The Ethical Property Company is a great place to work, placing equal value on the social, environmental and financial outputs it generates and supporting an inspiring range of charities, social enterprises and small local organisations in the process.
As an ethical employer we aim to create a positive working environment, pay salaries which are fair and appropriate, and promote equality of opportunity.
Staff here are passionate, ambitious and are encouraged to be independent and entrepreneurial in their approach while working towards agreed collective goals. Achieving a healthy work life balance is seen as a positive achievement and benefits such as the 'cycle to work' scheme and sabbaticals after 5 years of service are all the result of the direct feedback from staff over the years.
When surveyed, 94% of our staff said they enjoyed working for the Company and that they shared our values in whole or in part. In addition, in January 2013 we were accredited as a Living Wage employer and we continue to maintain our exceptionally low pay ratio between the highest and lowest paid member of staff – 4.9:1.
You need to be an innovative and creative individual with a proven strategic profile in the commercial or voluntary sectors who can help us set the direction of the company. We are especially interested in hearing from those with a background in social impact investment raising, commercial non-residential property management or accounting although we are keen to hear from anyone who feels they have the passion and determination to help drive the company forward.
We have become the largest provider of workspace for changemakers in the UK, with 21 Centres across England, Scotland and Wales last year alone we supported over 1000 impactful organisations. Formed in 1998, we are still true to the values we had at the start and we’re backed by 1,350 plus shareholders, many of whom are progressive impact investors.
The Board plays a vital role in the work we do, providing governance and guidance to the senior management team. We’re looking for directors who can complement the existing Board and bring a new excitement and energy to how a large property portfolio can achieve maximum social impact.
Time commitment: 6 Board meetings throughout the year, which are held at our centres across the UK as well as a further six days on sub-committees and our Annual General Meeting.
