We're looking for an independent Board Member

We’re looking for someone with the right skills and experience to become a PCH Board Member and really make a difference for the people who live in our homes.

PCH focusses on providing good quality homes and services that our residents want and can afford. We’re looking for someone to join our board to help us grow our business – we want to keep our customers at our heart and become more commercial so that we can develop more homes for the people who need them.

We’re particularly keen to involve local people in the Governance of the organisation as Board members. Your motivation, willingness to learn and participate is as important as the skills and experience you bring. We have a strong commitment to equal opportunities which includes representing the diverse views and needs of all our communities.

Elaine Pellow, Board Member said: “I can’t really describe how it feels being a part of something like PCH. It doesn’t seem like an organisation, it’s like a living, breathing presence and that’s down to the staff and the Board who really care about the people of Plymouth and believe in what they do. Every single person in PCH adds real value – and that’s what sets us apart.”

As our new Board Member you will have experience and skills in any of the following areas, preferably at a senior level:

  • Finance & Business
  • Housing Development
  • Professional Housing Management
  • Asset Management
  • Legal

You’ll need to be an team player who can lead by example with a collaborative and inclusive style, and most importantly you’ll have a commitment to our core values as well as a passion for social housing and the real difference it can make to people’s lives. We are committed to providing our Board members with support and access to opportunities to develop important skills and experience so please do not hesitate to apply.

For further information, or an informal and confidential discussion about the position, please contact Leanne Eastwood, Governance Officer or call on 0808 230 6500.
