We believe giving you choice over where and how you work will improve both your wellbeing and your performance – creating a win-win situation for you, for us and for the thousands of people who rely on us.


About the Director of People and Technology role


Enjoying an enviable quality of life in picturesque Devon, you will report directly to the Chief Executive as you champion best practice in IT, assurance, corporate culture, customer service and employee engagement. Your remit will also span data protection, HR, legal and regulatory issues, complaint management, quality, health and safety and communications, so you will be crucial to our ongoing development – and to the delivery of outstanding services for our residents.


In particular, you will ensure that key business decisions are shaped by the needs of our diverse customer groups and will make certain that they have a strong and positive voice. Furthermore, you will provide inspiring leadership to your teams as you drive continuous improvement and actively mitigate risk whilst overseeing our compliance with evolving legislation and regulations.

Highly experienced in strategic leadership positions, ideally within a social housing environment, you will be skilled in managing IT, Digital and HR teams, fully familiar with risk assurance and data protection, and capable of building effective relationships with wide-ranging stakeholders.


If you are formally qualified as lead auditor, GDPR practitioner or HR professional, so much the better, but it’s your tenacity, problem-solving skills and deep determination to make a difference that will matter most.

  • Flexible working with time based at home
