About Golding Homes

We are a Kent based housing association providing homes and services to our local communities.  Established in 2004 following the transfer of homes from Maidstone Borough Council, we have invested more than £150m in regenerating our homes and neighbourhoods. Today we manage over 7,500 properties and provide a home to more than 20,000 people. We are committed to developing high quality new homes for social, affordable and market rent, shared ownership and market sale.


Our vision is to provide outstanding services, great homes and have proud communities.



We are keen to enhance our Audit and Assurance Committee and would like to recruit an Independent Member - Audit and Insurance Committee. We are looking for an individual who aligns with our new values, ways of working, and is aligned to our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion vision. We welcome and embrace diverse talent and are committed to our colleagues working flexibly and building a healthy, vibrant and inclusive organisation that treats people with respect and creates opportunities for all.


As a Board we have undertaken an assessment of the skills and diversity we possess to ensure the first-class governance of our business. We now have a smaller Board comprising of high-quality Board members working constructively with our Executive team. We are recruiting for an Independent Member of the Audit & Assurance Committee. (The independent member does not sit on the parent board of Golding Homes.)

You will be building and maintaining effective and constructive working relationships with other members of the Committee, the Chief Executive, Director of Finance and Corporate Resources and other members of the Executive Team. You will be attending Committee meetings (minimum quarterly), away days, training sessions and other events as required. We would like you to bring your independent view and insight as an independent member of the Audit and Assurance Committee through your own knowledge and experience of corporate financial management, audit and corporate accounting.


Our priority continues to be to provide safe and secure homes for our residents in places where they choose to live. Your extensive knowledge of audit committee practices and risk management frameworks and providing impartial insight will be invaluable to support our board in making key decisions to ensure we are a resilient and robust organisation.
