Wirral Methodist
Housing Association


“Thank you for expressing an interest in the Director of Finance and Resources role at Wirral Methodist Housing Association.

We are a community based Housing Association based in Birkenhead, and for nearly 60 years we have been providing homes to those who need somewhere to live. Proud of our heritage we want to help those in greatest need and we work in areas where new homes make a big difference to people’s lives and local communities.

We know that providing a home at the right time can make a life changing difference, and we are proud to keep trying to build more new homes to help more local people.

A strong, strategic financial leader will help us to be a more resilient and effective organisation as well as to help us plan for the future.

We have a small dedicated team of colleagues and they care for and manage our 900 homes, providing general needs, supported and older person’s accommodation across Wirral and West Cheshire.

Our skilled Board of Directors give clear direction and provide a focused and supportive partnership with the staff team.

We would be really interested to hear from you if you think you have the right blend of strategic thinking, finance and resource management experience and the desire to work with a small organisation that makes a big difference.”

Paul Carhart – CEO

About Us

Wirral Methodist Housing Association has been providing quality housing in Wirral and Ellesmere Port since 1964.

We provide family houses, flats, supported accommodation including sheltered housing and shared ownership schemes.

We strive to be a caring organisation and are committed to providing quality homes and a responsive service.

Wirral Methodist Housing Association was founded in 1964 by a group of local Methodists who were moved to address the housing problems in their home community of Wirral.

The organisation grew organically and slowly throughout the next 15 years until increasing funding of social housing by Government enabled it to expand to its current size of over 850 properties in management.

We are a charity which does not distribute the profits we make to shareholders, but instead invest them in the work we do to help people in need. We have a remunerated Board who give their time to ensure we maintain our ethos, our vision and our values.

We believe in treating everyone who we come into contact with as a valued individual with whom we seek to develop a mutually beneficial relationship.
