Finance Director of the Year

There are two awards for this category:

  • Small - medium organisation (up to 10,000 homes owned and managed)
  • Large organisation (over 10,000 homes owned and managed)

This award will honour a truly exceptional finance director. The contribution of an individual heading a high performing team can make a critical difference between good and outstanding service.

Judges will be looking for:

  • a contribution above and beyond that of colleagues or peers in other housing associations
  • a great communicator, winning the trust of colleagues across the organisation and a partner to the CEO
  • an affinity with numbers and the ability to interpret them
  • sound financial risk management and risk planning, with a focus more on planning ahead than looking back
  • a flair for creativity and strategic vision
  • an impact in the organisation that can be clearly related to the finance director
  • evidence of attempts to share the finance director’s skills and knowledge with other members of the team
