Sovereign Housing Association


Job Description

Sovereign is one of the largest housing associations in the country.  As well as building more than 1,500 homes a year, we take care of our 56,000 affordable homes, invest in creating strong and successful communities and provide services that make a difference to the lives of 130,000 people.  Following a merger in November 2016, we’ve been bringing our people, teams and processes together, while transforming and modernising how we do things. This means we can build more homes, do more for our residents and communities as well as give customers a great experience all day, every day. We’re on track and confident of success.

Housing is at the top of the political agenda and we’re committed to using our increased influence at local and national levels on issues that affect us, our communities and our residents – both current and future.   Our vision and purpose is very clear to us and we believe that a safe and affordable home is the foundation of everyone’s life. Without one, it’s difficult for anybody to realise their hopes and aspirations.

Following a recent board review we want to strengthen some key areas of expertise which will help us deliver our 2018-2023 strategy. We are looking for new Board Members who can bring a blend of professional and strategic skills that will ensure that we achieve our goal of creating vibrant communities which make a real difference to peoples’ lives.  We also want to continue to build the diversity of our Board and are particularly interested in attracting individuals with the following experience; finance and treasury, asset and property services, development as well as customer insight and digital transformation. 

In return, we offer the opportunity to join a highly committed Board and a passionate workforce that has a significant impact in the communities we serve as well as influencing at a national level.
