Since we opened our office doors 12 years ago, we’ve helped some 100 people into their first Chief Executive role. With candidates from outside the sector now competing for top roles, we’re looking at the skills needed to sit at the helm of a housing provider.

What training and experience should current exec team members be hunting for in the year before they make their first Chief Executive application?

And what lessons do current Chief Executives have for those waiting in the wings?

If you’d like to take part in our survey and Mind the Gap report, please email anne.elliott@emaconsult.co.uk and we’ll be in touch. Thanks to everyone who has enthusiastically taken part already, there’s some great insight already and we look forward to sharing it in the new year.
