Network Homes, a member of the G15, have been providing affordable homes for over 40 years and manage over 20,000 homes. We have become a trusted partner to the Finance function in particular having worked extensively with them since 2017.
Allen Lane were recommended to the Finance Director in 2017 as a recruitment partner to consider as Network’s tried and trusted routes to market were not providing the expected results. A fresh approach was required to help the Business Partnering team modernise and influence.
We challenged NH to look beyond the “sector background”, and to think about the attributes and characteristics sought in the right person. After all, learning the intricacies of a sector is easier than revolutionising interpersonal skills.
Our success in business partnering recruitment (in competition) led to NH retaining us for the recruitment of a Group Management Accountant. The successful candidate had influenced Housing from within Local Government and Estates Businesses.
