  • New board member role for one of the largest supported housing providers.
  • Board Member and Chair of Group Audit Committee

About Our Client

Riverside is a group of complementary businesses with a charitable housing association at its core all driven by a clear social purpose. The Group has three key business streams around Social Housing, Care & Support, and Home Ownership. They manage approximately 77,000 homes and are present in 176 Local Authorities.

Job Description

Following a merger with One Housing, the Group Board has refocused their strategy and is looking to deliver over the next three years in five key areas; for their customers, communities, people who need extra support, colleagues and improving the social housing sector. They are looking for a board member who will also be the Group Audit Committee (GAC) Chair.

The Successful Applicant

The ideal candidate will be a qualified accountant or internal auditor who has knowledge of the social housing sector. Experience of chairing an audit committee or the ability to demonstrate the skills necessary to chair a committee are essential for the role.

The new Chair will be a good communicator, with a high level of emotional intelligence. They will have a clear understanding what is expected of GAC by board and what guidance and support to provide in a highly regulated sector.

This is an exciting opportunity to make a real impact on a newly merged and high performing supported housing provider.

It is important to Riverside that their governance community reflect the communities they serve. They are committed to being a truly inclusive employer and that commitment is as important for their Board and Committee members as it is for customers and colleagues. Riverside therefore welcomes applications from all backgrounds.

Closing date - 8th August 2023
