Join our Board and shape our future

Join our Board and shape our future
21st June 2018 James Calnan

Do you:

  • Want to shape services provided to you and your neighbours?
  • Have the knowledge and skills needed to influence our future?

If the answer is yes to both then we want to hear from you!

As a Community Gateway Association, Greenfields Community Housing puts residents at the heart of our business, giving tenants and leaseholders a real say in the services we deliver.

We are looking to strengthen our Board by ideally recruiting a tenant or resident leasehold member with knowledge of the communities we serve and experience of receiving our services. We pay Board members £4,000 a year for a contribution of 15 – 20 hours a month, including attending monthly 5pm meetings at Greenfields House in Braintree.

This is a great opportunity for a strong team player who is passionate about making a contribution to help celebrate our achievements, spot ways to improve what we already do, identify new opportunities and play a key role in shaping our strategic direction for the coming years.

These roles will suit individuals from varied backgrounds who have the personal and professional impact to be a strong ambassador for Greenfields. We would especially like to hear from applicants with the knowledge, skills or experience in one or more of the following areas:

  • Strong governance experience
  • Reading Accounts/Treasury Management
  • Strategic Asset Management
  • Development of new homes
  • Strong business acumen
  • Experience operating at a senior level

As an inclusive organisation which aims to reflect the community we serve, we welcome applications from everyone including people of different ethnicities, which are under represented.

For an informal discussion, please contact Pat Brandum, Interim Chief Executive, David Hall, Director of Finance & Resources or Sandra Crosby, Housing Director on 01376 535400.
