Young Leaders 2019 is now open for entries

Following the continued success of last year, 24housing’s Young Leaders competition is back to find 2019’s brightest young talent.


The hunt for the ninth Young Leader is on, with nominations now open to find the sectors stand-out talent.

Year-on-year, the competition has only got stronger, with the calibre of those entering increasing and the standard of their work improving. Last year was no different, and we saw nominations come in from all corners of the housing sector.

We are seeing a rise in responsibility and trust of those under 30 working in the sector, which shows great promise for the future.

The final deadline for nominations is 5th April 2019.

The names will then be shortlisted in-house by the editorial team, with the Top 20 going to an online vote.

The Top 10 will then pitch their ideas to a panel of housing professionals.

The five finalists will present at the National Housing Federation’s Annual Conference in September.

Previous winners have gone on to be a key part of the sector, attending various conferences around the country and acting as an ambassador for their organisation.

The search is on. Are you working with somebody who you think has the potential to be the next future leader?

Is there somebody in your organisation who constantly goes that extra mile to make a difference?

Is there that one person who stands out?
