Homes First is a young organisation providing housing and property services to the residents of Lewes and Eastbourne Councils.
Following the appointment of a new Property Services Lead we are creating our own in-house Asset Investment Team:
Headed by the Asset Investment Manager, the team will be responsible for annual capital budgets of between £8 and £10 million, the asset management database, soon to be populated from a 100% stock condition survey, and the development of the Asset Management Strategy.
Both Councils have declared a Climate Emergency, and the team will receive additional resources to develop and deliver projects to combat climate change and reduce the carbon footprint of the housing stock.
This is a great opportunity to be in at the beginning of a new way of working.
This is a specialist role, involving the modelling of asset data to formulate investment programmes in line with the Business Plans of Lewes and Eastbourne Councils. The post holder will be responsible for optimising the value of assets and considering alternative usage / tenures, acquisitions and disposals and monitoring programme delivery and financial commitments.
If you are suitably experienced with a high level of numeracy skills, sound knowledge of housing finance and a knowledge of options evaluation tools and techniques, we can offer this challenging and rewarding role.
For an informal discussion regarding the role, please contact Simon Watts, Property Services Lead on 07808 263765
Closing date: midnight 16 February 2020.
