We are seeking a new chair to join the board in leading our strategic direction, financial management and governance. This role is unremunerated and is based in London and Swindon.

As an independent charity with a close working relationship with our funder, Nationwide Building Society, we are looking for an astute chair who brings a blend of corporate and charity experience. You will be a skilled and experienced chair, someone who knows how to get the best out of a board, rich with a diverse mix of talent and expertise. You need not come from a housing background – what you will bring is personal credibility, an exceptional ability for communicating and managing relationships and be an ambassador for the Foundation.

If you are passionate about change that will improve people’s lives, have the experience we are looking for, and are interested in becoming our new chair, we very much look forward to hearing from you.

Following the appointment of the chair, we will be seeking two trustees to join our board. Trustees will have a strategic outlook and the personal credibility to contribute as part of an engaged and forward-thinking board. To register your interest in the trustee roles please contact GatenbySanderson on the details below.

We value diversity and encourage applications from disabled and black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds as these are currently under-represented on our board.
