and leadership skills.
You will lead a broad based team delivering a range of corporate services and be responsible for our subsidiary Keelman Homes. In return we offer you an opportunity to work for a supportive employer.
If this sounds like the opportunity that you have been looking for, you have the skills and drive to deliver change and you are attracted by our proposition, I would urge you to have an informal conversation with our Managing Director Jon Mallen-Beadle on 0191 433 5306. I look forward to reviewing your application.
