As our Strategic Director of Housing, Property & Community Safety, you’ll provide strong leadership for our housing-related services, from Tenancy & Estates and Asset Management to Homelessness and Housing Allocations.
We’re looking for someone who can help transform our social housing services and ensure they provide a much-needed safety net for our communities. There are also other challenges around rent arrears, estates and property repairs, temporary accommodation, and tenant relations – and we need an innovative, collaborative and creative individual who’s ready to lead transformative change in the directorate.

While challenging, this is an incredibly rewarding role that delivers tangible outcomes for the people of Basildon.
