Chief Executive – Eden Housing Association

Location(s): Cumbria
Closing date: 14 Oct 2022
Salary: c.£100k

About the role

Eden Housing Association is a niche community based housing provider that is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Based in Penrith, we are clear about our ambitions and have confidence in retaining an independent future, since the organisation plays a critical role in providing affordable homes and valuable services across rural communities. Service quality is good, and delivered by a fantastic, caring and motivated staff team and as a smaller provider we continue to make a significant impact.

Following a strategic review by the board we are now recruiting our new Chief Executive who will play a crucial role in ensuring that we can continue to make that vital contribution to villages, towns and parishes across our rural neighbourhoods. Whilst we are operating in a challenging environment with a cost of living crisis, we do feel that our new Chief Executive will be starting with a solid foundation. We seek a leader who will build upon our culture, working closely with staff and Board to inspire and support.

You may be a first time Chief Executive, keen to prove yourself at this level or you may already be a Chief Executive looking for change. However, you are likely to have a strong belief in the impact that social housing can make. This is rewarding, meaningful and impactful work and will suit a housing professional who shares the belief that smaller providers can be efficient and have a crucial role to play across the social housing landscape
