Newydd Housing Association provides nearly 3,000 homes across Mid and South Wales.  As a charitable organisation, our vision is to deliver affordable homes and support sustainable communities, taking considerable pride in the excellent services we provide for all our tenants and customers. Our strong people focus is highlighted by recently retaining the Investors in People Standard, and the entire organisation’s positive response to the many challenges posed by the coronavirus demonstrated Newydd’s team ethos and unwavering commitment to our customers.

We want to be known as a beacon of excellence in everything that we do. Already an ambitious and financially strong organisation, we are determined to continue developing and improving. It’s an exciting time across our sector, and we welcome the opportunity to help address some of the significant challenges facing our sector, such as decarbonisation and the provision of more affordable homes. Our new Chief Executive will help us innovate, engage and empower our teams and communities, and ensure that our successful organisation achieves its considerable potential.

Whether your career progression to date has been within the social housing, public, private or not for profit sectors, you’ll bring to us significant insight into successful leadership in a regulated environment.  You will have strong business acumen with a proven track record of delivering continuous improvement and high-quality services that put the customer at the heart of everything you do.  You will be an effective ambassador to grow our networks and uphold our positive reputation with our stakeholders. Regardless of background, or whether you’re a current or aspirant Chief Executive, what we do expect is that you’ll challenge us, share our passion for collaborative partnership working and deliver the many opportunities that are open to us.
