Help our client to deliver 'More homes, great services, better lives'
Our client is a unique, complex, successful and innovative not for profit organisation, providing over 9,500 homes for tenants in the East Midlands. They provide over 943,000 hours of help to vulnerable people through their extensive provision of housing with care and support services including learning disabilities, mental health, domestic abuse, older people and young adults. They have a turnover in excess of GBP80million and employ over 1,100 staff.
The Association is governed by a Board of Management who are collectively responsible for ensuring the success of the business by directing the Association's affairs and determining its strategic aims.
Our Board has had a proud history of achieving a mix of members from diverse backgrounds and we are currently looking to recruit two new members. We require applicants to meet the person specification and, ideally, are also looking for individuals who have skills and knowledge in either of the following areas:
?? Finance/Audit skills - understanding of the issues facing a large diverse organisation; or
?? Information Technology - in particular an understanding of the key issues associated with cyber security and data protection
New board members will join a successful Board and contribute to the development of a dynamic and well run organisation.
If you've got a passion for housing and/or social care and live in the East Midlands, then they'd love to hear from you.
They particularly welcome applications from candidates; under 40 years of age, from BME backgrounds or who are disabled, as these groups are currently under represented on the Board
