Job Description

36.25 hours per week

This brand new role offers an exciting opportunity to gain experience in working directly with, and supporting, the Chief Executive and Board of Castles & Coasts Housing Association. This is a high-profile role offering the opportunity to the right person to grow and develop their skills within the Corporate and Governance Team.

We are looking for someone who takes immense pride in their work and understands the importance of delivering work of great accuracy and quality. Whilst many of the tasks can be taught to the right candidate, you will need an excellent standard of grammar and syntax and have a real eye for detail. You will also be very comfortable in working with and communicating effectively with a wide range of people and will understand the importance of confidentiality and diplomacy.

This role could be suited to people from a variety of backgrounds. Although an understanding of social housing and the third sector would be useful, it is not a prerequisite. You may have worked in a legal setting, or in a regulated environment, with an understanding of the importance of compliance.

Castles & Coasts owns and manages more than 7,000 homes across the North of England. Our vision is to be a continuously improving organisation with customers at the heart of everything we do. Our services are locally-focused, suited to our customers' needs and lifestyles and designed to be good value.

If you like what you read about this role, please complete our application process. If you choose to apply and are successful, you will be rewarded on all levels - a great place to work, great places to live and a great team of people to work with.
