The Role

Formed in July 2017, Connexus brought together two successful housing groups providing homes and delivering services across Herefordshire, Shropshire and Gloucester. With a combined portfolio of over 10,000 homes, a £56m turnover, and more than 600 staff we are an important regional provider whilst also having a key role as place-shaper and community anchor.

You will join Connexus at an exciting time to lead the second phase of our development as one organisation, with a unique opportunity to recruit two new Executive Directors for your team, developing our new organisational culture and extending our influence and reach. There is ample opportunity.

We have a strong financial position, an ambitious development programme, recently strengthened governance, a willingness to innovate, excellent local partnerships and a great reputation for housing, well-being, place-shaping and regeneration.

You will join a dynamic senior management and other team colleagues keen to make an even greater  positive difference to the lives of the people and communities we serve.

We seek a compelling leader as our Chief Executive with an executive level track record in housing, a strong people focussed approach, able to energise, engage and inspire our team, able to build close working relationships with partners, committed to fulfilling our wider well being and place shaping role, with a track record of innovation, able to work with complexity whilst giving assurance and with sound business acumen.  

Social value is as important to us as providing great value for money.  

Working with us also offers the opportunity to live in some of the most stunning countryside, villages, towns or cities in the UK.
