Chair of Development & Investment Committee (salary £12k p.a)

Chair of Treasury Committee (salary 12k p.a)

NED - Thirteen Homes Board (salary £4k p.a)

Thirteen is a housing association with strength, capacity and ambition to deliver for our customers, who are always at the centre of what we do. We are the largest housing association in the North East and among the biggest 25 nationally; owning and managing 34,000 properties in the North East region, 30,000 of them in the Tees Valley.

We’re more than a landlord; our scope extends to supporting vulnerable people with thoughtful and effective services, improving our homes and estates and building new places for people to live. Our skilled colleagues and board directors work tirelessly to support 70,000 tenants and customers, bringing a breadth of experience and a can-do attitude.

These opportunities are key non-executive leadership roles within our Group. The Thirteen Board has four committees with delegated responsibility for specific functions to support the delivery of our strategic objectives, and we are looking to appoint a Chair to each of the following two:

  • Development & Investment Committee: an individual with expertise in property development and/or regeneration activities
  • Treasury Committee: someone with professional finance / accountancy expertise, and ideally specific experience in treasury management

We are also looking for a Non-Executive Director who will sit on the board of Thirteen Homes (wholly owned subsidiary of Thirteen Group) who will provide expertise and knowledge of residential development and sales.

These opportunities are for individuals with the highest degree of integrity, who can bring strategic insight and challenge to our work, and who are passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives. With the Chairs roles, you’ll ensure that our committees have a clear sense of purpose and accountability, supporting other Board members to take collective responsibility and achieve objectives. You must be able to influence decision-making, provide strategic leadership and work collaboratively to inspire constructive debate around key issues. A strong track record in understanding and mitigating risk, and evaluating organisational performance to ensure economy, effectiveness and efficiency is also required.

These roles present a unique opportunity to invest your expertise on behalf of others and to play your part in improving the lives of those in your community.
