Great Places Housing Group – Non-Executive Directors

Non-Executive Directors – Great Places Housing Group

Location: North West
Closing date: 24 May 2021
Salary: £7,800 pa

Great Places is an innovative, ambitious and growing housing association managing 25,000 homes across the North West and Yorkshire. We have an excellent reputation as a responsible, respected and trusted landlord with an ambitious development programme and a keen focus on tackling the housing crisis in the North. We take innovative approaches to provide homes and services that make a difference in improving our customer’s lives.

About the role

You will be joining a dynamic leadership team who are well-positioned via clarity on organisational purpose and strength in financial viability, to respond to challenge and opportunity. The profit for purpose ethos has ensured that the group has been able to directly support many thousands of customers experiencing hardship in the current environment. Investment in homes and neighbourhoods has also continued at pace.

We have a Board with mixed skills and public and private sector experience. For one of the roles a background in social housing/property management is going to be helpful. For the other two roles we do not wish to be prescriptive about professional or sector background and see this as an opportunity to focus on Board diversity and achieve an effective blend of skills and experience. What we need is the right attitude – people who are keen to contribute to the region’s socio-economic needs, via innovative thinking, creative planning, as well as constructive debate. You will find an organisation that is keen to stretch further, so the roles will suit those who are ambitious and like to keep moving forward with purpose.
