You won’t find a more exciting and rewarding home for your non-executive expertise than Accent Housing. Operating from our head office in Yorkshire and supported by regional teams across the country, we’re a commercially-managed housing business with moral purpose, providing high-quality and affordable homes and improving lives.

And it works. Our trajectory of growth and development has seen us develop more than 6,000 homes in the past decade, and we have ambitious plans to reach 30,000 by 2020. But it’s not just growth for its own sake; we recognise that if we’re to carry on delivering ever-better services to ever-more people, in an operating environment of reducing resources and increasing uncertainty, we need to develop the resilience, autonomy and capacity to address the challenges which will inevitably face us in the future.

So assembling the right governance structure is absolutely business-critical. We’re looking for people with intellectual energy, proven ability at the top level of your professional field, and a personal commitment to making a difference to the lives of many thousands of people.

As well as our Group non-executive opportunities we also have opportunities for individuals to take on Committee non-exec roles. We’re particularly interested to hear from people with experience in audit and/or asset management for our Committee roles. Similar professional backgrounds are equally relevant for our Group roles, as well as those with more general finance / commercial leadership credentials. But what will set your application apart in either case is a clear track record of thinking and acting strategically, and leaving things permanently better than you find them.

For an informal discussion and to find out more about these exciting opportunities, please contact Anne Elliott at EMA on 01926 887272.  For further information and how to apply please visit

Strictly no agencies, please.

Closing date: 12 September.
