Job Description


Senior Housing Development Officer – Data Manager Housing Property
Waverley Court

Salary: £37,589 - £44,934
Hours: 36 per week

This is a really exiting period within the Housing Service as we have a very ambitious house building programme combined with an equally aspiring investment programme for our existing 20,000 Council homes.

The Housing Revenue Account budget strategy plans to invest £2.8bn over ten years in new homes, existing homes and estates. The strategy also seeks to support the health and wellbeing of tenants and the transition towards a ‘net zero’ carbon city in which all forms of deprivation and inequality are reduced.

The capital investment programme seeks to deliver a holistic area-based approach to creating places where people want to live that keep them safe, secure, healthy and connected. This investment is required to deliver key Council commitments; including 20,000 affordable homes over 10 years and net zero carbon by 2030. It is also required to support delivery of statutory requirements for social landlords; including delivery of EESSH2 (Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing post 2020) by 2032.

We are seeking an experienced, highly motivated, customer focused, outcome driven individual who will have a range of skills to oversee the development and use of data systems to ensure that the Council’s business planning assumptions and capital investment programme are based on accurate, up to date stock condition and asset management information.
Key Responsibilities include:
• Creating and enforcing policies for effective data management.
• Formulating procedures for quality data collection to ensure adequacy, accuracy and legitimacy of data.
• Devising and implementing efficient and secure procedures for data handling and analysis.
• Establishing rules and procedures for data sharing with upper management, external stakeholders etc.
• Supporting others in the daily use of data systems and ensure adherence to legal and Council standards.
• Assisting with reports and data extraction when needed.
• Monitoring and analysing information and data systems and evaluate their performance to discover ways of enhancing them.
• Ensure systems are protected from security breaches and data losses.
• Troubleshoot data-related problems and identify maintenance or modifications.

We're committed to creating a workplace culture where all our people feel valued, included and able to be their best at work, and we recognise the benefits that a diverse workforce with different values, beliefs, experience, and backgrounds brings to us as an organisation.

Our salary range typically reflects the initial starting salary and annually increases until it reaches the top of the range.  For roles in grade 5 or above, annual increments in our contribution zones are dependent on achieving agreed performance goals.
