We’re proud of the role we play in creating the environment, economy and communities for our districts. Babergh and Mid Suffolk have consistently been voted amongst the top places to live in the UK.

Working together across our councils and with our partners in the public, private and voluntary sectors, we provide excellent services to our 190,000 residents across Babergh and Mid Suffolk – working hard to provide homes, support our communities, boost local economy, protect our environment and keep our districts clean, tidy and safe.

We are now looking for the right person to join our team in Strategic Property with the proper values, commitment and motivation to make a difference for our districts.

The Senior Housing Development Officer will take the lead in managing the delivery of new housing developments on behalf of the councils. You will have a relevant qualification, and experience of project managing housing developments from the site assembly stage to the end of Defects Liability Period. You will be a strong communicator with an ability to work with partners, contractors, Councillors and internal staff to deliver high quality developments for the councils. The job role sits within the Strategic Property team which oversees housing delivery and the management of strategic assets for the two councils.

* This role is normally based at our modern and conveniently located office accommodation, however, during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been working from home and it has worked really well for us.
