KCTMO – Resident-Elected Board Members

The Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017 resulted in the tragic loss of 72 lives and devastated the local community.  As a result, a number of public investigations and reviews have been initiated into the causes of the fire and the relevant regulatory framework. These reviews should lead to fundamental and far-reaching change in housing and building policy.

The Kensington & Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (KCTMO), formally managed the tower and was client to the refurbishment work, but now solely exists to support and be accountable to the Public Inquiry and all other legal proceedings arising from the Grenfell Tower tragedy. Through this role it will contribute to the necessary learning to avoid this tragedy reoccurring and ultimately policy changes to improve public safety.

Location(s): London
Job Type: Non-Executive
Closing date: October 29 2018
Salary: Unremunerated

About the role

To maintain KCTMO as a corporate entity which can be accountable to the Inquiry, Police prosecutions and any other claims, a new constitution has been agreed, the current Board will step down at the next AGM and a new, smaller Board is being sought, with a specific skillset and remit.

We are seeking: three independent Board members who will be selected by a KCTMO interview panel and two members of the Board who will be elected by resident members of KCTMO.

Board members will need to demonstrate that they have either: direct senior management of operating a social housing organisation; or Board level experience of operating a social housing organisation or a relevant, recognised professional qualification.

We imagine that the applicants willing to consider these roles will have a strong sense of civic duty, unimpeachable integrity, and a willingness to listen and engage, with a view to helping support the greater public good.
