Overview

We are looking for high-calibre individuals who can demonstrate a clear understanding of the challenges we and our customers face, and who are genuinely passionate about the positive impact that good social care can make. You will use your experience, expertise and insight to help shape the strategy and direction of our charity, for the benefit of our residents, customers and the wider community, and to meet our charitable aims.

Perhaps you already have experience as a Trustee and want a new challenge, or perhaps you have relevant skills and are looking for your first opportunity to join a Board and be involved in a large and successful charity. Then this is the opportunity for you. Our Board is friendly and welcoming, with a wealth of both professional and life experience. It has an open and supportive culture which embraces diversity and welcomes new ideas. We want our Board to reflect the diversity of the communities we serve and welcome applicants from all parts of the community.

To strengthen our Board, we are specifically looking for people with knowledge and experience in the following areas:

I.T. and assistive technology
Housing management, particularly supported housing
Managing and delivering social care services.

We will prioritise applicants who have been unpaid carers or who are family members of someone receiving care and support.

Candidates will be informed if shortlisted shortly after the closing date and interviews will be held on the Tuesday 23rd February 2016 and Friday 26th February 2016.

Please note the interview date will still remain the same.
