Lead - Homes First, Property Services

We have an exciting opportunity for a suitably qualified and experienced Property Services Manager to lead a multi-disciplinary team providing a comprehensive range of repairs services covering over 7,000 dwellings, owned and managed by Lewes District Council, Eastbourne Borough Council and associated commercial companies.

Over the last two years we have been putting in place a new joint service providing housing management and repairs for residents of Eastbourne and Lewes, called ‘Homes First’. The Property Services lead is an important member of the senior management team and will be expected to be able to deliver complex performance and compliance information to a range of audiences, including local members, commercial boards and representative tenant bodies.

This will be an opportunity to shape the service for the future to provide our residents with a sustainable service which meets future demand, changes in legislation and is responsive to a broad range of critical stakeholders. You will drive service standards through stakeholder consultation and continuous improvements while ensuring good performance against key indicators. There will also be a strong emphasis on financial control and delivering value for money.

If you are an effective self-motivated manager with excellent communication skills, have a strong track record in problem solving and working collaboratively with colleagues, partners and stakeholders to drive performance improvement, we can offer this challenging and rewarding role.
