Full Time
Organisation Type

Our legacy stretches back more than 100 years, so you may feel that you already know Joseph Rowntree. Over time, our reputation as an entity that seeks to understand social problems to inspire social change has become well established. But we are also a provider of housing and care, managing more than 2,500 homes and delivering a variety of care and support, across York and the North East.

About the role

This executive post is a unique leadership opportunity to take oversight of our housing, property, care and support services. You will be contributing to shaping our transformation programme, with a focus on our people, how we do things and what systems we have to support that work. You will have the freedom to consider process re-engineering with your teams; making certain that you are properly influenced by resident and commissioner views; and working collaboratively with executive colleagues to ensure a whole organisation and cohesive approach to change.

The Chief Executive and the Board are looking for a housing professional (and you may be able to offer senior care experience too) who brings integrity and credibility. You will be an ambassador for the Joseph Rowntree legacy, so you will appreciate the importance of this responsibility. Given the profile of the organisation, you will also be a role model for the delivery of high quality, responsive and accessible services, making good use of new technology, with the creation of a flexible, agile and forward thinking culture.

We feel this adds up to an exciting proposition. We impact people’s lives every single day. Find out how you could join us in that endeavour.
