This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and energised property professional to join a highly successful organisation as we begin to deliver the ambitions set out in our next three-year Asset Management Strategy. You will have experience of leading a major asset function at a senior level, ideally, in a social housing context. This role will offer you the freedom and autonomy to impact positively on service delivery whilst striving for our corporate ambition of zero-carbon and high energy homes. This role is central to our success, so we are looking for an ambitious, talented, and inspirational individual.

Reporting to the Chief Executive and as a member of the Executive Team, the post holder will lead on our recently approved Asset Management Strategy.

An innovative housing association with strong values, Loreburn commits to Creating Great Places to Live with a strong pledge to affordability in use for our homes. A key element of this role will be to act as our Passiv Haus and zero-carbon champion, with a strong commitment to the level of quality, techniques and skills required to develop these superbly efficient homes for our customers. New homes will be built to Passiv Haus standards where possible and all homes will achieve high levels of energy efficiency.
Another element will be helping us to shift our repairs service from a standard repairs service to one which is cost-effective and able to delivers zero carbon by 2045. A strong commitment to that step change is important.
The final element is the investment in current stock and as an experienced senior leader, operating at a strategic level, the Director of Property and Development will bring passion, commitment, and leadership to help us meet our strategic ambition to make our current homes as attractive as newly developed homes.
As well as bringing new thinking to those three key components, asset management, development and repairs, the Director will bring considerable experience, knowledge, energy, and passion to make a valued contribution to the vision and strategic direction of the Property and Development Directorate helping us to drive our Asset Management Strategy and embed a culture of making the right decisions for our homes.
