Chief Executive

Our current Chief Executive is retiring later this year, having done a fantastic job in shaping Saxon Weald into the successful organisation it is today.  We are now seeking a new Chief Executive to take up this leadership role, build on our achievements and take our new strategic plan forward at this exciting, but challenging time for housing providers.

We have a clear vision for our future.  As a locally based housing association we work to help meet the housing need in Sussex and Hampshire by working effectively with the local authority and partners, delivering value for money and excellent customer services.    We are financially robust, have top ratings from the regulator and a passion for providing new places to live.

We’re looking for someone with big ambition for our organisation and our communities, someone with exceptional leadership skills who will drive performance and continued growth, empower and involve our staff teams and keep our customers and tenants at the heart of the business. 

Your successful track record of establishing and nurturing effective business relationships and partnerships will be underpinned by a sound understanding of the financial, regulatory and legal requirements to successfully manage an affordable housing business and drive continuous improvement across everything we do.

You’re likely to be an existing Chief Executive or Executive Director in a complex, regulated and customer-centric organisation with a genuine interest and passion in promoting the power of digital technology to transform our business for the future.   

This is a rewarding opportunity for the right person to steer us on the next leg of our journey.  It’s the people, not properties, which make Saxon Weald special.  Join us and you will be supported by a strong and committed board and be part of a dynamic and vibrant staff team who work hard together to make a positive difference.
