CEO of Parity Trust takes part in Leadership Council podcast (January 2020)

The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is talking to leadership figures from across the nation in an attempt to understand this universal trait and what it means today. 

Our CEO SJ Hunt was invited onto an episode of the podcast which also included an interview with Sir Geoff Hurst. Host Matthew O’Neill asked both guests a series of questions about leadership and the role it has played in their careers to date.

Lord Blunkett, chairman of The Leaders Council of Great Britain and Northern Ireland said, ‘I think the most informative element of each episode is the first part, where Matthew O’Neill is able to sit down with someone who really gets how their industry work and knows how to make their organisation tick. Someone who’s there day in day out working hard and inspiring others. That’s what leadership is all about.’

Shared Ownership Mortgage completed

We have completed our first Shared Ownership mortgage on a housing association property in London. After the buyers moved in to the property they contacted us to say they are settling in well and we are extremely pleased to have been able to assist. 

“Parity have been excellent throughout. Thorough, knowledgeable, honest and approachable. Thank you!”

Parity Trust provided a number of mortgages as part of a Community Land Trust project in Bournemouth a number of years ago and are pleased to have been able to help on this occasion – we hope this is one of a number of Shared Ownership mortgages that we can provide in the coming years.
