JOB OPENING – Rural Housing Enabler

Are you passionate to see affordable homes delivered for people who need them in rural Oxfordshire?

Could you help us enable people who provide critical services for local residents to actually live in the communities they serve?

With funds made available from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and channelled through the ACRE Network (Action with Communities in Rural England), CFO  is looking for someone to help us enable more affordable homes to be delivered in our smaller communities – where they are needed.

Working with our Local Authority and Registered Provider (Housing Association) partners, the postholder will form innovative partnerships with Parish Councils, the private sector, and others to increase the pipeline of rural affordable housing schemes and support delivery.

Working through the ACRE Network, there is also the opportunity to directly inform national policy and strategy.

We are looking for someone who understands the affordable housing development process in a rural context and how to make things happen.

The post is 5 days per week and initially fixed term until March 2025 with a salary of £31,000. JOB SHARE WILL BE CONSIDERED.
