Cumberland Building Society - Non-Executive Director
Cumberland Building Society is a successful, independent, regional building society and is Cumbria’s leading financial institution, with assets of over £1.9 billion and 34 branches
The Cumberland is one of the UK’s most successful regional building societies. Based in Carlisle, it offers an extensive product range, including a full current account service, commercial lending, vehicle finance and estate agency.
The Society has branches throughout Cumbria and Dumfriesshire, and in Preston, Lancaster and Haltwhistle.
The Society’s Board is looking to recruit an additional Non-Executive Director, who has the level of experience required to bring independent judgement to bear on Board matters. An accountancy or financial services background would be preferred, however, the ability to contribute fully to the Cumberland’s strategic and commercial development is as important as a specific functional background.
The Society is committed to its mutual status, its role within the regional economy and the communities that it serves. It is essential that the new Non-Executive Director demonstrates an appreciation of the values of the business, an understanding of the regional economy and an affinity with the Society’s operating area.
The role will require a time commitment of between two and three days per month. Non-Executive Directors attend monthly Board meetings and a number of sub-committee meetings each year. There are also occasional strategic review meetings and external conferences.
The appointment will be for an initial period of 3 years, subject to election by the members at the first Annual General Meeting following the appointment. A director’s fee will be paid.
