  • Interim Director of Housing

    South West - Up to £500 per day

    Contract Type: Temporary

    SHARE THIS JOB

    Are you a housing professional with a strong vision and an eye for detail?

    We want Dorset to be a great place to live, work and visit. Our ambition is to put Dorset Council at the heart of our communities and a council that is truly customer led. Where you live can really affect how you live, so we are looking for an interim Corporate Director for Housing to drive this ambition forward.

    The Dorset Council plan has put suitable housing as one of our five key priority areas. The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a spotlight on the importance of our housing services as we responded to accommodating our rough sleepers and the increasing numbers of households presenting as homeless.

    We need to adapt and change our services to make sure we are able to meet the future housing needs of Dorset residents. These are exciting and demanding times with many opportunities to shape the future of housing in Dorset as we develop our accommodation and homelessness strategies and sign off our new housing allocations policy.

    You will oversee our ambitious Building Better Lives Programme that will ensure we have the right type of flexible accommodation for all our residents including extra care schemes and affordable housing. We are developing our wrap-around multi-agency support for our homeless households and ensuring that our housing options in the private rented sector offer better health outcomes to our residents.

    Leading the strategic Community Safety Team, you will be involved with the work of the Community Safety Partnership as well as leading a programme of work focusing on improving housing and health and wellbeing outcomes for key parts of our community.

    We are looking for someone with experience and energy. You will be forward thinking and will work collaboratively with the leadership team across Adults and Housing. You will have a proven track record of leading local authority housing services, delivering key housing projects and programmes, and understand the opportunities of joining up work within the directorate.

    Distance from the office is no barrier to working for Dorset Council. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we rapidly implemented home working for 2500 employees. But, if you are looking to relocate here, then that's great too. With our offices closed to the public and the majority of our staff working from home you will need to be able to show leadership in our virtual world of online meetings, webinars and conferences.

    We are currently working with a local authority based in the Essex area, who are looking to take on a Senior Planner for an initial 3-month contract, but this is highly likely to roll on for a considerable length of time. The view would be to join the authority and work on a range of applications, up to approx. 100 dwellings. This role will involve:

    • Carrying out site inspections.
    • Negotiating and communicating with applicants, agents and consultees.
    • Advising members of the public, parish councils and District Councillors.
    • Assessing proposals in line with national and local planning policies and guidance and all other material considerations (including representations made by consultees).
    • Preparing reports and making recommendations on delegated planning applications and to Planning Committees.
    • Issuing decision notices in accordance with the statutory and other procedures of the department including incorporating conditions and where necessary reasons for refusal.
    • Providing written and verbal advice on development management to members of the public, developers, Parish Councils, District Councillors and others.

    There is some flexibility with home working, and this can be negotiated once successfully through the interview stage.
