Welcome from Dr Neil Goodwin CBE, Chair

Thank you for your interest in this opportunity to join the Board of Onward.

I hope that this website provides you with the information you need as you explore the opportunity and Onward in more detail. I also hope that, as you find out more about our many achievements and ambitions, you’ll begin to share our excitement as we continue to grow and make a real difference to our customers and communities.

We are committed to building more new homes throughout the North West for those in housing need, and this role will play a key part in providing strategic support to help enable our team to achieve this critical ambition. We believe that everyone deserves a place to call their own, and Onward has an important role to play in creating strong and vibrant communities that our customers can be proud to be a part of.

We own and manage over 35,000 homes across the North West, and we are committed to building at least a further 1,600 affordable homes by 2023. Our new Non-Executive Director will play a key role by bringing strategic insight into large scale property development  to help us grow and make the most of our considerable potential. Although recent global events have created uncertainty, the one thing that all of us at Onward are certain of is that organisations such as ours have an increasingly important role to play in our customers’ lives.

Although we have delivered significant change over the past four years in particular, there is still much more to do, particularly as we grasp the full impact of Covid-19. As a member of a dedicated and ambitious Board, your potential for impact is significant - you really can make a difference.

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

Best wishes,

Dr Neil Goodwin CBE
