Group Director – Strategic Partnerships and Growth

Futures Housing Group currently provides around 10,000 affordable homes throughout the East Midlands, and serves more than 20,000 customers. With a track record of high Performance and a wholehearted commitment to customer service, we are both confident and ambitious about our continued growth and success. The Social Housing Regulator has awarded us the highest ratings for governance and financial viability, and 2019 saw us deliver our highest ever turnover and surplus. We are well on the way to meeting our target of building 1,000 new homes by spring 2020 – and subsequently delivering more than 2,200 by 2023. We’re about to launch our new corporate plan through to 2023, with an overarching aim to be a significant regional social house builder – consolidating our achievements to date and continuing to set high expectations of ourselves. There is a genuine sense of momentum and potential within the organisation and it’s the ideal place for those who thrive on opportunity and high expectations.

As Group Director – Strategic Partnerships and Growth you will take the strategic lead on vital strands of our work that together form a central part of our growth strategy. These include a crucial, outward-facing role in establishing strategic partnerships and business relationships that can support our growth agenda, and connect us to new opportunities. It’s a highly visible role, within and outside the organisation; and you can expect to work closely with our Board and a wide  range of external stakeholders. You’ll also lead on our strategic development and asset maximisation programme, ensuring a positive return on investment and that we continue to maintain and care for our housing stock. You’ll also have the opportunity to lead on our sustainability agenda, embedding this ethos into how we work, and what we build. And as part of the Group’s corporate leadership team, you’ll be a visible and influential leader, who can influence and advise across the full spectrum of our work.

It’s a role that demands a proven track record of leading the delivery of high value development schemes and identifying and realising growth opportunities. You’ll bring a highly developed insight into the current property market, and your sharp commercial approach will be rooted in a commitment to delivering the very best value and return for our customers.
