Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) has appointed Janet Mussington as our Interim Director of Development.
Janet has been working with ISHA as a Development Consultant for the past 12 months, and steps into the new role as part of our Leadership Team to provide continuity following the departure of outgoing Director, Olukunle Olujide.
Janet brings a wealth of experience, having worked in the housing sector most of her career, with a core focus on customer-focused development and regeneration. As well as working for multiple small housing associations throughout her career, Janet was previously the Head of Development for London at Sanctuary Group.
Ruth Davison, Chief Executive of Islington & Shoreditch Housing Association, said:
"We’ve had a challenging time in recent years as we’ve responded to the building safety crisis and focused our resources accordingly. But our development programme still provides a vitally important contribution to affordable housing in our communities, and I’m delighted that Janet is on board to progress both our ISHA projects and our work with the North River Alliance (NRA)."
"Despite recent constraints, our talented Development Team continues to be passionate about delivering affordable housing in our local communities. We’re forging ahead with some key projects of our own, as well as expanding our development agency services to support other housing associations who may not have the capacity in-house. And coming from my background of working with smaller housing associations, I’m thrilled to continue the work we do with the NRA. I wholeheartedly believe that by working together, we can maximise our resources and strengthen our capability."
We are a community and neighbourhood-based housing association managing and developing quality affordable housing for people in North and East London, and building more homes in Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest.
The North River Alliance is a successful development partnership of locally based housing associations in North and East London. Our development teams work together to provide high quality, sustainable homes, which meet the needs of our local communities for affordable homes.
