Additional Information:

Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.

The Strategic Growth Team is a new, small multi-disciplinary team within the Strategy, Performance and Delivery Unit at Homes England. Its remit is to lead on, and provide support to, large-scale, complex and innovative projects that require cross-boundary, cross-government and cross-discipline working, such as the Cambridge-Milton Keynes-Oxford Arc, Thames Estuary opportunities and rail related growth around Crossrail, HS1 and HS2.

To support the team, we are looking to recruit a talented professional with strategic planning backgrounds and with a range of experience that spans delivery and cross-government working to help shape policy and influence key decisions. Frequent travel to London will be required as well as to the strategic growth areas.

About Homes England:
Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.

Homes England brings together land, money, expertise, and planning & compulsory purchase powers, with a clear remit to facilitate delivery of sufficient new homes, where they are most needed, to deliver a sustained improvement in affordability.  We work locally in individual communities to help meet local priorities.

We invest mostly in building new homes, but also in creating employment floor space and other community facilities, in cities, towns and villages across the country. The homes we fund include affordable homes for rent and sale, and homes for rent or sale at market prices. Our investment helps build around half of all new homes built in England each year. It also helps increase local growth by creating jobs and supporting businesses.

We own public land, which we sell to house builders and others. This is one of the ways in which we overcome barriers to development and help increase the speed with which house builders can build new homes.

Homes England is an executive non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government.

Homes England was launched by the Secretary of State on 11 January 2018. Homes England is the trading name of Homes and Communities Agency. To find out more about what we do please visit: www.gov.uk/government/organisations/homes-england.
