Vacancy Description

The Department for Communities and Local Government is seeking to appoint 2 new members to the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) Regulation Committee. The Department recently announced that we will be taking legislative steps to separate social housing regulation from the HCA. The current HCA Regulation Committee has statutory responsibility for the regulation of social housing in England and expects to transition to the board of the independent English Social Housing Regulator in 2018. The statutory objectives and powers of the regulator will remain the same but it will be a standalone organisation.

An ability to operate strategically at a national level within a complex environment;
A proven ability to identify and tackle financial and other risks, acting independently as appropriate;
