Job Description

The Role:

As part of the new Innovation and Marketing function, we’re looking for an Innovation Manager who will lead a team of Product Development Coordinators to research, design and develop new products and services to grow our customer and stakeholder offer and generate new income for Thirteen.

The Person:

You will be an experienced manager with an in-depth understanding of innovation projects and experience of new product development to achieve business growth. You will have a strong commercial approach to understanding customer needs with the ability to identify and progress opportunities that will enhance the customer experience and accelerate innovation projects across Thirteen.

The future is exciting, and we only want the best to be part of it.

At Thirteen we're about homes and so much more.....

At Thirteen, we’re more than just a landlord. We believe everyone is an individual. That’s why we don’t just provide properties; we offer a home to suit each person’s needs.

And we’re not just about somewhere to live; our range of extra services means we can give people a helping hand specifically tailored to them if they need it.

Our strength, capacity and ambition to deliver what our customers need means we can change things for the better.

We’re the largest housing association in the North East and among the biggest 25 nationally.  Today we own and manage some 34,000 properties in the North East region, 30,000 of them in the Tees Valley. Thirteen is still an organisation that’s local at its heart - and although our work is largely in the Tees Valley, we welcome applications from further afield because our ways of working mean we can often be flexible about where our colleagues are based.

Our skilled colleagues and board directors work tirelessly to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude to ensure a high-quality customer experience.  We welcome applications form people of all backgrounds to join our committed team.

So come and be part of making a difference. Great days for everyone are made at Thirteen.

Are you up for the challenge of bringing our vision to life and having great days at work?
