    Midland Heart Ltd

Ref: GSe49401

Midland Heart are a charitable registered provider of Social Housing, headquartered in Birmingham, with operations throughout the Midlands; a significant landlord, we have c.33,000 properties under management. Our financial performance is strong with a turnover in 2017/18 of around £194 million, generating a surplus of £48m.

We are extremely proud of our A1 (stable) credit rating from Moodys which evidences our strong financial performance. We have consistently improved our financial and operational performance over the last few years. We have achieved high levels of customer satisfaction and strong financial results which enable us to reinvest all of our growing surplus into our existing stock as well as into building new homes.

Our mission is simple: we deliver homes and services that enable our customers to live independently. Whether that is through access to good quality housing for those who would otherwise struggle to afford homes in the private rented sector; or through providing care and support services, to assist them to live independently.

We know that a skilled and diverse Board is critical to our success and as we head into a new corporate plan we are looking to recruit a new board member to join the Board in spring 2019. The role of a Board member is to provide stewardship of the business beyond their technical areas of expertise. All Board members are also members of Board committees relevant to their skills and experience.

Our business is one where anyone can succeed, regardless of their backgrounds, if they demonstrate the capacity and capability as well as the right behaviours and values. Our Board is no different; we want it to reflect the geographies across which we operate. We know that diverse Boards will make better decisions.

If you are an experienced leader, ideally with an understanding of operational delivery in the housing sector and/or experience of delivering a step change in customer service, we’d very much like to hear from you.
