Our head of partnerships and strategy is shortlisted for a Women in Housing award!

Congratulations to Natalie Treadwell, our head of partnerships and strategy who is a finalist for a Women in Housing Award.

Natalie has been shortlisted for the Woman of the Future – Housing Association award.

The Women in Housing awards champion the successes of women in the housing sector.

Our executive director of development Nick Byrne said: “Natalie has been nominated for this award not only for the work she does but how she does it.  I am so proud of everything Natalie has done for Citizen, particularly for her work building genuine relationships through a very empathetic style with her colleagues, always placing herself in the other person’s shoes when consulting and arriving at solutions.

“Natalie has written a fantastic strategy for us which is unique in that it’s not a boring stand-alone development strategy but a document that supports what Citizen is trying to achieve as an organisation around improving customer satisfaction, linking into our change initiatives like ‘Putting Our Citizens First’ which is our organisation-wide programme that seeks to embed a customer-centric focus into our culture.”

In recognition of the role Natalie continues to play in the directorate and the wider organisation, her role has recently been enhanced. Her new role as head of partnerships and strategy means all her skills relating to fostering internal relationships will be put to use for external partnerships too.

Nick added: “I am confident that the enhancements to Natalie’s job will be only the latest step in her leadership journey and that she will go from strength to strength and become one of affordable housing development’s great leaders and for all the reasons above should win the Woman of the Future award.”

Natalie added she is proud to be a finalist at the awards.

She said: “When I found out I was shortlisted, I didn’t know what to say!

“It was an honour to be nominated for the award but to be in the shortlist is overwhelming to be honest.

“I had to check the email over and over to make sure they hadn’t made a mistake!

“I think it’s a great demonstration of the way we are heading as a company and I’m proud to be a finalist for these awards.”

The awards take place on Monday 24 June at Manchester Central. We wish Natalie the best of luck!
