This is a fantastic opportunity to join an innovative team focused on improving standards in council housing.
The Housing Asset Management Team are responsible for making decisions on the investment and improvements in the city’s council homes - Bristol owns and manages over 27,000 flats and houses in all wards across the city, built in every decade over the previous 100 years.
The investment decisions for our diverse range of homes, within an environment of ever-changing standards, priorities and financial arrangements can be a challenge - the aim is to ensure we invest in the right way at the right time. The focus for the successful applicant will be leading our strategy to improve energy standards in our homes - establishing the course to achieve the challenging targets of net zero carbon and minimum EPC C.
What will I be doing?
You will lead on projects delivering improvements in Asset Management, focusing on investment planning, and achieving carbon neutral in council housing. As part of this responsibility, you will manage project resources, risks, issue plans, and ensure agreed changes are embedded in the business.
Your excellent communications skills will ensure that relevant stakeholders are engaged throughout your projects, seeking and acting on feedback where necessary. You will use these communication skills to deliver effective and informative reports for Elected Members and Management Teams.
What do I need to have?
Most importantly you will have excellent knowledge of current housing policy with a sound understanding of the challenges in long term investment planning in social housing. This housing policy knowledge will be accompanied by a detailed knowledge and understanding of sound project management principles with the ability to take ownership for a project from start to finish.
We’re looking for someone who is both innovative, and analytical with the ability to tackle challenges through creative solutions using a complex dataset. An influential and persuasive communicator, you will be able to manage successful relationships with stakeholders at all levels.
