Colne Housing is a vibrant, growing housing association specialising in enabling independent living across the East of England.
As a major builder we provide a range of new homes of all types of tenure to meet the needs of our customers in Essex, Suffolk and beyond.
We design our services in response to our customers’ needs and provide a choice of high-quality solutions that meet these needs and empower our communities to thrive.

We hold the highest possible regulatory ratings for our financial strength and governance and we work with a commercial ethos that allows us to deliver more for less, but which respects and protects our social heart and our values.

Colne faces a significant challenge ahead - to meet the huge continuing demand for a range of affordable and competitively priced housing across the region. So at Colne our vision is bold. We need to continue to modernise, partner with others where it adds value, be agile and use our strength to become bigger and provide more.

At Colne the only constant is change. We recognise that our people are our biggest asset and key to us achieving our vision and we are proud to already hold our Silver IIP accreditation. But we want to be better. This is why we are now seeking an inspiring Head of Human Resources to join us on our journey.

As our new Head of HR, you will play a key role in driving our organisational effectiveness and shaping Colne as an environment of high performance, passion and fun! Reporting directly to the Chief Executive, you’ll have full responsibility for the operational leadership and control of our approach to people and culture.

We are seeking a great leader of people, customer-focused, a strategic thinker and an influencer who can bring people along with them. Someone who is committed to using strong governance, health and safety legislation and risk knowledge to assess opportunities and lead us through sound decision making as we move forward.

At Colne you will be working with a first-rate team and you will have the opportunity to really make your mark with a wide portfolio of responsibilities. We believe the variety of this exciting new role, together with the exposure to a growing business means that this could be one of those career defining roles for the right person.

Do you share our determination? Are you ready for the challenge? Can you help us shape Colne for the future as we deliver our bold vision? If the answer is yes, then please contact our recruitment partners at Morgan Law for further details.
