Aylesbury based with some agile working
We provide affordable homes to over 20,000 people and have a growing portfolio of properties. With an annual turnover of GBP50 million and over 280 employees, we make a significant contribution to our communities throughout the Vale of Aylesbury and the surrounding areas of Buckinghamshire and beyond.
Despite the impact of the pandemic this is an exciting time for us. Our 'Bigger, Better, Bolder & Beyond' Corporate Strategy sets out our drive and ambition to 2025 and includes our aim to maintain our position as the most significant social landlord in our area. Providing more homes across all affordable housing tenures and homes for sale through Fairfax Housing, which is our newly created subsidiary, are important goals. We are also responding to the challenges that we face, particularly in reducing our environmental impact and improving our sustainability.
We are seeking a committed and enthusiastic Board member who can bring new perspectives, particularly in our approach to customer services and meeting customer needs. As an affordable housing provider, building on our accountability to residents and ensuring they have an effective collective voice is a key aim for us, so we welcome applications from individuals with expertise in these areas.
Your strong interpersonal skills and enthusiasm will enable you to act as an ambassador for the Trust, and win the confidence of residents, stakeholders and employees alike.
This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity for candidates who have a clear strategic leadership focus and who are strong team players with the ability to both support and challenge through fresh thinking and innovation.
If this looks like an exciting challenge and you are interested in being part of a driven and successful organisation, then we want to hear from you.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
We're inclusive with a strong set of values which express our commitment to becoming a leader in our field, providing quality affordable homes and investing in Aylesbury Vale's diverse communities. We celebrate innovation and different points of view and want a Board that is reflective of the communities we serve. Thus we welcome applicants from BAME backgrounds, and applicants who have status as an individual with a physical or mental disability. This may be your first Non-Executive Director role and we welcome people who are outside the Housing sector. However, more important is your enthusiasm, willingness to contribute and a real commitment to connect and bring us closer to our customers and communities. We are a Disability Confident Employer.
