Holmesdale Building Society is seeking to appoint two new Non-Executive Directors, one of which will become Chairman of the Audit Risk and Compliance Committee (ARCC) in due course.

The Society was founded in 1855 in the heart of the Surrey Hills. The Society intends to remain an independent mutual, growing through innovative and fair products that build on a strong ethos of putting members’ interests first, while focusing on long term value and profitability.  With £190 million of assets, low arrears and an economically vibrant region, the Society has a corporate plan to grow steadily.

Candidates for both positions must have recent main Board experience at a UK retail bank, property lender, building society or friendly society.  They must also have helped shape and overseen a business’s strategic response to regulatory and market developments.

Chair of ARCC candidates must also be qualified accountants with an auditing background with the ability to review financial reporting and agree and recommend for approval of the Society’s annual accounts and annual business statement.  They must have the ability to oversee controls and risk management including Conduct Risk Management.   The successful candidate will also monitor and review the effectiveness of the Society’s compliance function and make recommendations to the board regarding the appointment of internal and external auditors.

Non-Executive Director candidates for the second position must have experience of mortgage lending, marketing and IT and be able to contribute to the Board in these areas.
