Building for a nation
Saxton Bampfylde has worked with housing providers in the UK for many years, supporting and identifying senior leaders in executive and non-executive positions to help drive the sector forward.
We recognise that in an ever more complex political, economic and social climate, we can expect a stronger emphasis on governance and leadership, and rightly so. With the capacity and ambition of many social housing associations growing and their role in communities expanding, the challenges and opportunities in front of housing association boards are increasingly complex, substantial and high profile.
Our Social Housing practice is committed to finding and supporting excellent and authentic leaders across the sector to deliver tangibly positive benefits for existing, emerging and new communities across the UK.
Specialist leadership advisors to:
- G15 Housing
- Housing Associations
- Resident Management Organisations
- Housing Providers
- Housing Regulation
- Property Development
- Social Care Charities
- Plus many more
Working across the commercial, public and not-for-profit sectors for over 35 years, our networks are unusually broad and deep. Through our work advising Social Housing, we find and develop strategic and commercial leaders at non-executive and executive level, who will be authentic champions of your social purpose.
Bringing forward passionate and diverse Board Leaders
Senior board appointments require a highly targeted, personalised search to identify appropriately qualified senior leaders, and it is essential that each of them is then approached by an articulate and well-informed advisor. Through our dedicated board practice, we appoint over 250 chair and non-executive roles every year: our networks give us extensive reach across sectors, and deep insights into the challenges – and opportunities – faced by boards today.
Developing high-performing boards
Saxton Bampfylde has the expertise and experience to provide chairs with the comprehensive insight they need to run an effective board, having led governance reviews at both executive and non-executive level. Our review process is designed to be relatively light-touch, allowing boards to comply fully with governance recommended practice and providing data and practical recommendations that can be used to improve board/team effectiveness, maximise strengths, and tackle weaknesses. Our view is structured around a tried and tested model, but can be adapted to specific organisational needs.
