Are you keen to create a legacy that leads and delivers an integrated service across the built environment?

Leading our Development and Asset departments and as a member of our Executive Team, you will inspire and provide leadership to our entire organisation.

We are an ambitious, resident- focused housing association that has delivered 500 affordable homes in the last five years and plans to deliver another 350 in the next three years. A strong and stable financial base, a commitment and reputation to deliver high-quality homes and services, strong bonds and relationships with customers, residents and partners underpin our enduring commitment to the borough of Tower Hamlets and London's East End. Currently rated G1/V1 by the Regulator of Social Housing, our goal remains to create vibrant communities where everyone can find their perfect home, fulfil their dreams and achieve our corporate vision: 'People will want to live at Gateway, People will want to work at Gateway'.

Gearing up to celebrate our 100th year serving London's East End and Tower Hamlets in 2026, we are looking for an inspiring and dynamic leader who is excited at the prospect of leading and achieving the full potential of an integrated service across our entire built environment. With extensive knowledge, experience and insight into Development, Sales, Asset Management, Sustainability and Building Safety, you would be a collaborative leader of people, able to dive into the details when required while maintaining a strategic vision.

Embracing the culture of East London with energy and passion and committed to ensuring Gateway Housing remains at the forefront of equality, diversity, and inclusion, you would set the example and deliver exceptionally high standards of building safety, resident engagement, and customer excellence.

Creating an outstanding delivery experience where customer homes are integrated with lifestyle, you will shape our development journey bringing creativity to regeneration and adding new properties to our existing portfolio. You will lead the achievement of our net zero strategy and enhance our commitment to building safety ensuring we remain at the forefront of industry good practice.

As an Investors in People - Gold accredited employer, we take enormous pride in offering an employment proposition carefully curated to be relevant and rewarding, enabling our employees to feel appreciated and perform their best work every day. In addition to competitive provisions on employee assistance, enhanced pension contributions, recognition, performance pay, comfortable and modern office space, hybrid working, generous leave entitlements, community involvement, training and development opportunities, health, well-being memberships, you can expect a reward package that goes well beyond a competitive salaries and benefits package.
