Chief Operating Officer

Nottingham City Homes was set up as an Arm’s Length Management Organisation to manage Nottingham City Council’s housing stock. The ALMO set up two subsidiaries, NCH Enterprises Limited and NCH Registered Provider. Each entity built or purchased homes and provides affordable rented homes, market rented homes and homes for people who were homeless (temporary accommodation). In 2022 NCC decided to return the services to direct provision and required the repayment of a substantial amount of funding. The housing services (repairs and management) returned to the Council in April 2023, and the role of COO is to lead officer for NCH in:

  • Working with the Board to develop a business plan for appropriate asset disposals which
    enables repayment of sums owing to NCC while also supporting the Council’s strategic housing objectives
  • Supporting the development of a framework for management, monitoring and improvement of the services provided (by NCC and its contractors) to the 500 homes managed within the NCH group
  • Conducting a review of the company structure to develop proposals for a robust and financially viable structure following the disposal of assets
  • Ensuring that all regulatory, financial and compliance requirements are met.

We now have an opportunity for someone with experience who has worked at a senior level within the housing sector to bring expert and objective oversight and advice to this process. You should be able to bring professional insight and experience to this complex work. It’s important that your expertise is supported by a collaborative working style, which enables you to foster positive relationships across both organisations and provide support and challenge as required through this transition period.
