Unremunerated, all reasonable expenses paid.
We are seeking a non-executive board trustee to join our Board of 12 who share our vision for being an exemplary provider of housing and services to older people.
We are a small, locally based housing association and Almshouse Charity but that doesn’t mean we are short on ambition. Over the last 3 years we have achieved 10% growth, creating 122 new homes. In partnership with Residents and Staff, the Board is shaping our future to ensure that we optimise our ability to support local housing and health related strategies and provide homes people love to live in.
In order to help with the balance of skills, we would especially like to hear from people with senior level financial or legal experience within not for profit and commercial settings. We welcome applications from all sectors of the community to reflect the diversity of our customers and our communities. We are currently underrepresented with female Trustees and people from minority ethnic origins.
In line with our charitable objects and the will of our legacy benefactors, preferably but not essentially, candidates are able to demonstrate a connection to our areas of operation i.e. Hull and East Yorkshire. It is anticipated that applicants will live no more than 90 minutes’ drive from our office. The time commitment is approximately 1.5 days per month to include board meetings, training, strategy discussions, committees and other meetings throughout the year.
We believe that this is a perfect opportunity to develop your non-executive experience, being part of a successful local housing charity with a strong track record and nationally recognised performance.
To apply, please submit a current CV, short supporting statement (no more than 2 pages A4 size) and send with the completed equalities monitoring form to Racheal Hoult and marked Private and Confidential. Email submissions can be made by sending to Racheal.email@example.com or by post to Pickering and Ferens Homes, Silvester House, Silvester Street, Hull HU1 3HA.
For an informal discussion with the Chief Executive, Claire Warren, please ring Racheal Hoult, Governance and Executive Support Assistant on 01482 313514.
Closing date for returned applications: Friday 7th July 2017, 5pm.
Interviews dates to be determined – candidate availability will be considered.
