Welcome to The Housing Executive

At The Housing Executive we have focused on management and consultancy roles within the housing sector since 2002. We believe, with a passion, that a personal approach and in-depth registration process, spending at least an hour interviewing our candidates, really helps to match the right person to the job.

We enjoy recruitment challenges and believe in open, robust and honest collaboration with our candidates and clients. Now, more than ever, employers need the skills and experience at a senior level to drive their organisations forward and lead staff through times of change.

We adapted our business model during covid and now have a hybrid approach, with consultants based both in London, Kent, Hampshire and Wales. We work both online and face to face depending on the needs of our clients.

Should you have any problems at all reaching our office number, or have email issues, feel free to call any of our directors on the following numbers:
Tony Clark: 07971 960329
Carol Drummond: 07900 823181
Julie Kellaway: 07811 189375

While the environment around us is uncertain, we take comfort in the fact that we are a passionate and committed team and have fantastic candidates and clients who are making a difference to the communities they serve. 

Small enough to listen – Big enough to deliver!

Have you been able to work with the same recruiter for the last 20 years? At The Housing Executive our directors are “hands on” consultants – it’s our company and we have a passion to provide the service you deserve, through people you trust. Consistency is good business!

Who We Are:

The Housing Executive is an entirely independent organisation. It was formed by Tony Clark and Carol Drummond in 2002. We have a background in housing recruitment at director level and have worked with the sector for over 20 years. Our expansion has been gradual, ensuring we maintain standards and priding ourselves on generating repeat business through good service. Clients and candidates often recommend us to others as we build relations for the long term. We are based in central London.

What We Do:

We offer a high quality, personal service delivered by the directors, giving you consistency of recruitment contacts and twenty years of housing sector experience to understand your specific vacancies. We meet the need for a recruitment consultancy dedicated to managers and executives and recruit on an interim, permanent and consultancy basis: recruiting managers, directors and consultants within the housing sector (including property, investment and development).

How We Can Help:

We act as ambassadors for organisations, adding value and providing a high level of customer service to candidates responding to your vacancy. We believe in broadening the level of interest in a role, reaching beyond selection based on advertising alone, utilising our established network throughout the sector and contacts on social media. We take a very flexible approach, offering a range of services including; temporary and permanent recruitment, temp-to-perm, interim and consultancy.

Something Different:

Try us.…we love a challenge. We’ve worked with a varied range of clients in our time, including: the UN, the Audit Commission, many local authorities, G15 Registered Providers, national housing groups, the smallest housing associations and a global property company.
