Hello. We’re RHP. In a very special opportunity, we’re now looking for an exceptional and inspirational Executive Director Homes to lead RHP’s strategic asset management and development directorates. We want to provide quality homes that are safe, warm, smart and green – places to live that people feel proud of. This means retrofitting our existing housing to meet modern safety and carbon zero standards and building well-designed new homes which enhance the local environment

About us 
Our aim is to provide people with a place they’re proud to call home and services that make lives easier, by being the best customer service provider in the UK and excellent employer. We own and manage around 10,000 homes across London and have plans to build more for social rent, shared ownership and the intermediate market. Our people love working for us and we’ve been recognised as an excellent employer through several prestigious awards, including being awarded Investors in People Platinum status for the second time earlier this year 

About you 
This is a critical role in our organisation. As Executive Director of Homes you will be responsible for ensuring we have a robust strategy for maintaining, repairing and refurbishing over 9,000 properties whilst at the same time leading our ambitious development of 150 new homes per year and leading our complex regeneration programme. We want our developments and regeneration to be truly community and customer focused.

We are seeking someone who has had extensive experience in a similar role delivering a large and complex capital programme with significant procurement and management experience. You will strive to achieve the best for tenants and homeowners and be resilient and agile in leading our complex development programmes. You will have the commercial flair to manage and grow our portfolio of properties and apply an in-depth understanding of building safety and associated legislation, with the aim of providing great places to live. We want an executive who will focus on the future of RHP and all it can achieve.  

You may or may not have prior experience in the social housing sector, but you will be credible with our customers and passionate about delivering our commitments to them. This is a senior leadership position, and you will play a key role in RHP’s modernisation programme ‘Rewire’, transforming our culture to be truly customer centric across all business areas. We are looking for someone who can bring a blend of professional and strategic skills and who has experience of working in a sector where customers matter. You’ll also understand the importance of providing an inspiring place to work and the link between highly engaged employees and customers.

We strive to be a truly inclusive workplace and It’s important to us that you feel valued, appreciated, and free to be who you are, regardless of gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, age, neurodiversity, disability status, citizenship, or any other aspect which makes you who you are.

When it comes to finding talent for RHP we value diversity in all its facets, including gender, disability, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity. We are particularly interested in attracting individuals with diverse backgrounds and experience as well as a passion for working at board level within a sector with a strong purpose. When we’re hiring, we look for people who share our values. We are real, we are easy to do business with and we are purposeful.
