Salary: c£70k plus matched 10% pension contribution and PMI
Join an ambitious executive team and go home each day knowing you have supported vulnerable and disabled people to live independently in their own homes.
Reside is a leading registered provider of accommodation for those with support needs, operating throughout the UK. As a charitable society Reside’s motivation has always been to assist and promote independence in the community for adults with a disability, especially those with learning disabilities, enduring mental health problems and/or acquired brain injury.
Reside provides everyday homes within the community, regardless of the support a group or individual may require, with an emphasis on creating safe and homely environments. Reside has experienced growth over the past couple of years and currently proudly operates approximately 350 properties located throughout the UK, housing over 1200 tenants. We offer a range of accommodation – the vast majority of the properties are acquired on a leasehold basis, but there is a small, and growing, portfolio of properties that have been purchased. Our repairing and maintenance responsibilities are varied according to the specific partnership arrangements with Local Authorities and Support Providers.
We are seeking to add someone to the executive team who can bring a dynamic, thoughtful and experienced approach to housing operations and housing management in the widest sense of the definition; including running the asset management and repairs functions. Someone who is tenant focused and committed to the provision of good quality housing for those with support needs. Many of the solutions we provide for individuals are bespoke and therefore you must be able to operate well in the space where best practice from large solutions is tailored to fit the needs of individuals. Our ideal candidate will be able to bring experience from the (supported) housing sector, professional competencies (e.g. in maintenance surveying) and a clear values base. In a small organisation you will have both a broad strategic portfolio and an ability to be hands on when needed.

Non- Executive Board Members (Nationwide)
As a Board Member for Reside Housing Association, you will make a significant contribution to this highly successful charitable registered society and national provider of supported living accommodation. During its 16-year history, Reside has been assisting and promoting empowerment and independence in the community for a wealth of people with disabilities, particularly those with a learning disability, enduring mental health problems and/or acquired brain injury. Reside provides everyday homes within the community, regardless of the support a group or individual may require, with an emphasis on creating safe and homely environments. Reside is growing at an impressive trajectory and is embarking on a vital new chapter. In response, the Board is looking to appoint two new members who can continue the growth and success of the organisation.
The new Board Members will support Reside to help meet the challenges ahead and achieve its vision and strategic plan for 2022. With a clear empathy for the values and mission of the organisation, you will challenge and support your Board Member colleagues and work with the executive team to ensure that when a decision is reached it is the right one for both Reside and its tenants. That means knowing and positively promoting Reside’s work and values, as well as working to the highest levels of probity, integrity and governance. You will share your vast knowledge of business practice, governance and wider strategy to provide real insight and make sound commercial and ethical decisions.
As an inspirational, progressive leader, you will be a strategic thinker and have the planning expertise, together with a proven record of insight, judgement and decision making, ideally at Board level, to turn vision into reality. With your highly effective collaborative team working style and excellent communication and influencing skills, you will have an enviable track record of commercial and/or public sector experience ideally, though not essentially, gained in social care, with an understanding of the needs of the Reside tenant base, commercial residential property estate management, including leasing contracts and negotiations, or housing association finance, preferably with an accountancy or auditing qualification. HR, commissioning or information technology are also of relevance.
Commitment will be a minimum of 10 days per year and will deliver a clear opportunity to provide vital support in a growing and forward thinking organisation that makes an impact on people’s lives.
