Independent Non-Executive Director - YPO
Location: Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Salary: £25,000 per annum for 25 days
Posted: 02 Jun 2020
Closes: 02 Jul 2020
Job Function: Director
YPO is uniquely positioned to help the UK public sector achieve vital efficiency savings.
As public sector procurement experts, buying for over 100 local authority areas and 30,000 customers including schools, colleges and universities, we have substantial bulk-buying power. Established in 1974, we are governed by a Management Committee of elected representatives from our 13 constituent local authorities. Publicly owned but run for-profit, we have returned well over £100 million to our members over the course of the organisation’s proud history.
After a sustained period of challenging budget cuts across the public sector, there has been a slight upward change in some of our key markets, specifically education. Overall, YPO’s key customer base will continue to face financial anxiety, with pressure to drive efficiency and value for money in everything they do. This presents an opportunity for us to go for both organic growth and acquisitions to position ourselves strongly for the years ahead.
The role of Independent Director is to represent the interests of the Management Committee at the Board, providing robust and commercial challenge to the business. This requires an exceptional individual with Board or senior executive level experience in a similarly complex business, ideally with mergers and acquisitions experience, and the ability to work within our unique public / private governance model.
