Jump on Board


We’re recruiting for new members to join our talented and friendly Board. If you’re passionate about people and thriving communities this is the opportunity for you.

We’re really interested in people who have one or more of the following skills:

  • A passion for housing, whether you’re a tenant or just have an interest in the housing sector
  • Asset management experience
  • Customer service skills
  • Digital skills
  • Innovation and creativity
  • An opinion, and the drive to make a difference

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds – men and women, people of all ages, sexual orientations, nationalities, religions and beliefs. We particularly encourage applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are currently underrepresented on our Board.

Why should I apply?

  • A great way to make a difference
  • An opportunity to make new friends and business contacts
  • A chance to share your skills and gain new ones
  • From January 2019 the position will attract a salary
  • It won’t take over your life, in fact we have six formal meetings a year, and four learning sessions lasting approximately two hours each.
