Chair Recruitment


Dear Candidate

Thank you for your interest in this opportunity to join us as our new Chair. I hope that this website provides you with all the information you need at this stage, and that you will share our excitement about the role and the significant impact you can have at Magenta Living as we continue to grow and make a real difference to our customers.

We are the largest registered housing provider in Wirral, and a not-for-profit organisation owning and managing just under 13,000 properties. Employing around 600 staff, we are a significant local employer demonstrated by Investors in People Gold standard and retaining our Customer Service Excellence certificate.

We have a major role to play across our region, and as our new Chair you will be central to this. We have achieved a considerable amount in recent years, although there is still much more for us to do, not least of which is ensuring that we achieve a G1 governance rating from our regulator as soon as possible. Given the very significant challenges that we’ve all faced over the past 12 months, now more than ever we remain committed to delivering a great service and having a positive impact. 

Our culture at Magenta is collegiate and customer-centric. We are looking for a new Chair who strongly identifies with our purpose, ambitions and values, bringing the exceptional chairing skills required to lead our Board. We are looking for energy, ambition and extensive strategic leadership experience in complex, regulated organisations. You will be passionate about building strong and collaborative teams that have a long term impact.

You really can make a difference at Magenta. I hope you will apply, and I look forward to hearing from you. The Role Profile can be downloaded from the GatenbySanderson website or via the View Details button below.

Best wishes,

Brian Simpson, Chief Executive 

David Clark, Chair
