Director of Estates

LHA is a charity providing affordable accommodation to young working people and students living in Central London. LHA operates 14 London hostels providing nearly 2000 bed spaces. LHA provides accommodation in the boroughs of Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea, Camden, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Hounslow and Islington. A structure of 70 paid staff and over 150 volunteers provide support services. LHA offers accommodation services, which provide a stepping stone to enable young people to advance their careers and education, whilst meeting residents’ reasonable needs and enhancing their well-being.

LHA has ambitious growth plans, focused on growing both its bed numbers and social impact. In the short term, there is a requirement to increase bed spaces by 500 over the next 5 years. As such a Director of Estates is required to develop the strategic 10-year plan, tasked with undertaking a full review of the existing portfolio, identifying opportunity for site acquisition and development of new build assets alongside refurbishment of current properties. Also vital to the long-term strategy is creation of sustainability and environment deliverables across the portfolio.

The successful candidate will demonstrate experience of overseeing land acquisition and new build development preferably within the London and residential markets. Strong stakeholder management skills and an influential nature are key to success in the role, owing to engagement with Trustees, internal teams and external consultants.
