Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in this exciting opportunity to work with Cobalt Housing as the Director of Operations.

Many organisations say it, but Cobalt is a truly unique place to work. Back in 2016, we consulted with tenants and 98% of 2,800 individuals voted in favour of a demerge from our (then) parent company, Symphony Housing Group and in October 2017 Cobalt completed the demerge process and we became a stand-alone housing association.

There is no other housing association with the commitment to community that we have – we exist to ensure people and their communities thrive. We provide quality places to live, and support to those who need it; we play our part in developing thriving communities where people are proud to live and can be their best.

Yes, we manage and maintain just under 6000 affordable homes in the Fazakerley, Croxteth and Norris Green areas of North Liverpool but there is so much more to us than just houses. We have departments dedicated to community regeneration and funding, and in the past year, we’ve given 100K in funding to groups, individuals and projects. We are playing an integral part in the regeneration of this area, and the future is incredibly promising. We are proud of what we have achieved and that we are held in high regard.

There are exciting times ahead for Cobalt. Just over one year on from demerger, we have the scale and capacity to make a significant and positive difference to our residents and neighbourhoods, combined with real local focus and accountability. We have recently launched a new Corporate Plan and our priorities will help us to achieve our vision for the future. We see the recruitment of this post as critical in helping us achieve these objectives.

We are looking for an Director who shares our commitment, values and ethos. We need somebody who can lead and inspire their teams, contribute strongly to our corporate development and forge effective relationships with our partners as we continue to grow.

This is a challenging and stimulating job in a dynamic organisation with great people and a great future. We see the recruitment of this post as critical in helping us achieve these objectives.

We hope you are inspired to join us, and I look forward to receiving your application.

Yours sincerely

Alan Rogers
Chief Executive
