Head of Property Care
There couldn’t be a better time to take on this key management role at Community Housing. A new Chief Executive, a new Chair, and a new corporate plan all make this the ideal moment to take stock and refresh how we work, to ensure that we have the right structure, talent and objectives in place to deliver the very best on behalf of our customers. But we aren’t starting from scratch. We have a track record spanning more than 20 years, so we want to harness that knowledge and expertise as we look forward to the next two decades, and beyond.
As Head of Property Care you’ll play a central role in keeping the promises we make to our customers – delivering a highly responsive repairs and maintenance service; building safety services; window manufacturing; and grounds maintenance and cleaning services. You’ll ensure that work undertaken is of the highest quality, is delivered as efficiently as possible, and that diligence and care underpin a safe working environment. You’ll be responsible for developing a Property Care business plan (current turnover circa £15m) as well as the publication of the annual and five-year Property Care Business Plan.
Highly effective people management skills will be crucial – it’s essential that you have proven experience of successfully leading operational, customer-facing services. Your significant experience of managing maintenance services will mean that you have a detailed knowledge of health and safety requirements, as well as the technical know-how to effectively quality assure work undertaken, and associated costs. You’ll ensure that we get the very best from our team, as well as the specialist sub-contractors and suppliers that are an integral part of our work – a thorough knowledge of procurement and implementation of maintenance and building safety services will be a key attribute.
