The Role

Lewisham Homes is an ambitious and growing organisation managing 19,000 homes. We are a not-for-profit organisation leading the borough’s first council housing development in 30 years. We have an ambitious target to achieve in meeting the Lewisham Mayor’s target of building 1,000 new homes in the borough by 2022. This is a big role to design and deliver our new build and regeneration programme through sound investment decisions, and strong programme delivery, all of which maximise the estate value to support future funding.

We are looking for a leader to join the Executive Leadership Team, reporting to the Chief Executive, and driving the business forward through our people. You will need a background that includes development of new homes, and a strong track record in planning, delivery and contract management. You will need drive and the ability to role model our values and establish trust with our staff, customers and stakeholders.

As a major local employer with over 500 staff we are proud to be awarded the Investors in People Gold Standard demonstrating the high standard we set ourselves in leading, managing and developing staff. We’re passionate and proud of delivering great customer service and growing our business to shape a bright future.
