Many Housing Associations were originally founded to support those unable to access the open market for residential accommodation. Today the profile of those requiring support has grown rapidly in both scale and diversity. This puts significant pressure on these businesses to both understand and meet their customer demand within an evolving regulatory framework.
At Berwick Partners, we see it as our duty to educate ourselves on the sector’s current and future risks to ensure we have capacity to meet these challenges head on. Increasingly, a diverse pipeline of accessible talent is one of these challenges. We know business excellence, innovative process and entrepreneurial flair lies dormant in other industries, ready to add value if effectively engaged.
We are constantly curating a narrative that gives our clients an unparalleled reach into multiple industries. We don’t just think Housing. We think the consultancy sector, the automobile industry, the retail sector and the B2B market. We think construction giants, boutique developers, fund managers and charities.
Once we have engaged with these professionals, we work hard to on board them and retain them through honest and effective feedback. We think how they can add value and how a career in Housing is valuable to them.
We make sure that the team you meet reflects the expertise you need. Our functional experts across Finance, Property, HR & IT are experts work with our Housing specialist where appropriate to ensure you receive the most valuable support possible.
Through our reach as part of Odgers Berndtson Group, the UK’s largest search firm, we are able to provide our clients with access and insight to unparalleled thought leadership and networking opportunities as well as sector wide trends and analysis.
It’s great being at the forefront of the sector, but with pressures to increase efficiencies there is a lot to be said for getting the basics right too.
