Ref: GSe59840

We are an ambitious and vibrant not for profit social housing organisation with nearly 6,000 quality homes across Bridgend, South Wales. Having invested extensively in our housing stock since transfer in 2003, we provide homes where people feel happy and safe, contributing to our bigger vision of helping build a better Wales. As an actively developing housing provider we are supporting the housing provision goals of Welsh Government, and to ensure we maximise our local and national impact we proactively collaborate with a broad spectrum of partners.

This is an outstanding opportunity to utilise the full extent of your innovation, leadership and engagement skills. With people at the heart of everything we do, our next Chief Executive will be an exceptional and empowering leader who will ensure we deliver the best possible outcomes for our customers and communities. Responsible for leading our strategy, the remit of the role is broad and ultimately responsible for delivering positive change and influencing our direction over the coming years.

Having gained significant leadership experience in a complex, customer focused environment you’ll bring to us a collaborative style and a track record of capitalising upon new opportunities. Committed to remaining independent and building even stronger stakeholder relationships, we are looking for a visible and tenacious leader with a passion for performance, digital transformation and developing people. With a strong alignment to our values and ambitions, you’ll have the opportunity here to work with a highly committed Board and staff group who thrive on having a sustainable impact across our communities.
