Independent Committee Member (Audit and Risk)
Driven by our values, Dimensions is one of the country’s leading not-for-profit organisations supporting people with learning disabilities and/or autism. The people we support, and their families are at the heart of everything we do and we want every person we support to have a great life. We are a financially resilient organisation, operating in the challenging but rewarding social care sector and currently improving the lives of 3,500 people.
The people we support are central to our existence and as such we are focussed on doing all that we can to ensure their safety and well-being. The Group Audit and Risk Committee (GARC) has an integral part to play in ensuring that risk is effectively managed by the Group, focussing on financial reporting, risk management, audit, whistleblowing and internal governance. The Committee helps to ensure that high standards of financial probity are in place, allowing us to allocate our resources in such a way that we are able to support more people, creating better outcomes.
We are looking to appoint an Independent Committee Member to help ensure that our assurance framework is robust and effective. Our governance is both well established and professional but as a learning organisation we see independent scrutiny as being critical. We need to continue to challenge our systems of risk management and control, to learn from our successes as well as our mistakes.
We are interested in applications from people who have had a successful career in risk management and/or internal audit, bringing both strategic and operational insight. Experience of advising at Board Level will be essential. We are open to sector, but it is likely that you will have worked in a large and complex organisation within a regulated sector.
Most importantly you will share our values and drive to help improve life opportunities for the people we support.
At Dimensions we are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of background. We value diversity on our board and would particularly encourage applications from underrepresented groups.
