Dear Applicant

Thank you for your interest in this critical and exciting appointment for Ascham Homes, the Arm’s Length Management Company for the London Borough of Waltham Forest.

The next few years will be challenging for all housing organisations and Ascham Homes is no different. If there is an exciting time to join us it must be now. With our new Chief Executive now in post, we are about to embark on a major transformation in how we operate and how we deliver our services for our tenants and the wider community of Waltham Forest.  

Joining as our Director of Finance, you will play a full and corporate role as part of our Executive Management Team. We need an excellent leader who will bring a comprehensive understanding of social housing underpinned by strong financial and business management experience. You will need the credibility to work effectively with our partners, the confidence and judgment to effectively manage risk and the ability to develop the team.

You will be passionate in your ambitions for the organisation and the difference it can make to our customers.

This will be a hugely challenging but ultimatley rewarding role with the scope to contribute to shaping our future, developing new services and making us the housing provider of choice for our tenants and Council.

Do this and you will help us make a real step change in the lives of our tenants and their families who live in our 12,000 homes. You will also get the commitment and determination of our key stakeholder to make a lasting impact on our Borough, including the active participation in its wider regeneration and development.

If you are looking for an opportunity to contribute to an ambitious organisation and feel you could help us deliver customer services to our tenants, whilst putting housing at the heart of Waltham Forest then we want to hear from you.


We look forward to your interest and application.


Yours sincerely



Madeliene Forster
