Amber Board Chairperson Vacancy

An Opportunity for a Leader – New Chair for the Amber Housing Board

An opportunity has emerged for a new leader to take Amber Housing forward through its next exciting phase of development.

Amber Housing is a subsidiary of Heritage Care and has grown from a dependent position providing limited property services exclusively to Heritage Care, to delivering a range of property and facilities management services to numerous partners across London Boroughs and shire counties in the Midlands and the East of England. For an organisation of its size, Amber Housing punches above its weight and is financially sound.

We have an experienced and accomplished Board who agree that in our next stage we need an injection of dynamism together with an innovative approach to take us forward into 2020 and beyond to achieve our strategic aims.

We are looking for an individual who is willing to challenge and take risks but who also embodies and shares our values which are aligned with those of Heritage Care. The Chair needs to:  Behave with integrity, seek to inspire, respect diversity and value inclusiveness. Being innovative is a given resulting in a positive impact on the individuals supported by Heritage Care and our other partners.

As Chair of the Amber Housing Board, you will play a vital role in the organisation. We ask that you make an annual commitment to attend a minimum of four Board meetings plus ad‑hoc meetings including meetings with the organisation’s Chief Operating Officer. There will also be occasional visits to Amber Housing’s services.   

Housing related experience (gained in the public or private sector) would be great, proven leadership skills are essential, an excellent communicator, sound judgment and vision. If you’re searching for a role where you can make an impact, then this is a fantastic opportunity for you to work with an organisation that is already making a difference to people’s lives.

This is a voluntary role for a renewable term of 3 years. Please note that you need an enhanced DBS for this post.
