Launched in February 2018, Unitas is Stoke on Trent Council’s repair and maintenance company, carrying out repairs and maintenance to more than18,000 homes and approximately 600 public buildings across the city.  Unitas has a strong workforce of more than 450 employees delivering several services across all business areas; we work with our tenants and partners to create a positive local impact and to bring improvements and opportunities for our communities.

We are very proud at Unitas to have been shortlisted for DLO of the Year at the prestigious UK Housing Awards 2019, within our first year of trading and Stoke-on-Trent City Council winning the accolade of Council of the Year for its innovative and strategic approach towards housing.

Dedicated to providing customers with the highest standards of service, investing our revenues locally, improving the quality of housing and property through strategic investment and further developing and growing this innovative business, requires strong leadership. 

In order to further realise our ambition we require an ambitious, forward-thinking, commercially savvy Director, with extensive experience in the housing sector, who can lead the Unitas organisation on an upward trajectory and support the next phase of our journey.    

Responsible for directing and leading the management team through all phases of a project, client liaison and generating new business, you will lead the entire Unitas Operation.  Building and operating a first-class business stream to achieve company objectives, you will develop future strategies and business plans, ensuring that forecast and budgets are established.   Crucial to this role will be the ability to inspire and motivate a multi-disciplinary workforce at every level, providing efficient and cost-effective services that meet our environmental objectives, as well as the ability to build strong working relationships with local and national government and across a diverse, local business community.

This is a real opportunity for the right person with an appetite for fresh thinking to make a big difference to the future of Unitas, working alongside a talented team of colleagues, with passion and commitment to excellence across all areas of the business. All competencies are underpinned by the mission, vision and values that Unitas has at its heart.
