Job Details

Do you thrive in a fast-paced work environment? Do you enjoy working to tight deadlines? Do you like to make a difference? If this sounds like you, this could be your perfect role.

At Johnnie Johnson Housing, we’re looking for a Governance Co-ordinator to join us.

As our Governance Co-ordinator, your challenge will be to provide effective and outstanding services relating to general Governance activity for Johnnie Johnson Housing leaders, colleagues and other stakeholders. You’ll support our Head of Governance and Assurance in the delivery of the Governance, Risk and Assurance workstreams, working towards the overall corporate plan.

Maintaining accurate and effective records, you will deliver clear and concise management information across all Governance workstreams including performance data/dashboards, action trackers, value for money, business continuity and data protection. You’ll act as the Governance administration contract, managing day-to-day queries from colleagues across the business. Participating in Governance projects as and when required, you will contribute to the development of Governance processes, creating/reviewing processes to ensure they are seamless, fit for purpose and reduce duplication of re-work.

So now you’ve heard a bit about the role, let us tell you a bit about the team! It’s important to know who you might be working with, right?

Our Team

You will report into our Head of Governance and Assurance and sit within a close knit team of two. As well as providing support to the organisation, we support each other too. We work hard but we also like to have fun and you’ll often find us catching up outside of work.

About you

We really need someone who has experience of administration in a busy environment and who has good interpersonal skills, giving you the ability to build effective relationships at all levels. We’d like you to have excellent communication and organisational skills and put customers at the heart of everything you do.

You’ll enjoy working at pace and with colleagues across the business and have a genuine passion for continuous improvement, developing yourself and others. You’ll also be comfortable making decisions and love having accountability.

And the benefits of working for us?

We’ve adopted a completely hybridway of working, meaning you can work from home and/or our brand new (and very swanky!) Innovation Hub, Eden Point in Cheadle Hulme! As long as our residents and customers are put first we’ll also give you a degree of flexibility using our ‘My Lifestyle’ guidelines, meaning you can attend to the important things in life. So, whether you’ve got a yoga class you’d love to attend, your child’s school play or maybe it’s just that you’ve just got a new fridge being delivered, we will work with you to be flexible!

We also offer a fantastic holiday allowance of 33 days per annum (including statutory holidays) which rises to 38 days after 5 years’ service. We can offer you a 35-hour working week, an enhanced 5% employer contribution pension scheme and a recognition scheme with both financial and non-financial rewards such as gift vouchers, healthcare discounts, and loads more fantastic benefits too – you can find out more about these on our careers site!

We are a not-for-profit housing association, housing over 7,000 residents across the North West, North East, Yorkshire and Derbyshire and specialise in independent living for the over 55s. Our vision Living LongerLiving Better is simply about helping people age well and live independently for longer in their own homes.

Closing Date: 6th October 2021
