Gateway Housing Association is a community-based and developing housing association working mainly in Tower Hamlets. We have about 3,000 homes, 432 units of supported housing, a turnover of £27.4m, operating margin of 28.2% and surplus of £10.2m, as well as an in-house repairs team and Gateway Living Limited – our subsidiary set up to carry out outright sale homes.

Thanks to the legacy of our current CEO, Sheron Carter, Gateway is at an exciting phase of our evolution. With a strong and stable financial base as well as high-quality services, we are now looking for a CEO who can help us to increase our growth and invest even more in our people, empowering them to deliver tangibly better services. We also want to create even stronger bonds and relationships with our customers, residents, partners (such as the London Borough of Tower Hamlets) and other stakeholders.

We are looking for senior housing professionals with a strong track record of collaborative leadership and successfully leading organisational change. Experience of leading business growth and financial management will also be important, as will the ability to work effectively with boards and senior teams.

Expertise in stakeholder relationship management is a pre-requisite as developing and maintaining strong working relationships with local authority officers and elected members is essential in this role. Last but not least, we need someone with the drive and ambition to take us from “great” to “excellent”.
