Dear Candidate

Positive About Disabled People - Investors In People

Thank you for showing an interest in this exciting role - I sincerely hope you will apply.

The Housing Plus Group is a ‘family’ of companies with a core purpose to provide a range of homes and services for people who cannot access these services on their own. We want to make a positive difference to the lives of our tenants and customers, and to the communities in which they live.

We are an ambitious organisation and we want to grow and diversify our business to ensure we deliver even better homes and services in the years ahead. We see the challenges currently facing our business and sector as an opportunity and we want to position our business to take best advantage. Whilst we are a ‘not for profit’ organisation we have a strong commercial focus and a successful business ethos. We have developed strong brands for each of our businesses and products, each with its own mission and business focus. There are more details in this pack. We are a Group that works together to deliver success across all business streams and this new post will be involved in working with and supporting all of our brands.

As an experienced leader within the People Management profession, you’ll know the value you can add to the Group as a whole - right up to Board level. We believe this is an exciting opportunity for someone who has the ambition and track record to further shape our culture, strategically develop our talent and align our People Management practices in a way that is supportive of a forward thinking social enterprise.

This is not an operational role, although you will have had a strong grounding in all aspects of People Management enabling you to set professional standards and cultural norms within which your team supports business leaders. In essence this will be a risked assessed approach to People Management, connecting the strategic, commercial and business dimensions of People Management to the delivery of service excellence, across the Group.

At Housing Plus, we’re together to make a difference. If you share our vision and values, and you have the ambition, passion and skills to develop a People Management function that will truly make a difference - we want to hear from you!

I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours faithfully

Jan Goode
Director of Customer Services
