  • Dear Candidate,


    Thank you for your interest in becoming the new Service Director, Housing at Luton Council. This is an exciting time for Luton; a chance to drive development and make a real difference to our future.


    As a Council, we have everything we need to ensure our residents flourish, although housing supply remains an ongoing challenge amongst our diverse communities. To help tackle this, we have defined a bold agenda to eradicate poverty across the borough, which currently affects 40% of residents in four wards alone – this will change by 2040.


    We seek a highly experienced leader to provide critical strategic direction and continually boost performance across the Council’s full range of housing services, including Building & Technical Services, Housing Operations, Housing Needs and Housing Development. Resident engagement is vital to our future and you must therefore possess a strong ability to connect, enthuse and collaborate with our diverse range of communities, as well as with key housing partners and your talented workforce.


    With a proven track record of leading change within a housing context, you will address prime challenges across the borough, including reducing temporary accommodation levels and rough sleeping, driving forward plans for new build homes and ensuring our housing stock is safe and of the highest possible quality for residents. You will also optimise housing opportunities in line with our mission to build up to 400 new units over the next four years.


    Ready to realise the remarkable? If you have the vision, enthusiasm and experience to make a lasting difference to Luton and our people, we want to hear from you. Together, let’s make everyone feel at home in Luton.


    Yours sincerely,

    Nicola Monk

    Interim Corporate Director, Customer and Commercial
