Johnnie Johnson’s Board are seeking to appoint new Board Members in line with our approach to succession planning for future vacancies.
Specifically, we are looking for two positions:
* Group Board member who will also join the Audit & Risk Committee – our current Chair has 2 years term of office remaining, so we are looking for a designate Chair of Audit & Risk. Our expectation is that the postholder will have experience in finance, risk and treasury. (This is the “Audit” Role).
* Group Board member with housing development and investment skills and experience – to join our Development Committee which focuses both on new build and existing asset management. (This is the “Development” role).
However, we would also like to take this opportunity to look for other, generally interested Board Members with the competencies and skills that would contribute to our vision of “Living Longer, Living Better and making Johnnie Johnson Housing an Outstanding Provider of Homes and Services for Independent Living”. If you think you have something to offer outside of the two specific roles we have stated above, please do make a submission. (These are “General” roles.)
Positions are currently for up to 3 terms of a period of 3 years, (subject to annual performance reviews) although this is currently under review.
Experience in a Non-Executive role is desirable, however is not essential.
We also have an under representation of females and Board Members from black, minority and ethnic communities.
Group Board Member roles are remunerated at £4,448 per annum. The Development Committee Board Member role is £1,523 per annum. In addition, reasonable expenses are paid in line with our policy. These will be reviewed this year in line with our 3-year Remuneration Review.
Board Meetings are quarterly, with 2 additional Strategy Sessions (summer and winter). Committee Meetings may vary depending on need. Engagement with the organisation is expected between formal meetings, within the remit of a Non-Executive Director.
Due to the current Covid19 measures, all Board Meetings and Committee Meetings are virtual. This recruitment exercise will also be undertaken on a virtual basis using video or call conferences.
