Job Details

Building Homes. Supporting People.

We are one of the country’s fastest growing housing associations employing over 1,000 staff, with over 8,600 existing homes and 90 care and supported housing services and a development programme that will deliver a further 1,000 homes over the next two years.

However, our impact extends beyond being a housing developer and landlord, providing critical services such as financial inclusion and safeguarding for victims of domestic abuse and people living with mental health challenges, homeless night shelters and additional support and resettlement services for homeless people. As such your values, your passion to ensure residents and service users remain at the heart of everything we do, and your commitment to our social purpose will be important.

As Chair you will have a good understanding of the strategic landscape for housing providers, gained through an executive or Board role. You can provide focus, support and challenge and have a naturally collaborative style that gets the best out of people. Ideally you will have a knowledge and insight into regulatory compliance and excellence in governance. Chairing experience would be helpful, but we are happy to consider experienced board members looking for their first chair role.

Initially appointed as a Board Member with the title of Chair Designate, you will join our Board and work closely with our current Chair in the months ahead to settle into the role whilst being given the time and freedom to understand the dynamics of our Board, building your own key relationships with our Chief Executive, the Executive Team and your fellow Board Members.
