Executive Officer - Compliance

Job Overview

Executive Officer - Compliance

What is the role?

To Join a well-established Housing Body in Ireland who has seen sustained growth over the past few years. Since its establishment in 1993 it has grown from a small voluntary organization into an established housing body. It provides housing management and tenant support systems to projects in twenty-six locations across eleven local authority jurisdictions. Despite the Pandemic this association is flourishing and onboarded several staff during the last year. So, the future is bright for this association and the organization is busier than ever.

For context- this is a new role where there will be tremendous opportunity for growth as in years to come the corporate services within this organization will grow. You will be part of a small team reporting into the CEO and working closely with the senior management team on the development of a compliance monitoring plan for the Association. Reporting directly to the CEO will enable you to quickly learn the business and operate more at a senior level than you normally could within a larger team.
