The Company

The mhs homes group is a provider of safe, secure, affordable housing across Kent for over 25 years. As a charitable housing association operating in north Kent, we own and manage 9,000 properties and employ more than 250 people. We’re unique in being the largest social landlord in the UK not registered with the social housing regulator.

We know that providing great places to a range of customers is extremely important. We also strive to achieve our core values of teamwork, agility, excellence, respect, community and enjoyment in everything that we do.

We use our strength to make a wider contribution to society. We act as a force for social good – to make a difference. We reinvest our profits, not only to deliver our main aims, but also to deliver a range of projects and services. These complement and add value to our wider community.

The Role

The incoming Assistant Director will be responsible for ensuring mhs homes has a robust approach to governance and compliance across our diverse range of activities. Critical to success, will be the ability to work in partnership across the business at all levels whilst also working closely with the Board, ensuring that they are supported to successfully and safely deliver the corporate plan.
