Working at Director level within both public and private sector Housing for over 30 years, Moya has served on the Boards of various PLCs including Taylor Wimpey, McLean Homes, Southdale Group and worked for HBOS (The Halifax Group) and MJ Gleeson at a senior level. A key inspiration to Moya was Lord John Bird, founder of The Big Issue and also Bruce Kenrick, founder of the charity Shelter and it was this that led Moya to a career focus in Social Housing. Moya founded Embrace Management Services, to support Housing Associations with training, team development and specialist Development consultation, which introduced some of the commercial acumen from her PLC days, into the Development Assessment processes alongside Sales & Marketing methodologies for Shared Ownership schemes. Moya is a qualified facilitator of various team building tools such as Team Management Profile. Taking up the role as Development Director for Derwentside Homes in Durham, she supported Financial Inclusion projects such as Smarter Buys Stores and Prince Bishops Community Bank. A key element of her Development work in the Northeast, was to assist people out of the rental trap and into home ownership opportunities. Moya was able to secure funding from Homes England of over £67m to provide social housing in the Northeast. Returning back to her home county of Yorkshire, Moya worked as Development & Sales & Marketing Director for ENGIE/EQUANS, focusing on mixed tenure carbon zero and sustainable housing for people over 55. Taking early retirement in August 2022, Moya has worked on a voluntary basis to support homeless people with food deliveries on the street and also to assist those with disabilities access the benefits they are entitled to.
