About the role

We are currently looking to recruit up to two new Board members and particularly keen to speak to individuals with a background in either property development, organisational development and design, or marketing and communications. But we are also looking for people who can add value by their ability to think differently and strategically and who can make an effective Board level contribution, helping whg deliver its vision.

As a community focused business the values and understanding you bring will be crucial whether your background is the commercial, public or not-for-profit sector. If your values and your commitment to social justice match ours we would like to hear from you.

We are also keen to increase the diversity of our Board and particularly welcome applications from women.
