Dear Candidate

We are very pleased that you are interested in applying for the role of Director of Business Services with the NLA.  We are the UK’s largest association for private-residential landlords. We work with all kinds of landlords, from those who are fulltime with large property portfolios to those with just a single letting.

This is an exciting time for the NLA. In Spring 2017 we agreed an ambitious 3 Year Corporate Strategy to enable us to become the undisputed brand leader membership organisation for private-residential landlords. This means achieving a significant increase in our membership, and developing into a truly member-centric organisation through an enhanced offer to our existing members.

To support this strategy we are looking to recruit a new Director of Business Services to join a small, newly established Senior Management Team. Reporting to me as Chief Executive, the successful candidate will play a vital role in leading the NLA’s work in establishing the finance and business processes in digital, IT and people infrastructure, all to build a platform of growth for the organisation.

The person we are looking for will need to have a strong finance background; great people management skills, an established leadership track record, and a background in IT, HR and governance to review and refresh all these specific functions.

It’s vital that this person has extensive knowledge of the business support environment and understands the functions needed to provide this type of comprehensive support. We would also like it if this person was used to working in a customer service organisation, to bring this experience to the role as well.

If this is a challenge that appeals to you and you believe you have the required skills and knowledge and you could commit to our brand values – Authority, Helpful, Value and Dynamic – we would very much like to hear from you. 

For a confidential conversation with our recruitment partner, please contact Sarah Thewlis, Managing Director of Thewlis Graham Associates on 0207 850 4781 or email applications@thewlisgraham.com.  Sarah will be happy to discuss this opportunity with you and answer any questions you may have.

Yours sincerely
