Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

The Role

As one of a small number of local authorities on the Government’s Early Adopters Programme, we have an exciting opportunity for a Strategic Technical and Compliance Manager in our expanding Housing Strategy and Development team.

Reporting to our Head of Policy, Performance and Compliance Kay Willman, you will play a lead role in ensuring all our residents are safe in their homes.  You will provide assurance both to tenants and leaseholders in our 33,000 homes, whilst also working with our Development team to ensure new homes in our pipeline are also built to the required standards.  The role will include fire safety, energy efficiency and responsibility for asbestos and water quality management.

The opportunity is great for someone keen to broaden their current background in fire safety compliance or asset management and step into the wider building safety field.  Any gaps in your knowledge will soon be bridged as we’ll put in a comprehensive training programme as soon as you start.  You will manage a team of compliance officers and administrative support staff.

You will have a proactive approach and willingness to build effective relationships with residents, other departmental teams and key stakeholders across the organisation. 

You will need to be a good communicator, well organised, have excellent written, numerical and analytical skills and sound IT abilities.

In return, we can offer you working arrangements that will enhance your work-life balance. These include compressed hours, home working (dependent on service need) and annualised hours and a generous holiday allowance of 31 days plus bank holidays.

In addition, we offer a range of staff benefits such as membership of the Local Government contributory pension scheme, childcare vouchers, new technology scheme, interest-free loans on annual travel cards, discounts at many leisure activities, restaurants, shops and other establishments.
