Dear Applicant

Hello, thanks for visiting our microsite and showing an interest in our process to recruit an Executive Director of Operations for our organisation.

In 2015, we set out on to 2020 with our Corporate Plan to deliver our 5 year stock transfer promises.  Having successfully delivered the promises, we have recently  launched a new corporate plan – Our Future 2020-23. This will include a focus on customer connections, quality of service, safety of our homes, developing new homes as well as continuing to make Salix Homes a great place to work. We are looking for an executive leader who can help us maximise our potential and play a strategic role in achieving our ambitions.

Here at Salix we are well aware of the fast-paced environment in which we work. Rapid technological advances, the increasing role that devolution plays, Brexit, political uncertainty, welfare reforms, living with Covid-19 and an acute housing crisis are just some of the challenges we, along with many others, are facing. With these challenges, however, have come opportunities: our new online MySalix facility for example, offers a truly digital service for our customers; we are also developing a closer partnership with public and third sector bodies across the Social Care and Health communities; and we aim to provide a stronger than ever voice to help tackle the housing crisis through creative and pragmatic solutions as we rethink housing.

Above all else, Salix Homes is a people based organisation and we believe that our customers deserve to have their landlord support them to navigate this brave new world. We continually look to think differently about how we meet these challenges and we welcome contributions from all to help us on our journey.

Having worked in Salix Homes and Salford for the past 10 years I am incredibly proud of our achievements and the work we have undertaken to improve peoples lives and support them to access opportunities. We will work together with our partners to build on these solid foundations to Build Back Better as we emerge from these unprecedented times and challenges.

Our people make Salix Homes a great place to work and, as the newly appointed CEO, I am very excited about leading and driving this organisation to deliver an ambitious and challenging corporate plan. If you want to be part of the journey and can buy into our culture, I look forward to receiving an application from you.

Chief Executive
