With more than 6,000 homes and 260 dedicated team members, Tai Calon Community Housing is the largest social housing landlord in the Blaenau Gwent County Borough. Much more than simply a social landlord, we are one of the area’s largest employers and an anchor organisation alongside a range of partners delivering improved economic and social well-being outcomes. Having invested over £120 million in our homes, we have recently commenced our new-build programme and we are developing an ambitious five-year Corporate Plan.

It’s an exciting time to join us and an opportunity to have a huge impact by building on our many recent successes. We are looking for an exceptional and inspiring Chief Executive who will further develop and empower our teams, ensuring we deliver exceptional customer service and a culture of sustained transformation and improvement.

With executive leadership experience gained within the social housing, public, private or not for profit sectors you’ll bring a commitment to working in partnership with our many stakeholders, especially our customers, and a passion for empowering communities. As a motivational leader who appreciates the critical role that a community mutual organisation such as ours has to play, your leadership style will be inclusive, engaging and highly values based. You’ll be an ambitious current or aspiring Chief Executive who appreciates the many opportunities open to us and someone who will thrive in helping us embrace our exciting and challenging agenda.
