Non Executive Directors (x2) wanted for Choice Housing

Choice Housing is the result of a merger between some of Northern Ireland’s best-performing housing associations Oaklee, Trinity and Ulidia. Operating on a group structure along with Open Door and Oaklee Housing Trust in the Republic of Ireland, the 10,000 unit landlord was formed to capitalise on the exciting business challenges and opportunities arising from a once in a generation period of change in social and affordable housing.

Already the largest housing association on the island of Ireland, we aspire to strengthen our position and resources to:

  1. Enhance services to customers
  2. Build capacity and capability
  3. Optimise their impact to improve quality of life experiences through community initiatives
  4. Demonstrate value for money for all stakeholders
  5. Attract and develop high calibre Board and staff with relevant private/commercial skills
  6. Be more enterprising and seek new commercial opportunities
  7. More effectively manage risks

Being the largest independent housing association in Northern Ireland, we strive to provide high quality homes, care and support services, provide help to meet the diverse needs of a wide range of customers, including older people, families, mature singles and people with complex needs.
Our focus is on delivering more homes, better services and stronger inclusive communities. More than 10,000 customers have made us their provider of choice and we are committed to building more high quality homes for those who are in need of support.

Our size, scale and capacity means that we can now do much more than any previous housing association and our core values commit us to shaping new standards of excellence that redefine the sector and provide more great housing and support at a reasonable cost.

The role is non remunerated, however expenses will be paid where appropriate.
