Chief Executive recruitment

Thirteen is currently working on the recruitment process for a new Chief Executive.

Our new Chief Executive will be a confident, visionary, energetic, values led leader, responsible for leading Thirteen Group through the next stage of its development, focussing on the ambitions set out in our 2022 to 2027 Strategic Plan. Our plan encompasses four key priorities: great customer experience providing quality places to live and improving neighbourhoods, being ‘Team Thirteen’ and our commitment to net zero and reducing environmental impacts.

As part of our commitment to living well, our teams will be expected to react to the economic and social events being faced by our residents: we anticipate that these will push many into real hardship, requiring us to ensure our services and support are of the highest standard and have a really positive impact on our customers’ lives.

We are looking for an ambitious individual with a formidable track record in leadership that combines strong strategic vision with the ability to effectively lead and support a dynamic organisation and its employees.

The successful candidate will have a real desire to make a difference in the North East. They will be a critical thinker with experience of working in a complex environment with substantial budgets and wide-ranging responsibilities. They will bring a strong and genuine personal commitment to the cause of social housing, care and support, and to the organisation’s vision, values and goals.

At Thirteen, we believe that every relationship matters, choices can make a difference, and we can change things for the better. We know that our colleagues are key to us being able to do this and without them, we wouldn’t be able to meet our aspirations or our customers’ needs, which is why we want to attract a Chief Executive who will help others thrive and share Thirteen’s ambition, energy and passion to make a difference. The successful candidate will be a visible leader who enthuses others with their ideas, energy and commitment.

Thirteen Group is more than just a landlord. We work to improve the fabric of the communities we serve, providing our customers with homes, support and opportunities to grow.

We want to help our customers live independently and be the best they can be, creating resilient communities across the North East, Yorkshire and Humber. We own and manage manage over 35,000 properties, with 1,600 colleagues providing services for more than 72,000 customers.
