Executive Director (Investment and Growth), Silva Homes (currently Bracknell Forest Homes)

Bracknell, Berkshire

circa £110k plus attractive benefits

About Silva Homes

The association was established as Bracknell Forest Homes in 2007 (through stock transfer) and now has 6,200 homes in ownership and a further 1,100 leaseholders/shared owners. Silva has 210 employees and a turnover of £48m. Since transfer, the organisation has built 414 properties and acquired another 348. Their approved business plan is to build 1,100 homes over the next five years, but Silva’s aim is to maximise their capacity to develop new homes in the next iteration of the financial plan, having firmly grounded the investment needs of the organisation’s existing assets.

Although Silva Homes has significant financial capacity as well as high-quality services, the organisation’s new operating model and strategy has been designed to create a more agile organisation, generate efficiencies for investing in new homes and further increase customer focus with a significant emphasis on enhanced digital transactions. To facilitate this shift, a new organisational structure was agreed by the board and Silva havs recently recruited a new chief executive and the majority of the executive team.

About the role

The Executive Director (Investment & Growth) will lead the Development and Property Investment functions and play a pivotal role in delivering the association’s strategic objectives for existing and new assets. Silva is looking for an empowering leader with substantial experience of operating at a senior level in a complex asset-based and customer facing organisation. Extensive experience of delivering outstanding results in asset values and growth as well as operational and financial performance will be required. Up-to-date knowledge of legislative frameworks, regulatory requirements and key issues relevant to the post will also be important, as will the ability to work with boards and a wide range of stakeholders.
