Location: Mile End, London
Job type: Permanent
Sector: Housing
Salary: £3,400 plus reasonable expenses
Ref: GSe65126

Gateway Housing Association is looking to appoint two new Board Members, to provide strategic leadership and governance and ensure we deliver our vision and mission.

We are an ambitious resident focussed London based housing association with over 3,000 homes in the heart of London’s East End. We provide social rented homes, shared ownership and sheltered housing. We are at the start of an exciting new three year strategy and are looking to deliver 390 homes by 2023 . We also run our own in-house maintenance service, Gateway Homeworks.

We are looking for individuals to join our experienced Board. We are particularly interested in people with the following skills:

  • Financial expertise, having operated at Director level, with both financial performance and treasury experience. This board member will serve on our subsidiary boards of Gateway Living and Victoria Park Housing Development
  • Experience of asset management and/or Health and Safety property compliance

As there are two roles to fill candidates are required to have a background in some but not all of the above areas.

This is an exciting time to join Gateway Housing as we’ve been making great strides in creating an open and engaging culture; among our staff, and our residents. We’re looking for individuals with a passion for the housing sector, an ability to reflect and, ideally, knowledge of Gateway’s geography and demography to compliment this.

If you are interested in the housing sector, passionate about Tower Hamlets and would be able to contribute some of the skills we are looking for, we look forward to hearing from you.

We would also strongly welcome applications from people who are residents in or near Tower Hamlets. We are Leadership 2025 Diversity Champions. The Board has committed to an aspirational target of 50% recruitment of women and/or BAME candidates to ensure a diverse board.
