Homes England is the new national housing agency, recently launched to play a major role in fixing the housing market and enabling delivery of homes that our country needs.

Job Description

This is a key role working in Consumer Risk to embed a new approach to risk management in the Help to Buy and Affordable Housing Programmes at Homes England. 

The Help to Buy equity loan initiative is one of the government’s top priorities, aiming to encourage home ownership and stimulate new housing supply. Launched in April 2013 with an initial budget of £3.7 billion, the total programme budget is £22bn which aims to fund 360,000 Help to Buy home purchases out to 2021. 

The role provides an exciting opportunity to make a difference in an ambitious, new agency. Working in the Risk team as the second line of defence, you will support the on-going development and enhancement of best practice in risk management, and identification of risk mitigation strategies in respect of the Government’s home equity loan business and programmes. 

As such the role requires sound awareness of risk policy development and related procedures, development and maintenance of good working relationships at varying levels of the organisation and strong effective communication skills.
