Our Coventry office will be relocating to 3 Area Central,Birmingham,B1 2AX in September 2024.

A bit about the role...

You will be joining a friendly and highly talented team who are committed to working hard in a collaborative way, solving problems to drive progress and bring about positive change for both communities and wider society. You will be working with seven senior Economists and three Economists under the Head of Economics, Jo Brotherhood.

A bit about you…

Whilst our day job is to deliver first class economic advice and services across the Agency and to our stakeholders, you will be used to "spinning several plates" at once, leading and... delivering project-level economic cases, looking after data for programme and agency reporting, providing direction, undertaking research, influencing policy with evidence and always looking for ways to improve and innovate.

You will be resilient and comfortable working with delivery staff across disciplines (strategy, planning, legal, sustainability, financial investment, risk) and your discussions will always be shaped by a good understanding of the commercial and operational impact of what we do as an Economics team.

Who are we?

Homes England

The Housing and Regeneration Agency

We believe that affordable, quality homes in well-designed places are key to improving people’s lives. As the government’s housing and regeneration agency, we create thriving new places and transform urban areas, combining the full breadth of our powers, expertise, land, capital and influence to bring investment to communities and get more homes built.

How? We form long-term partnerships that bridge the gap between the public and private sector to meet local needs and aspirations. We use our influence to champion the creation of sustainable homes, communities and places that are brilliantly designed for the people that live there now, and in the future. And we use our funding and support to build a more resilient, diverse and innovative housing sector, helping new entrants in the market, encouraging modern methods of construction and design, and promoting the utmost attention to building safety.

Together with our partners, we’re accelerating the pace of house building, remediation and regeneration across the country, as we seek to deliver ever more affordable homes in places people are proud to call home for generations to come.

What we offer...

As well as a competitive salary and 33 days annual leave, we are committed to 50/50 hybrid working. We’ll support you, wherever possible, so that you don’t miss out on what matters to you.

Membership of the Homes and Communities Agency Pension Scheme, which is a contributory defined benefit scheme with the amount you receive on retirement based on your salary and years worked at the Agency.

Internal applicants: please note that if you are successful, the salary you are offered will be in accordance with our pay controls and pay policy. You can find these on the recruitment pages of the intranet.

If you ever need a bit of extra help, we have a great employee assistance programme, financial wellbeing support and access to many great discounts with leading high street names.

Our range of network groups are also there to support you to be yourself at work and play a key role in helping shape our future.

If you are a member of a professional body, we’ll pay for your membership and once you get your digital kit, you’ll be good to go.

Homes England are a geographically diverse community. We work to a 50/50 office/ home based model. Moving back into our office environments has enabled us to utilise our space and time together in the most collaborative way.

We would encourage all applicants to apply as soon as possible as we may close vacancies early should we receive a high number of applications.

We also encourage you to apply using the full application option as opposed to quick apply, this is especially important if you would like to indicate to us that you would like to be considered under the disability confident scheme.
