About the role

We are now seeking a new Chair for our HR & Governance Committee, and people to join our main board and subsidiary board, Unity Enterprise. Most importantly we are looking for people who will share our absolute passion for what we do, be committed to our social purpose, and be keen to make a positive difference to local communities.

We would especially, but not exclusively, like to hear from people with the following skills: finance; strategic HR; housing operations, property or development; and knowledge of the local area and communities. We are also interested in potential Committee Chairs for our Operations and Audit Committees, initially to shadow one of the current chairs with the view to taking on the chair role at a future date.

We are proud of our diverse Board, and want to actively encourage more applications from women, under represented and BME groups, tenants, local people or those people with local connections.

£2,850 for Board Member positions (£3,300 if appointed as a Committee Chair)

£1,300 for Board Member positions on Subsidiary Board
