BHT Sussex seeks a new Chief Executive

This is a very exciting opportunity to lead and grow one of Sussex’s leading charities and housing organisations. We are looking for someone to build on the platform being left by Andy, taking the organisation to new heights and to positively meet the challenges we will face over the next few years and beyond.

We are proud of our history and our long-standing social contribution. We provide advice, support and housing for some of the most vulnerable people in our communities across Sussex.

BHT Sussex is a people-oriented organisation. We are passionate about providing the highest quality, value for money services, and supporting the changing needs of our clients and tenants along their journey to wellbeing. We aim at being a great employer and a respected partner in our region.

Whoever we appoint will be responsible for a charity and registered housing provider with a turnover of £17.5m with more than 320 staff.

The person will provide the overall strategic direction and management of our advice, support and housing services, aligned to our Mission and Values. They will provide inspiration and leadership to a committed and friendly team to achieve key outcomes for our clients, tenants, partners and stakeholders. They will also be expected to promote BHT Sussex and enhance our reputation”
