Would you like to be part of an ambitious organisation looking to influence solutions to the sectors future? If so, SEC are looking for dynamic leaders like you to join our Board…
We support more than 80 providers of social housing. 43 of these are Member/Owner organisations who have 436k homes between them.
Over the last five years SEC have seen significant customer and financial growth. Our approach has been to provide customers with a range of options and advice to support their Asset Management strategies. And, in addition we’ve grown the Consortium’s profile so it’s become recognised across the sector. But, we know more can be done.
We’re working through a 2020-23 strategic plan with a simple message – to do more for our Members. This includes services both pre and post procurement as well as training and other development opportunities. In addition we’re supporting people who want a career in housing and studying topics that will influence the shape of our sector for years to come. It doesn’t stop here – you’ll have an even bigger part to play in shaping our business’ exciting future.
With this in mind we’re looking for our Members to nominate enthusiastic and creative thinkers! Our strategy coincides with economic uncertainty and environmental change – and we need you to assist us with the development of projects, initiatives and services which really make a difference to the sector.
We’re specifically looking for candidates who have a background in one of these areas:
- First class organisational governance
- Sales and Marketing
- Financial planning and risk
- Carbon reduction
- Facilities or Estate Management
We’re looking for colleagues who will complement the existing range of Board skills. Please see the full JD’s for both our Chair and Board Member Vacancies below. Board members can be nominated by any SEC Member. Unsure if you’re a Member? View our full members list here.
We particularly want to hear from you if you have some or all of the following experience:
- A thorough understanding and passion for social housing
- commercial experience
- experience of running a small business
- good financial (I&E and budgeting) knowledge
- experience of risk management.
In addition, all Board members will have a strong commitment to social values and putting Members/customers at the heart of services.
You’d be signing up to a 3 year term on the SEC Board. The position is a voluntary role based on 6 meetings a year (2.5 hours each) plus an Annual Awayday. You’d also need to allow yourself some preparation time for each meeting.
In return SEC will commit to supporting you with your career – we’ll offer you a chance to join a bespoke training session for Board Members (delivered by an external partner).
If you’re interested in being part of our team we’d love to hear from you.
