Cumberland Building Society is a successful, independent, regional building society with assets of over £2 billion and 34 branches
The Cumberland is one of the UK’s most successful regional building societies. Based in Carlisle, it offers an extensive product range, including a full current account service, commercial lending, and vehicle finance and estate agency. The Society has branches throughout Cumbria and Dumfriesshire, and in Preston, Lancaster and Haltwhistle.
The Society’s Board is looking to recruit an additional Non-Executive Director. The successful candidate will have gained senior executive or Board level experience within financial services organisations, preferably within a retail environment, and have the necessary recent and relevant experience required to bring independent judgement to bear on Board matters and to contribute fully to the Society’s strategic development.
The Society is strongly committed to its mutual status, its role within the regional economy and the communities that it serves. The successful candidate must therefore demonstrate a knowledge and understanding of, and commitment to, these key aspects of the Society.
The role will require a time commitment of between two and three days per month. Non-Executive Directors attend monthly Board meetings and a number of sub-committee meetings each year. There are also occasional strategic review meetings and external conferences.
The appointment will be for an initial period of 3 years, subject to election by the members at the first Annual General Meeting following the appointment. A director’s fee will be paid.
