Estuary Housing Association is a successful and growing not-for-profit organisation with a strong regional commitment within Essex and the outer East London Boroughs. We currently own and manage just under 4,400 properties within these areas.
In addition to an HCA/GLA backed programme of new affordable homes we are also working through our subsidiary, Accession Homes, to develop homes for market sale to provide cross-subsidy for our affordable homes.
The Director of Development is the senior development professional in the organisation, reporting directly to the Chief Executive, and is responsible for producing and delivering the development strategy in accordance with the corporate Business Plan. The role is both strategic and operational, working with a small team to acquire new business opportunities and deliver them.
We are seeking an experienced development professional with a proven track record within a Housing Association development environment. You will need to have proven leadership skills and strong programme and contract management skills alongside a thorough understanding of the HCA/GLA funding regime. You will be well networked and connected with a range of private and public sector partners and will demonstrate a drive to succeed.
The post is located in our registered office in Southend which is served by excellent public transport links.
