Are you ready to make a difference?
We are a strong organisation, which has developed significantly in the 25+ years since our creation in 1994, with a portfolio of over 11,800 homes across the country and a diverse range of business streams serving over 78,000 tenants and customers.
Our values and core purpose sit at the heart of our ambitious Strategic Plan which sets out several challenging targets for our continued work over the forthcoming years. In particular, we plan to invest more in our homes and neighbourhoods, to build more affordable, energy-efficient homes for rent, shared ownership, and for sale, and to deliver support services and specialised accommodation for people with support needs. We plan to continue assisting people who are at risk of homelessness or have become homeless and to help people into training, volunteering, and employment.
We are determined to do our very best to achieve these aims and make a positive difference to people's lives and are, therefore, keen to hear from people who share our ambitions. We are looking to recruit suitably qualified and experienced NEDs as part of our ongoing succession planning, expecting new NED appointments to bring fresh ideas and a commitment to the Group’s vision and values.
We currently are looking to recruit to two roles on the Group Board.
Non-Executive Director (Commercial House Building and Land Acquisition) - Salary £9,000
Non-Executive Director (Adult Social Care and Supported Living) – Salary £8,000
In addition to our high quality, general needs social housing, we provide:
- Independent living for people over 55
- Supported living for those with additional needs
- Keyworker accommodation for the health sector
The Group is also a regional leader in telecare, supporting around 60,000 customers, principally in the North West.
In providing high-quality homes, supporting independence by utilising technology, and creating opportunities through education, training and employment, we can positively impact the lives of our customers and the communities in which they live.
Our future ambition will see us continue to invest in our existing homes and neighbourhoods and the provision of high quality services and support for our customers.
Through our commercial subsidiary Concert Living Limited, we develop properties for outright sale.
With all this activity in mind, good governance is central to what we do.
Our Board plays a vital role in setting the strategic direction of the Group, driving culture and positive change. We now have two opportunities for people who share our values, and our commitment to improving lives, to join our Board.
We want to hear from people with:
- Experience and knowledge of commercial house building and land acquisition. This person will also sit on the Board of Concert Living Limited.
- Expertise, be it lived or professional, in adult social care and supported living. This person will also sit on our Reside with Progress (RWP) Committee. RWP provides high-quality supported living accommodation to meet the needs and aspirations of people with varying support needs, primarily learning disabilities and/or autism.
We value the diversity of professional and personal experience. In addition, because people with Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds, candidates with disabilities and younger people are currently under-represented on our Board, we would particularly welcome applications from people who are representative of these characteristics.
