Ref: GSe48706

Thank you for taking the time to consider this unique opportunity with one of the UK’s leading housing organisations.

With affordable homes now firmly at the top of the government’s agenda, there has never been a more exciting time to join us. With incredibly strong financial footings, we have ambitious plans to build 3,000 new homes over the next 5 years, alongside an investment program to provide a first class landlord
service to our 70,000 customers across the Midlands.

Here at Midland Heart, we are committed to supporting people to progress and reach the very top of our organisation and our new board development program aims to attract the most talented individuals to make the transition to non-executive director roles.

This innovative program supports the future development of candidates that have the skills, drive and passion to join a committee or board structure and make a real difference.

Who are we looking for? You will have the skills, drive and passion to join a committee or board structure and make a real difference. You will already thrive at Director level and consistently perform highly in your organisation. You will be a respected leader and skilled communicator, with the potential to become an effective board member ready to build on your skills through a non- executive role to supplement your experiences. Delivered by the Institute of Directors, our programme will invest in your skills through a tailored programme that includes mentoring and shadowing opportunities with our Board and Committees, as well as an induction into the affordable housing industry.

If successful, you will be working with our highly effective Board led by a strong leadership team, as highlighted by an in depth independent review by Deloitte. 

If you believe you have the skills and qualities for this programme and feel you can help us achieve our ambitions, I really look forward to hearing from you.

Glenn Harris, Chief Executive Officer
