Published: 8 May 2019
Joe Hughes, neighbourhood management officer at South Liverpool Homes (SLH), has been recognised as a future leader in housing after making the top 20 shortlist in 24Housing’s Young Leaders 2019 award.
The Young Leader award creates a platform for candidates to demonstrate their potential to become a strong leader in the housing sector as well as expressing their ideas that could change the way the sector operates.
Julie Marsh, Director of Neighbourhood Management said, “I am immensely proud of Joe. Young Leaders shines a light on the most promising individuals set to be future leaders in housing and Joe’s professionalism, passion and assertiveness are just some of the qualities that make him a born leader.”
“Joe began his career at SLH as a lettings executive but it was when he became a neighbourhood management officer in 2016 that his leadership potential began to emerge,” continued Julie. “He’s mentored SLH’s housing graduates, coaching them to deal with the day-to-day challenges of neighbourhood management and he continues to learn and grow through development training programmes.”
“The Young Leaders competition shows the incredible amount of young talent there is in the sector, ready and eager to impress,” says 24housing editor Mark Lawrence. “Many of these are looking at becoming future chief executives in the sector. Reading their submissions, I think we are in pretty good hands. But the decision for who makes it further in the competition is up to you. Read the online submissions and get voting. Good luck to all nominees!”
