Lincolnshire Housing Partnership is a new organisation, which was formed as a result of the merger of Boston Mayflower and Shoreline Housing Partnership in April 2018. We have made good progress in delivering our integration plan and we are about to launch our new 2019-2023 Corporate Strategy.

We are very excited about our future. With around 12,650 homes, over 26,000 customers and 350 employees, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership has a combined turnover of £52.9m per annum and is a substantial regional housing organisation, strongly connected with its communities and key stakeholders. We are a partner of choice and an influencer of policy within Lincolnshire as well as an employer of choice and contributor to the health of the regional economy.

Currently operating across three principal areas - Boston, East Lindsey and North East Lincolnshire - we are committed to listening to tenants and customers in our local communities and 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. We are strongly committed to our workforce, supporting and encouraging them to develop and learn and working with our partners such as local and county councils and the LEPs.

We are now looking for a new Chair to lead us through the next stage of our journey to deliver on our vision of “Great Homes, Strong Communities”. The right candidate will have excellent leadership skills and substantial non-executive experience, with an in-depth understanding of good governance. Knowledge and experience of working in a complex and highly regulated sector is essential as is experience of working effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, including customers, partners, regulators and commissioners. Social housing knowledge is desirable but not essential and local or regional knowledge would be an advantage but is not essential.
