• Job description

    The Audit & Risk Committee provides assurance to the Poplar HARCA Board on the effectiveness of our system of audit (external and internal) and risk management that is consistent with the corporate strategy, statutory and regulatory requirements, and best practice.
    The committee also monitors production of the statutory accounts, internal controls, fraud policy and probity, and statutory/regulatory compliance.

    Committee members report directly to the Chair of that Committee, which is responsible for carrying out powers delegated by the Poplar Board. They also work with the relevant members of the Corporate Management Team to achieve the objectives of the Committee.

    Poplar HARCA is an award-winning Housing and Regeneration Community Association in East London.

    Our Purpose
    Creating opportunities together that realise community potential through exceptional homes and thriving places with social justice at our core

    Our Story
    Our residents voted us into existence over 20 years ago. We are led by the needs and aspirations of the community we serve. They are at the heart of every decision we make and hold us to account.

    Today, we own and manage over 9,000 homes and, with partners, we are leading a £2.5bn place-shaping programme including new homes, education, healthcare, faith buildings, business and community spaces.

    We invest around £4m each year in community regeneration. That means helping people into work and training, providing state of the art creative spaces for young people, initiatives to improve health and wellbeing, events, networking and affordable workspace.

    We have strong and enduring partnerships with like-minded people and organisations. They support our ambitions and help us achieve so much more than we could alone.

    We are a proud reflection of our East London community, and over a third of our 350 employees live locally.
