We are brave, we are ambitious, we are honest, and we are Citizen!


This is a great opportunity for you to join one of the UK’s most trusted social housing providers. 


Citizen owns and manages 30,000 homes across the West Midlands, including diverse communities from urban tower blocks to rural villages and towns; but we provide more than housing – our homes are a foundation for life.


We are proud to be an organisation which deals directly with the consequences of our housing crisis by providing homes for people who can’t access them on the market.


We are a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity. All the money we make goes back into improving our homes and services and building new homes so that we can help more people.


Working for Citizen not only offers you the chance to work for an award-winning, big-hitting organisation in the West Midlands, it gives you the opportunity to work for an organisation with a heart and a clear social purpose.


It doesn’t matter which function you work in, being part of our team will give you the chance to play your own part in making a very real difference to people’s lives. 


To join us you will have the ability to take ownership and responsibility for delivering a consistently high level of service within your team and across the business as a whole.  You’ll be positive, optimistic and solutions-focused in everything you do even in the face of challenges, and you will believe passionately in the social value derived from delivering outstanding services to Citizen customers and colleagues.


We have a great opportunity for an Asset Manager to join our Strategic Asset Management team. In a rapidly changing external environment focussed on building safety and decarbonisation it is a time to rethink and replan how we manage our property portfolio and we are seeking a pioneering strategic thinker who can embrace challenge, respond to tight timescales and help develop our strategic direction.


You will be experienced in working with property data, planning investment strategies, and implementing an approach to maximising the performance of the assets whilst ensuring we meet all statutory requirements and service standards. You will also be skilled with appraising options to support continued investment or disposal across a wide and varied stock portfolio.


You will have a clear understanding of the current operating environment and the implications of significant new requirements relating to building safety, decarbonisation, and emerging Government standards. In addition to the above, you will be a strong communicator and will thrive in a work environment centred around collaboration.


To be successful in this role you must be educated to degree level or have demonstrable experience in a property or equivalent discipline. You will also have a track record of delivering asset management services combined with deep knowledge of stock appraisal tools and assumptions and sound understanding of Net Present value appraisal techniques and how to apply them.


So, if you think you have the technical know-how and can demonstrate the people skills we’re looking for, we really want to hear from you.
