• Job description

    BCHA is a dynamic, charitable housing association providing housing, support and employability & skills services to people who are homeless or have other forms of social need. We manage around 1400 short-stay and long-stay homes in Plymouth, Exeter, Yeovil, Wiltshire, Dorset and Bournemouth-Christchurch-Poole with a strong ambition to provide more accommodation and services for those most in need.

    We are currently seeking to recruit several non-executive board members to replace colleagues retiring later this year. We are especially looking to attract candidates who have property and financial experience, coupled with a good understanding of how boards work.

    Are you passionate about working to end homelessness?
    Do you have strategic or senior level experience in development, building/construction or surveying in either the social or commercial property sectors?
    Are you a qualified accountant with senior level experience in a similar business or with strong transferable skills?
    Do you have the experience or ambition to chair a board committee or could you aspire to be Chair or Vice-Chair of the Board at some point in the future?
    If the answer to any of these questions is yes, and you want to contribute towards achieving our vision of Working Together to Build Better Lives, Better Homes and Better Communities, BCHA would love to hear from you!

    If you are interested in joining our board and help the organisation make a big difference to the lives of those we serve, please get in touch.

    We welcome applications from candidates in any of the localities where we work, especially those who live and work outside Dorset.

    Our Board seeks to be representative of all sections of society and we welcome applications from individuals to strengthen the diversity of its membership.

    Board membership is non-executive/unpaid although the role does carry legal responsibilities.
