Hafod is one of the largest providers of housing, care and support in south Wales, committed to Making Lives Better for our customers and communities. With a turnover in excess of £60m, we continue to develop and grow and are proud to provide services which support people throughout their lifetime. Employing over 1,400 colleagues and with 6,000 homes across nine local authority areas, our services span social housing, home ownership, extra care, homecare, supported housing, support services, residential and nursing care. Focused on sustainable growth and a significant new development programme, we are making excellent progress in delivering our ambitious, yet achievable, strategic plan.

This is a significant strategic leadership role within Hafod as we look to grow and invest to deliver the best possible community outcomes. As a key member of our Executive team, and reporting to the Chief Executive, this is a career enhancing opportunity to influence organisation-wide issues. We are focused on continuous modernisation and would welcome candidates applying who bring fresh perspectives and a truly collaborative approach. Alongside leading our finance teams, the role will also lead our treasury and investment functions and will act as our Deputy Company Secretary.

As an energetic and inspirational leader with excellent communication skills, you’ll demonstrate a strong track record of building sustainable relationships internally and externally. With experience of a comparably complex and multi-stakeholder environment, this is an opportunity to utilise your business partnering approach and commercial mindset. Passionate about instigating positive change, we’ll encourage you to challenge the norm to ensure that we achieve our considerable potential over the coming years.
