The housing association is looking to recruit a new member to the Board who is either a Plus Dane tenant or customer to help build a strong organisation that can embrace the challenges and opportunities ahead that face the social housing sector.

As part of this work, this vacancy has been reserved for a Board member who is a tenant or customer. 

Plus Dane has a strong, active and supportive Board and with an ambitious business plan with four core objectives based around developing people, improving products and services, financial resilience and growth/investment. The purpose of the Plus Dane Board is to determine the strategic direction and policies of the organisation and to scrutinise and control its work in an effective way, holding its senior staff to account. 

Plus Dane is looking for someone with a range of skills and experience including; the ability to influence decision making; experience of working as part of a team; the ability to develop positive relationships with a wide variety of stakeholders; and with community and/or neighbourhood involvement experience, either in a paid or voluntary capacity. 

All Board members receive training and support to enable them to achieve their full potential on the Board. They are expected to dedicate 2-3 days per month and the post has a remuneration package of £5,000 per annum.
