About Prima Group

The Prima Group currently own and manage over 2700 properties in the Liverpool, Sefton and Wirral areas, plus a small number in Llandudno. As a housing association we provide homes for families, single people, over 55’s, students, key workers and shared ownership homes.

Ensuring our customers have a good place to live that is safe, warm and secure is important to us, but we aim to do more than that. We care about our customers, working to create vibrant neighbourhoods, guided by our simple vision to put our customers and communities first.

Formed in 2017 through an amalgamation of Pierhead Housing Association and Leaseowe Community Homes, the Group also now includes a commercial subsidiary which owns and manages over 250 commercial properties, that generate income to support the Group’s social and charitable aims.

About the role 

We are currently looking for suitably qualified and experienced Board Members to join our Group Board.  This will be a newly formed common board with specific oversight over the activities of both of the Registered Providers within the Group, in addition to overall responsibility for setting the Group’s strategic direction.

As this is a new board, we are seeking to appoint 3-5 new members and are particularly keen to receive applications from qualified finance professionals and those with experience in asset management, housing development and customer insight. Experience of the housing sector is not essential and we are keen to ensure that we have a diverse board with a breadth of experience, shared values and a commitment to the purpose of the Group.
