Board Member Opportunities

Reimbursement of reasonable expenses

Would you like to be part of a vibrant, sound and ambitious organisation with strong social values and purpose?

The work our client does has never been more important. They are a charity and housing association that supports homeless, vulnerable and excluded people through the provision of accommodation; community based support; street outreach; specialist treatment services; and training and work skills.

They are currently looking for three new Board Members who can contribute to the strategic direction of this successful and expanding organisation.  By strengthening their governance, these posts will help to protect the long-term future of the charity and its vital work.

You will join the Board at an exciting time; the external strategic landscape is changing and becoming more challenging.  Budgets for support services have been drastically cut so they need to think carefully how they create efficiency without compromising on quality. They are also on the cusp of reaching 1,000 units of accommodation and as a Registered Charity and registered housing provider this brings with it a greater degree of regulatory scrutiny including a strong emphasis on good governance.

They are keen to attract new Board Members who share their values and ethos, and are committed to making a real difference to the life chances of vulnerable and homeless people.

Motivation, vision, commitment and enthusiasm will be key attributes for these exciting and challenging roles.  Ideally, they would like applicants to have direct experience and expertise in any of the following: 

Finance, preferably as a qualified accountant 
Supported Housing and its regulation
Health, Social Care and the role of the Care Quality Commission

They are also seeking to build the expertise of the Board in relation to:
Strategic Planning
The needs of minority, disadvantaged and socially excluded groups

You must be able to attend six Board meetings per year (taking place on an evening in Nottingham) and one weekend away for the annual Board Conference.  Attendance at training may also be required from time to time.

Applications must be received by 12 noon on Wednesday 25 October 2017
Interviews will be held on: 13 and 14 November 2017
