MTVH is one of the UK’s largest landlords and developers of affordable housing.

We were built on a simple mission – to give people a safe, secure and affordable home, and the chance to live well.

That is as true today as it was in the 1950s, when founder Molly Huggins established Metropolitan to provide decent homes for Windrush migrants in London, and as it was in the 1980s as Thames Valley housing pioneered a new innovative Share Ownership product, to make home ownership more affordable.

Today, MTVH owns or manages more than 57,000 homes. It also provides a range of care and support services, with specialist areas including older people, mental health and transitional services which provides intensive support to marginalised or vulnerable people.

The pandemic has shown how crucial good homes and strong communities are, and this year MTVH has launched a new five-year strategy - Serving People Better Every Day - setting out the role the organisation will play in the economic and societal recovery.

MTVH is championing a better cared for, fairer, and more prosperous society. Like its founders before it, the team of today aims to leave a lasting legacy for future generations.

The role

What do our 2000 colleagues know about MTVH, our current priorities and the way our work has an everyday impact on people’s lives? How in touch are colleagues with our rich past and so have the context for their work today? How motivated do colleagues feel to deliver against our strategy and plan?

The role of Senior Corporate Affairs Manager, Colleague Communication, lies at the heart of organisational performance.

An exceptional individual is sought to lead a team to deliver a creative and dynamic colleague communication and engagement programme. This is a high profile and internally celebrated programme of activity, which has as its centrepiece a fortnightly BBC One-show style event on Zoom, Workplace and in person, with stimulating internal and external speakers, organisation updates, a star of the week awards, and even a music quiz.

From housing affordability to climate change to migrant destitution, MTVH works on a range of important and cutting-edge issues. This is an opportunity to work with our senior leaders to engage colleagues and build an understanding of, and commitment to, the organisation.

As a member of the Corporate Affairs Senior Leadership Team, the role holder will help determine the overall strategy and direction for the function, and create an environment which will support the team to thrive.

What you'll need to succeed

  • An inquiring mind, and willingness to form a thorough understanding MTVH, it’s data and examples;
  • Familiarity with the news agenda and what makes a good story;
  • Creative flair to engage hearts as well as minds;
  • A high level of organisation and efficiency;
  • Confident, visible and empowering leadership.
