Agile approach to the role and the delivery of the service

For over 40 years Warrington Housing Association has been providing a broad range of affordable homes and services across the Borough.  We are as passionate now as we have ever been about making Warrington a fantastic place to live.

Our work is more than homes, it is about the people, it’s about community, and it’s about taking an asset-based approach to supporting positive and long-lasting change.  

Our colleagues pride themselves on forging strong, productive relationships with our customers, partners and the wider community.

As an expert in development, you will support the Director of Operations to develop and deliver our growth strategy, working closely with SMT colleagues. With responsibility  for leading  an efficient, effective delivery programme to incorporate the provision of new homes and; new business opportunities you will also be working with the Head of Asset on rationalisation, asset options appraisals, disposals and refurbishments and maximising the financial and social return on existing assets.

You will need to demonstrate a strong track record of developing productive relationships with key stakeholders to identify, research, recommend and deliver new growth opportunities, working autonomously day to day to resolve complex problems and make decisions. You will be confident and able to manage a varied workload to achieve challenging performance targets.

The successful candidate will have commercial acumen, be resilient and have the ability to contribute proactively to performance, community outcomes and deal with challenging situations with confidence. 

You must have excellent oral and written communication skills, together with literacy in Microsoft Office.
