Background and experience

Esme brings to Key’s board several years of performance management experience within social housing. She is currently managing a pioneering three-year project to provide safe, secure homes for more than 400 people who are homeless or at risk of being homeless across Greater Manchester.

Before joining GMCA, Esme was an improvement manager for a housing provider in Salford, having held a range of other roles within the social housing sector.

As the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) project manager, her extensive network and contacts across ten local authorities ensure Key is plugged into best practices and can learn from her partnership approach.

Having recently graduated with a distinction and honours in her Master of Arts in Social Policy, Esme also supports the board with a practical and theoretical understanding of social policy analysis and research.

Her research background ensures Key is in a strong position to meet its obligations to report on performance, build confidence in its work and show how it meets the needs of clients, staff and stakeholders through appropriate reporting and measurement.
