Job description
Adviser to the Chief Executive
Salary: London - £43,795 per annum + Excellent Benefits
Location: London
Contract: Permanent

The National Housing Federation (NHF) is the voice of housing associations in England. We are the trade body to almost 600 housing associations, who have grown from philanthropic roots to provide 2.6 million homes to around 6 million people. 
Housing associations are social landlords, and are the largest providers of homes for social rents in the country. We and our members, believe that everyone should be able to live in a great quality home that they can afford. 

Many housing associations are also developers in their own right, building around a quarter of new homes every year, and build almost all new social housing. Our sector is not-for-profit, investing its revenues into the people and communities we serve. 
We’re looking for an adviser who will work directly to the chief executive and support the smooth running, intelligence sharing and decision making across the NHF. You will have both confident verbal communication skills and excellent written skills, with the opportunity to craft speeches and draft briefings for the chief executive on our vital work, ranging from ending homelessness to decarbonising the nation’s homes. By working with colleagues across the organisation you will ensure the chief executive is well briefed ahead of meetings with government, officials, stakeholders and members. 

Excellent organisational and project management skills and abilities are also essential as you will be responsible for coordinating the business planning process and supporting the chief executive and Leadership Team in reporting our progress within the organisation and to members. Our members, housing associations, provide homes for around six million people. You will be required to put these members at the heart of the work you do, and support our ambitious vision – for a country where everyone can live in a quality home they can afford. 

The NHF has recently published its equality, diversity and inclusion strategy, which was co-created with staff. We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and we value the contribution each individual makes to our work.  The NHF is committed to ensuring our workforce reflects the diversity of the society in which we live and encourage applications from people of all different backgrounds, regardless of all protected characteristics or social background. 
We are a disability confident employer and if you are a disabled person who demonstrates you meet the skills and experience we consider essential for the role, we will offer you an interview.

Closing date for applications: 25 January 2021
Interview date: 5 February 2021

Please note: if we receive a high number of applications, we reserve the right to close the advert, before the closing date
