Livin is a vibrant housing provider with a strong social purpose providing vital services to local people in their communities.  Well run with a reputation for the delivery of high quality services, in April 2017 we set out an ambition to grow our business.

Plan A, our Business Strategy, defines our purpose – to improve the lives of the people living in our homes and communities.  It sets clear priorities including: providing an excellent customer experience personalised to individual needs and circumstances; investing in homes; and providing much needed housing and support services to a growing demographic of older and vulnerable people. 

We are looking for an experienced leader in health, care and support services gained in a housing, supported housing or care and support setting.  With a passion and drive to inspire, you will lead the development and growth of our housing and support service offers to older and vulnerable people ensuring we achieve outcomes tailored to individuals’ needs. 

You will have experience of strategic partnerships, third-sector style funding, commercial and social enterprise and will be accountable for service development across these areas. 

In addition you will be a self-starter who thrives in an agile environment, has a natural ability to lead and inspire teams, first class communication and customer service skills and an ability to develop long term business relationships and networks in the local community.

At Livin we have a strong social purpose.  We provide homes to people who are living with complex needs and who are often isolated and vulnerable.  If you are passionate about making a difference to their lives this opportunity is for you.
