Candidates must be available to attend around 10-12 meetings per year, plus an annual board conference


Reasonable out-of-pocket expenses will be reimbursed


Our client is a Registered Charity and Registered Provider delivering housing, health, employment and support and care services to people with a diverse range of care needs. Regardless of their pasts or the challenges they face, our client empowers people to have a better, more independent future.


This year a number of our client’s long-serving board members are retiring so they are looking for 4 new Board Members (including the chair of our Audit and Risk Management Committee) to contribute to the strategic direction of their successful and expanding organisation. Your contribution will make a real difference to the life chances of the people they support each year.


Our client works in an environment where the landscape is continually changing and is challenging. Budgets for support services have been drastically cut so they have had to think carefully about how they create efficiency without compromising on quality. Austerity measures continue and this is likely to mean vulnerable people falling through the gaps. By becoming a Board Member with our client, you will be part of a new team that will help to navigate a path that presents new challenges and opportunities


In terms of scale, our client works with over 18,000 individuals per year across their services, they have housing accommodation of over 1,000 units (including emergency accommodation). The annual turnover last year was c£42m and they employ over 1,000 staff to deliver their services.  Our client works across a range of geographies including Nottingham City, Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire and would particularly welcome applicants from outside their core Nottinghamshire base.


Our client is keen to attract applicants who share their values and ethos, and who are committed to helping to make a real difference to the life chances of the vulnerable people that they support.  Our client is specifically targeting people with experience in the following areas:


●      Mainstream housing

●      Property

●      HR

●      Regulatory

●      Lived experience

●      Finance


You will join the Board at an exciting time; they have a new corporate plan, they have recently completed their first in depth assessment by the Regulator of Social Housing concluding with a Governance and Viability Standard rating of V2/G2 and they are working with the regulatory seeking to enhance their rating to a V2/G1 status.  They are celebrating achieving Investors in People Gold.


If you have the motivation, vision, commitment and enthusiasm to join our client in this exciting and challenging role, apply today!
