Chief Commercial Housing Officer

Circa £100,000

Hft is one of the largest charities in England and Wales supporting people with learning disabilities. We are passionate about what we do and we use our unique understanding of the challenges facing the people we support to speak up with them to bring about positive change. This is a pivotal time for Hft and an exciting time to join us as we build our new team and focus on our future.


Our Chief Commercial Housing Officer is one of six “Chief” roles forming our Executive Team. This is a critical role; we need to continue to build on our work to transform our previous estates function to be a commercially focused, fully compliant and high-quality housing provider.  Of critical importance is the ability to lead the strategic transformation of some of our current sites, working to deliver sustainable, ambitious, innovative and dynamic housing solutions to both people we support and ultimately to other providers.

This is a significant leadership role at the heart of our Executive Team. You will provide strategic direction and commercial leadership across all elements of our housing portfolio. You will be an ambitious, strategic and transformative housing expert with deep knowledge of all relevant legislation and Government policy. Your commercial insight into how we transform our assets to deliver best in class housing and other building-based care services will be invaluable; and you will have an outstanding track record of leading transformation and change within a complex housing portfolio to deliver exceptional standards and excellent services. You will bring the leadership experience to do this alongside the values we cherish and the focus to deliver.

We can offer you a superb opportunity as part of a strong new Executive Team that is committed to achieving the best outcomes for the people we support. If this excites you and you feel you bring the skills and experience we need, we’d love to hear from you.
