Board Member – Octavia Housing
Octavia Housing have been managing homes for 150 years, which makes us one of the oldest housing associations in England. We were founded by Octavia Hill, the Victorian philanthropist and social reformer, whose ideas form the basis of the profession of housing management.
About the role
We currently manage around 5,000 properties, including some of the first homes that Octavia Hill acquired, and our long history and strong values provide the foundation for the organisation we are today. We believe in mixed communities and understand the positive impact good quality housing and responsive services can have on the quality of life of our residents.
We are now seeking to recruit a new Board Member who will also be required to Chair the Audit & Risk Committee and be a member of the Finance Committee.
Preferably you will need to be a qualified accountant or a senior finance professional but not necessarily from the Housing Sector, although experience of working in a regulated environment would be of value.
If you wish to join a dynamic, enthusiastic and engaging board then we would like to hear from you.
For an informal discussion and further information about this role, please contact Kelly Shaw on 07900 363 803 or 020 3434 0990.
