Job Opportunity: Director of Housing Development


Take your career in local government housing to the next level at a local authority that puts residents at the heart of everything that it does.

Ealing is one of the largest and most diverse boroughs in London with more than 340,000 people choosing to call it home. Living in a decent home helps people to thrive and prosper. Which is why the council’s top priority is its ambitious plan to create a further 2,500 genuinely affordable homes in the borough by 2022.

To deliver the capital’s biggest programme needs a highly commercial director of development who can equal our ambition. It’s an incredible opportunity to boost your profile, while changing lives for the better.

This role is about growing our current housing function to match our new objectives. In fact, you’ll rapidly and significantly expand Ealing’s housing supply. It involves developing nine estate regeneration schemes, delivering our housebuilding programme of at least 1,200 homes, and operating our housing company ‘Broadway Living’. You’ll also work in partnership with external housing associations and the private sector.

You will be joining the council during a period of transformation. Our Future Ealing programme is well underway and it aims to improve outcomes for residents while, at the same time, helping the council to meet its ambitious £57million savings target. Our plans are starting to show results and the work of the housing directorate is vital to our programme.
