Job Reference JATAOA
Closing Date Thursday 27 Jan 2022

At Hexagon, our mission is to meet the housing needs of South London through our commitment to existing and future residents, local communities and the environment.

We own over 4,000 homes across five London Boroughs and provide for a range of different needs.

Hexagon is looking for an ambitious new CEO to work with our Board and team to define our identity, ambition, risk appetite and brand for the future.

Our new CEO will enjoy leading a relatively small organisation with some transformational challenges and opportunities, and they will play a key role in building our profile amongst partners and stakeholders in South East London and beyond.

This role represents an exciting opportunity to shape and implement Hexagon’s new strategy and steer us through our next phase. Our new CEO will be a leader who is experienced in developing the talents of colleagues, who can further remodel our systems and processes, maintain and build our reputation, and foster a culture focused on service quality and authentic engagement with residents and partners. Importantly, the right person will bring an empathy with Hexagon’s vision and mission and will personally ensure that a commitment to putting customers/consumers at the heart of our work is embedded at every level of the organisation and in our strategic priorities.

We are taking a cross-sector approach to finding our new CEO. Knowledge of the social housing sector and the regulatory framework in which it operates is desirable, not essential.

Please note we are taking a new approach to this process, which is designed to help eliminate bias, with the ultimate aim of increasing the diversity and quality of the candidate pool. We are asking candidates on this occasion to respond to two work-place scenario questions, and not include any other information at this stage. CVs will only be used in the first instance for due diligence on qualifications and employment history.

Please respond to the 2 scenarios outlined in the appointment brief and submit along with your CV only.
