Do you want to be part of the leading voice for housing associations? Are you ambitious to work with our members to deliver powerful policy ideas to effect change and help solve the housing crisis? Do you want to be part of a team with real influence?

The National Housing Federation is the trade body for England’s housing associations. We believe that everyone should have the home they need at a price they can afford. Our members provide two and a half million homes for more than five million people. For the first time in a generation the housing crisis has risen to the top of the political and public agenda and we need you to help us harness this opportunity.

Our members are at the heart of everything we do – our success depends on employing people that have the passion and the skills to achieve the best outcomes for them. Our members have a shared ambition to deliver 120,000 homes per year by 2035, and develop an offer for everyone.

You will hold a mixed portfolio of policy areas, and will need to be flexible and adaptable. You might work on any number of briefs including supply, asset management, health, supported housing, homelessness, and more. We are particularly interested in talking to people who have a good working knowledge of inclusive growth drivers, regeneration and planning policy, particularly section 106 delivery and developer contributions.

You will have the credibility to represent the organisation to our members and external stakeholders. You’ll also be capable of prioritising what’s important and balancing longer-term and immediate challenges to good effect. 

This is a great opportunity to join an organisation that is making a real impact and benefit from a friendly and team orientated working environment. If you’d like to have an informal discussion about the role, please call Amy Simmons on 020 7067 1078 or Catherine Ryder on 020 7067 1096

Closing date: Friday 24th November 2017
