North Star – Board Members


We’re an award winning, North East based, Housing Association and our purpose is to provide affordable housing, invest in our communities and develop new homes across the Tees Valley, North Yorkshire and County Durham.

Location(s): Stockton-on-Tees
Job Type: Non-Executive
Closing date: October 12 2018
Salary: £3,396 per annum

About the role

We build homes but, more importantly, we create futures. We place people at the forefront of everything we do. Our vision, our values and our organisational strategy are all centred on creating and sustaining great places for people to live and work in.

We strive to make a difference and our culture is what sets us apart from the rest. We hear, we listen and most importantly, we act. We embrace challenge and change, continually striving to improve and enhance the lives of our staff and our tenants.

We’re looking for three Board members who share our passion, our values and our sense of purpose. You will be committed to the highest standards of governance and enjoy being part of a strategically focused, committed and people-centred team – going the extra mile when needed.

To ensure we maintain a diversity of background and experience and a strong skill set on our Board we are particularly keen to hear from individuals with a background in finance, housing (development or housing operations), health and social care, customer services and digital technology.

The sector you come from is less important than the strategic skills and experience you can apply to help shape and grow our organisation.
