Approximate Time Commitment: 14 – 16 days per annum.
Here at Trent & Dove we’re committed to our mission of “Transforming Homes, Lives and Communities”. As a new Non-Executive Director, you’d be joining our organisation at an exciting time - the planning and development phase for our next 5-year Strategic Plan cycle. We’re looking for someone who can contribute strong, recent financial, accountancy, treasury or investment management skills and experience to help the Board in this process, and to shape and oversee the key strategic priorities for our organisation. All our NEDs are a member of one of our Board Committees and, if appointed, you’d join the Board’s Audit & Risk Assurance Committee.
Trent & Dove strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community. We operate an inclusive and transparent recruitment and assessment process, underpinned by an organisational commitment to equality and diversity. We are particularly interested to hear from groups where Trent & Dove (and the housing sector in general) are currently under represented at Board level (for example with respect to ethnicity, younger ages, disability, LGBT+, and those living in areas of low social mobility). Prior experience as a Board member - or an understanding of the housing sector and the regulatory context within which we operate would be useful but is not essential, as training and support can be provided.
Who we are:
Trent & Dove is a Registered Provider of Social Housing (a “Housing Association”). For the past 20 years, we’ve provided quality, affordable homes for rent, lease or shared ownership across East Staffordshire, North West Leicestershire and South Derbyshire and we currently have over 6,300 homes under management. We’re a non-profit with social purpose - the profit we make is reinvested back into our organisation to continuously improve our services for customers and to support the work of our community partners and stakeholders.
Alongside the housing and ancillary support services we provide, we also have an ambitious new build growth and regeneration programme which aims to deliver circa. 3% new growth p.a. Alongside our new build activities, we also have an active asset management and investment programme which seeks to continuously improve the quality and efficiency of our stock to benefit our customers and ensure their homes are fit for the future.
Finally, we believe that an organisation is only ever as good as the people it works with – and we work with some great people! Over 200 committed and passionate staff, involved residents and Board and Committee members, alongside our Local Authority partners, charities and community groups in the areas where we operate. We believe that housing is more than just bricks and mortar - and our mission and values are designed to support and create thriving communities that people are proud to be a part of.
