Non-Executive Director, Coastal Housing Group
£5,000 per annum
About Coastal Housing Group
Coastal is a not-for-profit company that develops homes and commercial premises for rental and sale. We’re based at offices on Swansea High Street and also at hub locations in Neath and Port Talbot town centres.
We were formed in 2008 through the merger of Swansea Housing Association and Dewi Sant Housing Association, so we’ve been providing homes to local people in and around the Swansea area since the 1970s.
We currently manage over 5,000 homes across Bridgend, Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot and Swansea. We aim to rent homes for less than what you’d expect to pay a private landlord for a similar property in the area.
In addition to renting homes, we develop properties for sale through our dedicated home sales company Pennant Homes. We always offer affordable home ownership options like Help to Buy Wales when we develop homes for sale.
We’re also growing as a commercial landlord, providing more and more commercial premises like offices, pubs, restaurants and shops.
At Coastal we think and act a bit differently. You can absolutely see and feel this but it can be kind of hard to put into words. It’s a balance between the belief that anything’s possible and the discipline of remaining constructive, relevant and valuable throughout everything we do.
Our approach doesn’t conveniently fit into an acronym or under a set of buzzwords. Instead we call it The Coastal Way and you can read more about it here.
About the Role
We’re currently recruiting Non-Executive Director (NED) positions at Coastal Housing Group.
We’re looking for people who share our values and can use their skills, knowledge and commercial acumen to make a real difference to the services we offer now and in the future.
If you’re an inspirational, progressive leader and a strategic thinker with a proven track record of insight and decision-making, ideally at Board level, we’d love to hear from you.
Commitment will be a minimum of 18 days per year including away days, training events or conferences, scheme visits and evening Board and Committee meetings.

Package for Non-Executive Directors
In Autumn 2019, Coastal took the decision to remunerate NED roles in order ensure we continue to draw upon the best knowledge and expertise available. NEDs are awarded £5,000 per annum.
In addition to fair remuneration, we offer ongoing training and development for NEDs just as we do for our dedicated staff. This includes an allocation of development time to use during our annual Learning at Work Week: a personalized, choice-based approach to learning and wellbeing that is unlike anything you will have experienced at other organisations.
You’ll also get exposure to life in a systems-thinking organisation and the chance to expand your knowledge of the ambitious, vibrant housing sector in Wales by attending relevant conferences and networking events.
Perhaps most importantly, you’ll join a team of amazing people working to make a real difference to people and communities in south Wales and be involved in shaping the regeneration of town and city centres in the region
