  • Multiple Locations
  • Full Time
  • £37,568 - £41,591

South Hams & West Devon are grappling with a Housing Crisis that they are determined to do all they can to tackle. To accelerate the delivery of affordable housing, whilst making the best use of stock, we are looking to recruit a Principal Housing Development Officer. This brand-new role will be instrumental in delivering new homes on council owned land, working with RP partners on joint ventures and the creation of a strategic investment partnership.

If you have excellent project management skills, a proven track record in housing delivery and a technical background, we want you to help us realise our ambitions.

It will not be easy, and ensuring we deliver tangible outcomes quickly will be the definition of success. It will require innovation, drive and a partnership approach to find and deliver the best outcomes locally and good communication will be key. You will play a leading part in influencing the housing outcomes of people in one of the most unaffordable areas of the Country. If this sounds like a role for you, we would love to hear from you.

We have a unique and forward-thinking business model with a strong flexible working policy, as well as the ability to work in an agile way. Employees can work from home or other venues on a regular basis. If you think you have the right skills, capability and attitude to help us on this journey, we want to hear from you.
