ISHA Board member
Islington and Shoreditch Housing Association (ISHA) is a community and neighbourhood-based housing organisation, managing and developing quality affordable housing for people in North and East London since 1933.
We have 2,500 homes and employ 68 people. We lead the North River Alliance (NRA) and work in close co-operation with other local housing associations, including Black and minority ethnic housing associations, special needs housing associations and co-operatives.
Our G1 Governance rating and V2 Financial Viability rating was re-confirmed by the Regulator of Social Housing in August 2021 following an in-depth assessment.
About the role
We are seeking board members who have passion for our vision to co-create homes and communities where everyone can flourish. We want to be viewed as a brilliant housing association by our residents, stakeholders and staff.
We are recruiting three roles to our Board and will give priority to people with skills and experience in the following areas as well as to those who live or work in North or East London:
- Customer Service
- Lived experience as a social housing tenant
- People & Organisational Development
All candidates will also be expected to have governance experience. This could include roles on the board of a company, charity or voluntary organisation; roles in school governance; or involvement with a tenant resident association, scrutiny panel or other types of resident groups.
Our board currently has 6 evening meetings per year and 2 away days. Members are also asked to join at least one committee. Committees meet three to four evenings per year.
The Board recently took a decision to remunerate board members in line with other non-profit London based housing associations of similar size. Remuneration for regular board member roles is £3,600 per annum.
