Job Description

​We are experiencing and expecting significant growth in population size in Peterborough which has led to the creation of this new Assistant Director of Housing post. You will be the strategic lead for all housing related functions from housing development to housing need and management, leading a small but enthusiastic team. Our Local Plan 2016 – 2036 outlines our plans to deliver 19,440 new homes. We have always excelled at fulfilling our housing development commitments, ranking in the top 10 since 2010 for cities with growth in their housing stock however there is still some way to go.

As our Assistant Director of Housing you will be responsible for leading the development and delivery of our housing strategies, establishing a Housing Revenue Account and assessing our house needs and the supply required to meet this. One of our biggest challenges over the years has been our homeless population and this has been highlighted significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have been quick to respond, however building a sustainable, resilient housing needs solution and homelessness strategy will be one of the key priorities of the new post holder.

We are strongly committed, from Members to front line staff, to delivering housing solutions within Peterborough that benefit our residents and would be expecting the same drive, enthusiasm and dedication from this post holder. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is genuinely looking to create and lead a first-class housing function that covers all of the council’s housing remit and is responsive to our populations’ needs through innovative, cutting-edge solutions.
