Recruiter: Clarion Housing Group
Posted: 12 Aug 2019
Closes: 03 Sep 2019
Job Function: Board Member
Industry: Construction / Property
Clarion Housing Group is the country’s largest housing association, with a turnover in excess of £815m and nearly 125,000 homes nationwide.
We are a business for social purpose and a leading developer, committed to building 50,000 homes over the next 10 years. We are also delivering one of the most substantial social investment programmes in the UK, committing £150m over 10 years to support communities and improve the lives of our residents.
We are proud of our national footprint and capacity to have a positive impact across the country. Building new homes and investing in communities is a high priority. Our scale, talented workforce of over 4,000 people and financial strength allow us to take a long-term vision and approach to investment in our homes and communities, helping to deliver on our mission to provide good quality, affordable homes and neighbourhoods to people inadequately served by the market.
With the appointment of a new Chair, David Avery earlier this year, and a number of current board members due to complete their maximum terms in the coming year, we are looking to strengthen our already high-calibre board ensuring we bring in new board members who will add diversity and quality as we navigate the urgency and complexity of the housing crisis in this country.
We are looking to appoint up to four new board members in 2019 and initially looking for people with either track records in senior roles within digital marketing and communications gained in large complex, customer-facing organisations or bring significant experience of local authorities and the public sector, and ideally knowledge of planning legislation and policy. A strong understanding of good governance and prior experience as a serving non-executive is desirable.
We are embedding diversity and inclusion into everything we do at Clarion and we will welcome applications from people with the widest possible range of backgrounds.
