Oxford City Housing was established to drive housing growth in the city, delivering both affordable and social rented homes and mixed tenure housing developments at scale. The city needs 28,000 new homes by 2031 and 3,500 households are on the local housing register. Oxfordshire as a whole needs 100,000 new homes. We are seizing the opportunity provided by changes in public sector borrowing regulations to embark on a large-scale development programme, bringing 2000 new homes to the city. We are now strengthening and diversifying our board with the appointment of two Non-Executive Directors.
As we move forward with our objective, it is essential that we have in place the right governance to drive and underpin our ambition. We are looking for experienced business leaders to provide independent oversight and constructive challenge to the leadership team and use their professional expertise and experience to help secure our development programme.
It is important that our board is balanced in terms of skill set, professional background and diversity. We are looking for two Non-Executive Directors. One will be an experienced and professionally qualified finance director with experience in the housing development sector, either with a registered provider or a private sector developer. The second will be a residential specialist with Chief Executive or Director level experience and expertise in land, development and/or sales, together with knowledge of the Oxford/wider Oxfordshire housing development market.
This is a superb opportunity for you to use your expertise and experience, helping Oxford City Housing contribute to the city’s future housing needs. By helping ensure our Board is as effective as possible and through providing excellent advice, support and challenge to our leadership team, you will play a major part in delivering affordable, green housing supply in Oxford.
