Homes England seeks strategic leaders to join Board

Housing and local government experts are being invited to apply to join Homes England’s Board, Government has announced.

Following the appointment of new Chief Executive, Peter Denton, the agency is now looking to bolster its leadership team by adding up to three new Non-Executive Directors.

In particular, it is looking for a senior leader from the following areas; housebuilding and development, affordable housing, local government, or construction.

Led by Chair Peter Freeman, Homes England’s Board is tasked with providing strategic leadership to the agency and promoting long term, sustainable success, ensuring the delivery of its strategic objectives.

The positions come at a pivotal time, as the agency enters a new phase.

Peter Freeman, Chair of Homes England, said: “As the country moves beyond its current challenges, Homes England’s role has never been so important.

“We are working closely with the Government to be an even stronger institution that can galvanise a housing-led recovery, connecting other ambitious organisations and using our resources to work strategically across the country to create jobs, homes, and long-term partnerships in places. Homes England’s Non-Executive Directors play a vital role in this, which is why we are looking for passionate, dynamic leaders to join us.”

Peter Denton, currently Chief Executive of the Hyde Group, will take up his post at Homes England later this year. He has a strong track record of working in strategic leadership and Board roles at large scale global real estate, banking and not for profit organisations.

Applications are now open and will close 12 August 2021. More information about the roles and how to apply can be found on the Government Public Appointments website.
