Lincolnshire Housing Partnership is a new organisation, which will be formed as a result of the merger of Boston Mayflower and Shoreline Housing Partnership in April 2018.

With around 12,700 homes, over 26,000 customers and 350 employees, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership will have a combined turnover of £52m per annum and will create a substantial regional housing organisation, strongly connected with its communities and key stakeholders and with greater capacity and financial strength. Operating in four principal areas - Boston, Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham - we are committed to listening to tenants and customers in our local communities, ensuring that they are at the heart of the business. We are also determined to deliver accessible, easy to use, right first time, locally based services as well as added value services such as affordable warmth, training schemes and employment initiatives

As a member of the LHP Executive Leadership Team (ELT), the Director of Resources will play a pivotal role in establishing its identity and future plans as it builds on the success of its two constituent housing associations. The postholder will lead a team of around 30 people responsible for the following functions: Finance, IT, Information, risk and assurance.

We are looking for fully qualified finance professionals with housing sector experience who are inspirational leaders and able to clearly articulate vision and strategic direction. As well as strong business acumen, technical skills and a corporate and service orientated approach, the successful candidate will embody the values and ambitions of LHP and motivate the team accordingly.

Your actions will result in impressive operational and financial performance; continued strength and improvement in long term financial viability; well-trained and motivated colleagues; and the best use of the association’s resources with a keen eye on value for money. Naturally, you will also be an excellent ambassador and advocate for LHP, forging and sustaining strong relationships with board members, lenders, regulators, and other key stakeholders.
