My name is Esther Wilson and I am thrilled to be joining Viewpoint as the new Director of People and Place.
I am an experienced housing professional and have worked in a variety of housing services in councils in England and Scotland over the past 18 years. Throughout that time I have been involved in planning and delivering services for older people.
For the past 12 years I have worked at East Lothian Council, leading and managing teams responsible for setting housing strategy and policy and delivering investment in new housing, as well as delivering services directly to tenants and residents. My most recent responsibilities have involved leading a more diverse range of services across housing and economic development functions.
I am looking forward to using my skills and experience to make a positive and effective contribution to Viewpoint and its current and future customers. Through my work at East Lothian I have met several members of the Viewpoint staff team and have always been impressed by their positive and innovative approach – they do a great job in reflecting Viewpoint’s values on a day to day basis and that attracted me to want to work for the organisation. I am very much looking forward to meeting you and listening to what is important to you, ensuring that Viewpoint continues to deliver Joy in Later Years.
