Hounslow is one of the most diverse boroughs in the country – home to 288,000 people speaking 188 different languages – and a gateway to London and the world.
As a Council we provide nearly 14,000 homes for rent and 2,500 leasehold flats across the borough. The cost-of-living crisis has seen demand for affordable homes continue to grow and increasing numbers of our residents are at risk of poverty and homelessness.
As well as supporting those in housing need, we determined to ensure that every tenant in Hounslow benefits from a first-class landlord. Our new Director will ensure that our diverse communities can live, work and flourish in their homes whether they rent them from the council, registered providers or a private landlord.
With a keen eye for data and a relentless focus on ensuring our properties are managed to the very highest standard, you will thrive on listening to, and engaging with residents. We are seeking an inclusive leader, with a relentless focus on equality and diversity, to achieve outstanding outcomes for our communities and to inspire a diverse and committed workforce and embody the Hounslow spirit.
