Our ambition is to develop a range of housing options, including housing with care and support schemes across Leicestershire by 2027.

Your knowledge of social care accommodation, and experience of delivering a wide range of programs, will secure the best outcomes for the council and Leicestershire residents.

The ideal candidate:

  • Proven senior management experience in a social care or property development environment.
  • Demonstrable evidence of developing new commercial initiatives and successfully delivering wide ranging programmes.
  • Previous experience of marketing and business development.
  • Adaptable, with an innovative and positive approach.
  • Effective communication skills including an ability to negotiate, persuade and influence key stakeholders at all levels.
