Do you have experience of developing social housing sites? Can you apply your negotiation and business planning skills in a community-led housing setting?

St Ann’s Redevelopment Trust (StART) is a Community Land Trust negotiating with the Greater London Authority and Haringey Council to secure genuinely affordable housing in perpetuity on the St Ann’s Hospital site in Haringey, London.

We require someone to help us take forward our negotiations and stakeholder liaison and realise our aspirations. This requires a track record in negotiating with senior level local government officers and members, an excellent grasp of social housing scheme viability and a comprehensive knowledge of the procurement and development process on public land.

Crucially, you will also feel comfortable working in and appreciate the ethos of a volunteer-led community organisation. You will need to act as liaison between us and the major stakeholders in the development of the site and be able to interpret complex issues for us while also being steered strategically by the StART membership.

This is initially a one year, fixed term contract for 28 hours a week.

Salary £45,000 pro rata.

For a job description and information pack, please visit our website: www.startharingey.co.uk.

Closing date for applications midnight 28th May 2019.

Interviews on 13th June 2019.

We are striving to be more representative of our local community and so particularly welcome applications from members of the BAME community.
