Kelvin said: “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.”

In 2021/22 the organisation stopped 1,777 households from becoming homeless, 688 through advice services in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings.

BHT Sussex said the ideal candidate would be from ‘an organisation of comparable complexity and scale’ with experience of working in social housing, charities, the public sector or in mental health services.
