Lead us into the digital era. So we can be a leading force in social housing.

At Teign Housing, we’re passionate about giving our residents the best possible homes and our team the best and most flexible careers. Our culture of agile working means our 90 people enjoy an exceptional work-life balance, with the option of spending time based at home. We believe giving you choice over when, 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 Applications Team Leader role

Innovation in IT is central to our continued success, and you will ensure that our housing (Civica CX), financial management (Open Accounts), document management (Documotive) and asset management (Keystone) systems plus our customer portal and app (PanConnect) remain at the cutting edge. Working closely with the Head of IT & Digital, you will oversee all our software and champion digital inclusion for customers and colleagues alike. To make this happen, you will continuously review user needs whilst evaluating technology developments and will make detailed recommendations to deliver a far-reaching IT roadmap. What’s more, you will take ownership of key projects and suppliers, so you can expect an extremely high profile and considerable impact on our future development.

About you

Experienced in building IT capacity and enhancing user engagement, you should be skilled in managing IT and digital programmes and delivering customer-driven services. A background in a housing environment would be very useful, as would relevant software accreditations, but it’s your ability to champion positive change and get the most from systems, staff and suppliers that will matter most. Finally, it’s vital that you bring a highly analytical mindset and proven ability to assess data to reach clear, considered and visionary conclusions.


We are an Investor in People Platinum organisation, so you will be joining a company that creates a supportive high-performance culture. You can also expect to enjoy an excellent benefits package, including:

• Flexible working with time based at home
• Training opportunities
• 25 days’ leave plus bank holidays and discretionary leave between Christmas and New Year
• Pension scheme
• Free parking
• Employee Assistance Programme
• And much more

To take on this exciting opportunity as our Applications Team Leader, please apply with your CV and send to or complete the online application form.

We will interview suitable candidates upon receipt of their application and reserve the right to close the vacancy early. Please apply without delay to avoid disappointment.
