Head of Housing


At Sevenoaks District Council, we have a strong sense of pride for our District and are ambitious and committed in our delivery of quality services to our communities.

Affordable, suitable and decent housing is one of the top priorities in our Council Plan. As Head of Housing, you will help adapt and transform our housing services, including homelessness prevention, rough sleepers, private sector housing and housing policy and enabling. Working collaboratively with colleagues and partners you will shape and oversee the delivery of our Housing Strategy.

With a proven track record in a housing managerial role with a Local Authority or Housing Association, you’ll bring significant experience of delivering a wide breadth of housing services, alongside collaborative partnership working across the public, private and voluntary sectors. You will need to be politically sensitive and have the credibility and excellent communication skills to unite our dedicated team and partners. 

Join us and you’ll receive a generous rewards package, including flexible working, membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme and a generous annual leave allowance. Sevenoaks is a well-connected district, with excellent motorway links to Surrey, East Sussex and the rest of Kent and under 25 minutes by train from London. 

Our culture places our customers at the heart of what we do. We offer a supportive and flexible work environment, dedicated to developing talent by empowering our staff to keep learning, be innovative, value others, work together and achieve.

If you value these behaviours too and share our energy and passion to make a real difference for our residents, we’d love to hear from you.

Closing Date: 30 November 2020

Interviews will be held on 16 Dec 2020.
