Salary: c£93,000 per annum plus benefits

Newlon Housing Trust is a successful charitable housing association and one of the major providers of new affordable housing in north and east London. Outward is the Newlon Group’s specialist support and care charity. Outward works with over 1,000 vulnerable adults who need assistance to live their lives and realise their potential.
We have an opportunity for an experienced and confident leader to join us in the role of Chief Executive for Outward and Group Director of Supported Housing and Care for Newlon.
As a member of the Executive Team and reporting to both the Outward and Newlon Boards, you will be responsible for the overall leadership and day-to-day management of the Outward service, ensuring that it meets its aims and overall objectives, both strategically and financially. You will also be responsible for the effective leadership and performance of Newlon’s supported housing and care and working with the Group in the development of those services.
We are seeking an energetic and resourceful leader to help shape the strategic direction of the organisation, both in response to COVID-19 (following which the gaps and strains in the social care systems have become more exposed than ever), as well as someone with a transformation mindset, who can take the organisation successfully into its next phase of growth. It is crucial that the new Chief Executive can help to craft and deliver an adaptable and sustainable vision for our future, embracing technological and fundraising innovations as part of this, while maintaining focus on the people we support. The ability to oversee day-to-day effective running and risk management of the organisation, coupled with the drive and vision to initiate and implement transformational change initiatives will be key.
With substantial experience of leading an organisation or a large department and being a member of, or working with, a charitable Board, you will have a background in the delivery of excellent care and support services. You will have managed CQC registered services.
A proven knowledge of the legal, regulatory and operating requirements of supported housing and care is essential, along with the ability to read, interpret and evaluate complicated legislation and contracts and a demonstrable commitment to supporting vulnerable residents. Outward has a track record of innovation, such as our Activity Centre at Nutley Edge, and we are looking for someone who combines proven innovation with a commercial attitude. First class communication skills and a strong team ethic are also essential as you will be working closely with the Outward Chair and Board members to develop the strategies and policies to deliver a great service.
In return, you can expect 29 days holiday, a non-contributory pension, excellent benefits. Our purpose-built offices form part of the award-winning Hale Village regeneration project, and are situated just two minutes’ walk from the major transport interchange at Tottenham Hale.
