We are seeking to recruit to our Board and will give priority to people with skills in the following areas:
Customer Service – in housing, repairs or another service sector. Great customer service is one of the priorities in our 2020-25 Strategic Plan. We are especially interested in people with skills in customer communications or those who have demonstrable experience of improving customer service.
Contract Management and Procurement - in housing, repairs or another service sector. We recently moved to a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for our repairs contractors and aim to work with local contractors providing excellent service. The Board and Audit & Risk Committee will be active in seeking assurance that the new system is delivering on its objectives and in monitoring its performance.
Treasury Management - the Board has external treasury advisers but is seeking people with skills in treasury management who can add value by sharing their expertise with other board members as well as reviewing and constructively challenging proposals from our advisers.
You will have a passion for our mission and belief that everyone is entitled to a quality, affordable safe home. And you will be highly motivated to contribute to our mission to be viewed as a brilliant housing association by our residents, stakeholders and staff. You will have the opportunity to learn about and contribute to the issues faced by ISHA.
