Network Homes

Finance Director

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.

Brief/Problem:

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.

Approach/research:

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.

Results/achievement:

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.
