About the role

In our new Chief Executive, we are looking for someone who will be able to take us forward so that we further enhance our reputation as an organisation and build on the great things we have achieved over the last couple of years. Establishing our Development Programme, overhauling our customer services and making best use of our assets are all “works in progress”. We need a Chief Executive who has in depth experience at a senior level in social housing – a strategic thinker who can also get their hands dirty when required; and someone who is fully conversant with what is necessary to provide assurance to the Board over controls and good governance. Most importantly however, we need someone who is a visible, inspiring and credible leader and ambassador – someone who is passionate about our purpose, and able to identify fully with our values.
