Greenfields Community Housing – Chief Executive

We are in an era in social housing where questions are being asked about how landlords remain accountable and true to their core purpose. At Greenfields we are a community gateway association, one which seeks to put residents at the heart of everything we do. But that does not mean that we can afford to be complacent. We continue to ask ourselves questions about how the principles of genuine involvement and influence remain relevant, as the resident population and expectations are changing.

Job Type: Permanent
Closing date: July 04 2018
