Newcastle is a city fast gaining a reputation for its innovation and progress. The heartbeat of the nation’s green revolution and the subject of growing international investment. Newcastle is amid a social housing revolution with the city council set to take back control of its housing stock for the first time in two decades.

This is a city of ideas, innovation and progress where every single person who lives, works and visits can help contribute to their success. It is an exciting time for the Newcastle city region and now two career-defining strategic roles have emerged for those who want to be part of it.

Are you ready to be a part of it?

A new housing and communities directorate will lead on the city’s social housing and housing strategy. Bringing social housing back into the council gives us an opportunity to integrate housing into our ambitions and our priorities and ensure our residents are at the heart of everything we do.

A career defining role in a fast-changing city, we’re looking for an experienced leader to develop and showcase the very best housing services for our residents and communities while driving our ambition to be a fair and inclusive city.

You will be passionate about housing, possess excellent stakeholder management and strategic partnering capabilities, and demonstrate the ability to strengthen relationships internally and across the region.
