iCo (short for Islington Company) is the trading arm of Islington Council.
iCo is looking for a Non-Executive Director to bring commercial expertise to its Board to help grow the company by generating revenue from existing and new business ideas. iCo is still relatively new and the Board is seeking the support of an experienced, commercially-minded individual to advise on setting commercial targets and objectives, enhancing leadership and ensuring there is effective governance and control.

The income generated by iCo is ploughed back into services which make a difference locally, tackling poverty and reducing inequality in our borough. If you have the skills we are looking for, and if the prospect of supporting our fairness agenda through creating and building commercial opportunities motivates you, then please apply.
