Newton Abbot, Devon
Teign Housing owns and manages over 3,600 homes across Teignbridge, the South Hams, East Devon and Exeter. We employ over 100 members of staff and we are a registered charity governed by our Board of Management. We are dedicated to providing high quality customer services and making the local area a better place to live by creating sustainable communities and working in partnership.
Teign Housing has a lot to celebrate. When we were recently assessed by the Regulator for Social Housing, we were awarded the top V1/G1 ratings for financial viability and governance. In 2020 we were delighted to have retained our status as one of the best employers in the UK, following the re-award of our Investors in People We invest in people, platinum accreditation.
Due to the previous incumbent moving onto our Board we are looking for an Independent Audit Committee Member who can provide constructive challenge as we make the tough decisions that will help us to continue providing good quality homes and services for our local community in an ever-changing operating environment. We are keen to hear from candidates with experience of risk management and internal controls assurance.
We are seeking candidates with management experience, strategic leadership and vision, as well as a passion for the sector and a commitment to Teign Housing. Preferably, candidates will have some experience of Board level work and an understanding of the social housing sector but this might be an ideal opportunity for someone looking to start their non-executive career or make a move into the sector. The time commitment for the role is approximately 6 days per year with training and meetings generally held in the early afternoon.
Teign Housing strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community. We operate an inclusive and transparent recruitment and assessment process, underpinned by an organisational commitment to equality and diversity. We are particularly interested to hear from groups where Teign Housing (and the housing sector in general) are currently under- represented at Board level (for example with respect to ethnicity, younger ages, disability, LGBTQ+, and those living in areas of low social mobility). Prior experience as a Board member – or an understanding of the housing sector and the regulatory context within which we operate would be useful but is not essential, as training and support can be provided.
