Dear Candidate

Colne Housing is on a modernisation journey. And you could play a leading role in it.

Our ambitious business strategy Enabling Independent Living aims to ensure Colne uses its strength to grow and provide more affordable homes.

We will enable independent living for people in Essex, Suffolk and beyond. We will ensure we will provide services that meet our customers' needs and empower our communities to thrive.

Our vision is bold. We want to be better.

We operate in a region where there continues to be huge demand for a range of affordable and competitively priced housing.

To meet that demand we need to continue to modernise, be agile and bigger.

So at Colne, the only constant is change.

We partner with other organisations where it adds value.

We have a fantastic Board and are proud of our V1, G1 regulatory status and A credit rating. The challenging strategic environment means we are thinking more creatively about how we build without grant and adapt our services for current and future customers.

Colne plays a critical role in the community and enjoys an excellent reputation amongst our key stakeholders for innovating; Iceni Homes is our unique joint venture which delivers a range of development services. Our ability to lead effectively through change has been recognised with Silver IIP accreditation and you will help us build on this success.

You will be an inspiring leader, able to support a business through change, bringing our teams and customers along with us on our journey. You will be pro-active and positive about seeing our People Strategy delivered effectively to meet the organisation's and our employees' needs.

To help you succeed you will be working with a first-rate team and you will have the opportunity to really make your mark given the wider portfolio of responsibilities of this role. We think this variety and exposure to a growing business means that this could be one of those career defining roles for the right candidate.

You will be a great leader of people, customer-focused, a strategic thinker, an influencer who makes their mark. You are committed to using strong governance, health and safety legislation and risk knowledge to assess opportunities and lead us through sound decision making.

You will bring people with you and you will create an environment of high per formance, passion and fun! If you share our determination and are ready for the challenge, please apply now.
