Interim Head of Repairs

Rochdale Boroughwide Housing
Full time Full day
(Fixed Term Contract to March 2023)

Are you a Pioneering Leader? We need you to head up our dynamic repairs service.

Are you looking for a new challenge in an organisation that is not afraid to be bold with its choices? An association that genuinely cares about both its customers and its employees. If so, we have the career for you!

At RBH we go beyond providing our customers with houses, we provide them with homes, support, and opportunities. We are a mutual Housing Association co-owned by our customers and our employees meaning they are at the heart of every decision we make and have the ability to shape the direction of the business.

As our Interim Head of Repairs, you will be responsible for leading a team of over 200 engaged, passionate and highly motivated individuals helping us to achieve our vision of ‘Succeeding Together to offer great services and great places to live and work’.

Over the last few years, we have made excellent progress in delivering a quality repairs service, but we are not complacent. We know there is more to do – we are on a journey to transform services including optimising the use of technology to ensure we can provide the best service to our customers. We want to take some time to review the progress we have made and plan the next stages of developing the service. We are therefore looking for an interim to help us to do this, but we will advertise the job on a permanent basis in early 2023.

This is a really exciting time to join us and contribute to the direction of the service and be an integral part of our journey to continuous improvement.

Our Core Values are important to us, so we are looking for someone who embodies these and is passionate about delivering our priorities and vision. If you feel that you have the skills, experience, ambition, and drive to make a real impact, we want to hear from you!

What’s in it for you?

As well as providing our customers with brilliant support we recognise that our employees are at the heart of the success of our society.

In return for your hard work, we offer a competitive salary up to 35 days Holiday all UK bank Holidays SMART working allowance.

We understand that your job isn’t defined by where it takes place, and we are passionate about providing our employees with a fantastic work life balance. To encourage this, we offer a generous holiday entitlement plus the possibility to buy 5 more days every year! In addition to this you will have the opportunity to complete a smart working agreement with your manager, this will allow you to create flexibility within your working day deciding where, when and how you do your role.

But that’s not all. We offer a reward package to suit everyone: including a matched contribution pension scheme, retail discounts, Employee assistance programme, healthcare cash plan, enhanced Maternity and Paternity pay and excellent learning and development opportunities and more.

Another thing we are passionate about is supporting our employee’s health and wellbeing. You will have access to our readily available wellbeing support package, including free counselling with our employee assistance programme, wellbeing champions, healthcare cash plan and our Able futures programme.

For an informal conversation about the role, you can book in a call with Nadhia Khan, Director of Customer and Communities, via email

The closing date for applications is 22 July 2022, however we will be reviewing candidates throughout the process so may close the role early if we receive a high response of exceptional applicants.
