We are searching for talented people to join our Board.
Whether you already have experience as a Board Member or not, one thing is key – that you are passionate about helping create a better world and are committed to our mission of ‘Making Lives Better’ for the people of Wales.
We celebrate equality diversity and inclusion and believe our Board and Committees should represent the communities that we serve, through members with a diversity of backgrounds and lived experiences.
We equally encourage applications from those with experience in our sector and those who come from outside it. Regardless of your background, every new board member is supported with a tailored induction.
What you'll do
As a Board Member you will ensure we are well run and deliver socially beneficial outcomes for our customers, communities and colleagues.
You will bring a fresh perspective to discussions and shape decisions that are made.
You will learn about the services we provide, and the challenges faced by those we support. You will ensure the proper governance of our organisation so we can continue to make a difference to our communities in the years ahead.
Further details can be found in the recruitment pack and on our social media channels.
What you’ll need
You will need motivation and up to 2 days per month to carry out your duties. In return this role can be hugely rewarding and a great opportunity to learn and develop.
Previous experience working in a senior role and evidence of a people centric approach is essential, along with a desire to help us accelerate the transformation to a fairer society.
In line with our support of Tai Pawb's Deeds Not Words pledge we will be offering an interview to all applicants from under-represented groups provided they meet these essential criteria.
Whilst previous experience as a Board Member would be beneficial, it isn’t necessary. We provide a tailored induction to help you become confident in your new role addressing areas that may be new to you.
We are looking to strengthen the skills, knowledge and experience of our Board in the areas of housing, care and investment and development, but if your expertise falls outside these areas and you believe you have something you can bring, we would love to hear from you.
