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 chief executive
- 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.
