We’re proud of Lewisham’s diversity and our distinct and dynamic communities. A borough of sanctuary, we have a history of welcoming migrants and refugees, which reflects our values of fairness and equality. The cost-of-living crisis and the impact it is having on our residents has made us determined to ensure that our communities have safe, affordable homes and we are taking positive action towards this.

THE ROLE

This brand-new role has been created to support the people most in need of our help.  As Executive Director, Housing you will finalise the smooth transfer of over 19,000 council tenancies and leases from Lewisham Homes and Brockley PFI into the Council and ensure outstanding management of those homes.  You will also ensure we provide exceptional housing needs services including homelessness, temporary accommodation, and private sector housing.
