Platform Housing Group was formed last year following the merger of Waterloo Housing Group and Fortis Living. With around 45,000 homes, assets of £2bn, and a turnover of £230m, we are one of the largest Registered Providers of housing in the Midlands, and one of the top 15 nationally - and there's never been a more exciting time to get involved!
As an ambitious Group with a clear aim to deliver 2,000 new homes a year and transform the way we deliver services to customers, with technology at the fore in our brand new Strategic Plan, we are looking to appoint two new board members with skills sets and experience that complement the current Board, which will help take us forward as we enter the next phase of our evolution.
As a board member, you will champion a culture of good governance, ensuring the board thinks strategically and embraces innovation, commerciality and social purpose whilst ensuring the customer voice is heard.
Alongside the Chair, fellow board members and executives, you will take responsibility for setting the strategic vision and direction of the Group, in line with regulatory requirements and the Group’s objectives.
Where necessary, you will also act as an ambassador and representative for the Group with external stakeholders; upholding the reputation of Platform and its values and objectives.
We are looking for someone with board level leadership experience as a senior executive with significant P&L experience and a track record of growth, change or strategic partnering in a forward-looking organisation of comparable scale and complexity.
You must have demonstrable financial acumen and experience of business planning, preferably within a regulated sector.
