Work with us

Corporate Services Director (6 month contract)
Walterton & Elgin Community Homes (WECH) holds a unique place in housing history, having taken over ownership and control of our homes from Westminster City Council in 1992, a defining moment in a long and arduous battle to preserve an established local community. Our pivotal ethos, ‘Residents In Control’ actively informs both operational and strategic thinking.  Together, our new Board and Executive Team have taken stock of WECH’s opportunities, aspirations and assets, and are now moving at pace to further improve our homes and the wellbeing of our residents.

WECH works closely in partnership with Westminster City Council on a number of strategic objectives, such as projects to reduce the impact of the Cost Of Living crisis and to decarbonise social housing stock in North Paddington.  We own 675 homes, including a substantial number of heritage street properties which have benefitted from a radical retrofit programme following transfer.

We are now looking for the right person to join us as Corporate Services Director (on a six month contract). The successful candidate will work with our committed Board and Executive Team to deliver our corporate priorities within the context of our unique heritage and resident control. They will be a qualified Accountant, be energetic, motivated, resilient and a strong team player who understands and supports our ethos.

WECH’s offices are located in central London and well served by public transport. Where we have sustained a philosophy of being accessible to our residents, our offices are open for business, and so ‘in person’ working will be required (with some flexibility). In return, we offer a good reward package and the satisfaction of making a difference in an innovative, dynamic organisation that continues to punch above its weight.
