Non Executive Director - Financial Services £16.9k

The Buckinghamshire has assets of £217m and a membership of c12,500. It is a Traditional Society and offers primarily residential mortgages and savings accounts but not current accounts, personal loans, general or life assurance. It has recently appointed a new CEO and will be re-shaping its strategy to meet the new competitive and regulatory environment.

To meet the new challenge the Buckinghamshire has attracted a strong Board but now needs an additional non Executive with  particular skills regarding the strategic understanding of capital, liquidity, and the impact of pricing decisions on the long term viability of the  Society, plus a comprehensive understanding of the construction of  the ICAAP.

Board members are also responsible for establishing and maintaining the necessary framework for the management of the Society, the control of Risk, and ensuring fair treatment for our members. The ability to bring independent judgement to strategic planning, business performance measurement, and Corporate Governance is critical. A strong empathy with the Mutual business model is essential.

If you feel able to commit to between 2-3 days per month (including approximately 1 day per month at the Buckinghamshire office) and would like to work within our dynamic team to help steer the future of the Society please send your CV together with a supporting covering letter to Robin Bailey, Chairman.
