The Future Housing Leaders project is a series of events designed to equip the next generation of housing professionals with the skills needed to help solve the UK’s housing crisis.
Jack, who works as a Compliance Officer, started at the Trust as a Customer & Support Services Modern Apprentice seven years ago. He has worked across various teams and departments giving him a strong understanding of social housing’s biggest challenges.
As part of is ambassador role, Jack helped to shape a two-day interactive event in London to debate key issues with other housing professionals.
Jack said: “I was very happy to have been chosen as an ambassador. It was a big surprise! Being able to meet others in the same industry at the same stage of their careers, as well as attend the conference and contribute to future events is a fantastic opportunity.”
Gareth Rigby, Director of Property at the Trust said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Jack and see him develop. This is a well-deserved opportunity he will certainly relish, and I can’t wait to hear some of the new ideas he can bring back to the Trust.
“Jack is adaptable and open to change and has a positive approach to all business-related tasks. He has always had a drive for continuous improvement both personally and professionally, and has a number of qualifications to show for it.
“We are committed to supporting our staff to grow and develop their future careers, and this is a great chance for Jack to do just that”.
After attending the event Jack will focus on championing new approaches to delivering homes and services with staff at Weaver Vale.
