The Task Force is recruiting!

Since being founded in 2017, the Right to Build Task Force has been supporting local authorities, land owners, developers and community groups to bring forward more opportunities for custom and self build housing. And now it is recruiting for a part-time member of the team.

To scale up the number of clients it supports, the Task Force is looking for a reliable, methodical and pragmatic Office Manager who will keep meticulous records and take the administration of the Task Force in their stride. The role is a flexible 3 days per week (22.5h) working from home.

How the Task Force operates

The Task Force works with a panel of custom and self build experts who provide written advice, workshops and now largely webinars to its client base across England. These help grow understanding and good practice around the custom and self build sector, supporting more people to have input into a home that suits their needs. For an overview of custom and self build, visit NaCSBA’s Self Build Portal..

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government are funding the Task Force to continue its work, and this support is enabling the Task Force to offer a free webinar session to all local authorities, providing a thorough introduction to the Right to Build and custom and self build housing for planning officers and councillors.
