Job Details

Highstone Housing Association

Managing Director


Highstone Housing Association provides high quality housing that is specifically adapted to the needs of adults with disabilities, enabling them to live independently within their community. Founded in 2013 and based in Denby Dale, Huddersfield we currently provide around 300 homes. Our work makes an immense difference to the lives of our customers, offering them the tailored support and advice they need and the peace of mind that if something goes wrong in their home, we’re there to help them fix it.

Our new Managing Director will provide the organisational leadership and strategic direction that will enable us to build on our strengths, continuing to put customers at the centre of what we do, and work closely with colleagues to set a path for continued growth and success. You’ll play the central leadership role in setting, modelling and embedding our organisational values and ensuring that clearly defined business objectives map out a clear path for colleagues to work towards. You’ll ensure that the right structures and performance measurements enable all members of staff to have a clear understanding of their role and how they play a part in achieving our corporate objectives.

We expect that you will already have senior leadership experience including working at Board level within a social or supported housing setting and that you will be fully appraised of current legislation and policies. We’re a small team and we are looking for someone who is comfortable in a hands-on role and we would be particularly interested to hear from people with a background in Housing Management. Most importantly you’ll be able to demonstrate your passion and commitment for supporting people with disabilities and a readiness to put their needs at the centre of service design, and to measure success by the positive difference we can make to our customers’ quality of life.

To find out more and how to apply, please visit , or for a confidential discussion please call our retained consultant at ema, Ian Robertson on 07947 126329.

Closing date: 25 March 2024 (noon)


Ema consultancy is all about people – and the organisations they work in, and the organisations they lead.

We provide a range of services to ensure our clients attract, retain and develop talented people who match their values and culture.

We do this through a range of services, including pay and reward reviews, coaching recruitment for board and executive roles, learning and development support and structure recommendations following merger or other significant change.

You might need us as you are unsure of the best package to attract your next board chair, or perhaps as you are considering merger and need to understand what your ideal new employee structure should look like. You may be seeking support if a colleague has to take unexpected leave or a second expert opinion during difficult times such as disciplinary or employee relation issues. We can also offer quick turnaround upper and lower quartile benchmarking reports for individual posts.

Whatever you approach us for, you can be confident that we’ve been making a positive difference to our clients for more than 13 years. Contact us to see how we can make a difference to your organisation.
