The Chartered Institute of Housing is the independent voice for housing and the home of professional standards

Executive director of finance and resources


c. £80,000




The Chartered Institute of Housing is the professional body for housing. For more than a century we have devoted our work to one simple purpose: to ensure everyone has a decent, affordable home in a thriving, safe community.

This is a crucial time for CIH and the housing sector. We are going through a process of transformation and we are now looking for an experienced director to play a key role in driving us forward.

We are looking for someone who will become a recognised and visible leader, working with the executive team to build and sustain a proactive and customer-focused organisation.

You’ll need the skills, ability and experience to build and maintain credibility at board level.

You should be a highly experienced and financially qualified senior manager. You should also have a proven track record in delivering beyond a financial remit, particularly in the strategic management of IT, HR, estates management and project management.

You will be able to effectively communicate financial priorities across the organisation and build understanding and capacity of teams to plan effectively. You must be a strong, people-focused communicator and be confident in presenting financial information to a board of trustees and delivering financial strategies for future success.

We need you to be able to manage key contractual relationships and lead on our work with a range of stakeholders including auditors, contractors and supplies and affiliated companies.

For an informal conversation about this role contact chief executive Terrie Alafat or deputy chief executive Gavin Smart on 02476 851 723.

Closing date: 12pm on Monday 5 June and interviews will take place on June 22 and 23.
