Vacancy Description

We are the Government’s housing accelerator with a mandate to use our land, money, powers and influence to increase the pace, scale and quality of new homes being built in areas of the greatest demand, creating great places to live across the country. We have an ambitious growth programme in place.

Over the next few years, we will invest more than £27bn to help meet the Government’s ambition to deliver 300,000 homes a year by the mid-2020s. We also operate as a mortgage lender through the delivery of our Help to Buy product. We are working to build a different kind of public service. We must be bold, creative and ‘think big’ to make a true difference to one of the most defining issues of our time.

We now seek to appoint four commercial leaders to join our dynamic and ambitious Board at a critical time of our evolution. We are keen to receive applications across the following disciplines:

  • Retail finance – senior professionals with a sharp understanding of products and services to the end use
  • Financial leadership – ideally within a property or wider asset-led organisation, where treasury has been a feature; audit and assurance background is essential
  • Organisational transformation – where candidates possess experience around organisational design, particularly within growing organisations
  • Placemaking– where your commercial credentials have contributed to the improvement of ‘place’

For full details on the positions, please visit www.odgers.com/71419. Please note these are Ministerial appointments. The closing date for applications is midnight on Sunday 24th March.
