Welcome from Bronwen Rapley, Chief Executive

Thank you for your interest in this role.

I hope that you will find the information you need and share our excitement as we continue to grow and make a real difference to our customers and communities. 

I joined as Chief Executive just over three years ago and I am privileged to lead this dedicated and passionate team. We own and manage over 35,000 homes across the North West and we are committed to building at least a further 1,600 by 2023.  We are committed to delivering a great service to our customers, to having a real impact in our neighbourhoods and to growth. 

We have delivered significant change in the last three years and we are looking to appoint an Executive Director of Finance to move us to the next stage.  We are seeking a team-focused professional who can undertake a broad and influential role across Onward, providing us with expert financial leadership along with so much more. Whether you’re looking to step up into an Executive Director role, or seeking a new professional challenge, the scope of the role and its potential for impact are significant.

This is the type of role where we encourage you to be proactive, anticipating issues and challenges and delivering results by contributing to areas above and beyond the traditional finance remit.  We really don’t mind which sector you currently work in as the most important consideration is that you have the right motivation to join us.

Success for Onward comes from truly collaborative working and you’ll understand that people are the key to our success. Inspiring and motivating colleagues to perform at their very best, this is an important role where you really can make a difference.

I hope you will apply, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Bronwen Rapley
Chief Executive
