Croydon (mix of in-person and virtual meetings)
£2,050 per annum
At ccha we take pride in putting residents at the heart of what we do and making them part of our journey to provide better homes, housing services and sustainable communities. We have over 1500 homes, including social housing, shared ownership and outright sale and we operate across 3 London Boroughs: Croydon, Sutton & Bromley.
We are a growing and dynamic association with a current development programme of 50/60 much needed new homes a year over the course of our current 5-year corporate plan.
The Board plays a critical role at ccha and is ultimately responsible for determining our strategic direction, monitoring the overall performance of the organisation, managing risk and ensuring the right resources are in place and that we meet our legal responsibilities.
We are now looking to appoint two new Board Members who are keen to make a positive contribution to ccha and ensure we continue delivering on our promises.
Residents are key members of our Board, so for one of the roles, we are looking specifically for experience of living in ccha homes. This is a great opportunity to get involved and have real influence on the decisions we take and ensuring that our residents are happy and safe in their homes. Alternatively, you may be a resident of another local housing association, who can bring similar lived experience. Either way, you will have an interest in customer engagement and will play an active role in our Remuneration & Nominations Committee.
For the other role, we are looking for senior level skills in asset management, combined with strong financial awareness and, preferably, some understanding of the social housing sector. We are looking for the enthusiasm and commitment to becoming an active Board Member and serving on the Audit & Risk Committee and Development Committee and possibly our not-for-profit company, ccha developments Ltd, but this will not be all at the same time and can be worked around your other commitments.
Both roles require strategic thinking skills, the ability to absorb and challenge information and a good appreciation of what constitutes good governance. We will support you to develop your skills through ongoing training and enable you to grow and contribute in equal measure to become fully effective in these roles.
Our Board meets 6 times a year, plus strategy planning, committee meetings and training sessions.
At ccha, diversity and inclusion are central to our values and the way that we operate. We are committed to equality of opportunity for all candidates and welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds.
