Women’s Pioneer Housing has a rich history of housing women for 100 years. In 2020, the need for safe secure affordable housing for women is as great as ever.  We remain committed to making a positive difference to women’s lives by providing high quality homes and services.

Our vision and values, co-created with our staff and residents, reflect both our history and our future: Positivity, Integrity, One team, Never forgetting the customer, Equality, Empowerment and Responsibility. We are on an exciting journey of continuous improvement, putting residents at the heart of everything we do.  Our Resident Engagement and Scrutiny panel works with us to design services and to consult residents on our plans.

Our current Housing Director is going on maternity leave and we are looking for an interim Director to carry on the excellent work she has begun while she is out of the office. You should have significant housing management experience and an exceptional record of customer service, strong leadership and people management skills, a collaborative approach and a passion for women’s housing issues.

This role requires you to work collaboratively with your colleagues in the Senior Management team and to encourage your team to do the same to provide a seamless service to residents.

You may be an experienced director looking for a new challenge or a middle manager looking to gain your first experience at this level. We are happy to consider candidates on secondment from other HAs.  We will provide a comprehensive induction, coaching and excellent opportunities to learn and develop as a leader.

We have re-evaluated how we work since the global pandemic; working patterns may take a blended approach between working from our head office and our satellite offices but will also be fully enabled working from home.

We also offer a brilliant benefits package:

  • A generous flexi-time policy
