Managing Director
Rural Homes Limited

South Devon Rural Housing Association (SDR) was established in 1958 as Dartington Housing Association. Evolving over 60 years into a strong, community-based organisation, it has sound working links with local communities and an enviable reputation in South Devon for its quality housing and services.

We see ourselves very much at the heart of our communities, offering a uniquely personal and caring service to our residents. Our role as a ‘niche’ provider enables us to get involved in housing activities that may not be of interest to others, often in partnership with local authorities.

Our development subsidiary Rural Homes Limited (RHL) is a for profit company set up to project manage building and refurbishment projects. RHL is wholly owned by South Devon Rural Housing Association and delivers cost effective development projects for SDR and other small housing providers across the South West.

Our current Managing Director at Rural Homes Limited is looking to retire early next year. He will be a hard act to follow so we need a really special candidate to fill his very large shoes!

We want to hear from you if you believe you have the ability to take Rural Homes forward as a business in the next stage of its growth. We need a leader skilled at engaging with customers, developers, contractors and other external stakeholders; someone with great negotiating skills and innovative ideas but who shares our ethos and values and wants to play a key role in a small, but perfectly formed community based social housing and care business.

To apply please forward a letter of application and a copy of your CV directly to Christine Candlish, Chief Executive at: Christine@southdevonrural.com

Closing Date: 12 Noon Wednesday 17th November 2021

We are currently expanding our Development Team at Rural Homes and looking to provide extra support for the Asset Management service provided to tenants of SDR. This role is therefore an ideal position for someone mid career who is looking to build and broaden their skills and experience.

Reporting to the MD of Rural Homes Limited, in this role, you will have the opportunity to seek out and progress new build housing opportunities, promote and deliver Community Led Housing Schemes and help to develop and implement a comprehensive Asset Management Strategy whilst also delivering a customer focused repairs service for our residents.

You’ll also need a keen eye for detail and strong project management skills, along with the ability to keep accurate records.
We want to hear from you if you’re energetic and enthusiastic. We need a team player, someone skilled at building relationships with residents, developers, contractors and other external stakeholders but who shares our ethos and values and wants to play a key role in a small, but perfectly formed community based social housing and care business.
