Board Member, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership

Meetings are held in Boston and Grimsby

About Lincolnshire Housing Partnership

Lincolnshire Housing Partnership is a new organisation, which was formed as a result of the merger of Boston Mayflower and Shoreline Housing Partnership in April 2018. We are in early stages of continuing service provision whilst planning and delivering an integration plan to become a true single entity from the two merged legacy bodies. This will include ensuring both governance and operational delivery matters, business planning, financial internal controls and development of the risk and assurance framework for LHP.

With around 12,700 homes, over 26,000 customers and 350 employees, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership has a combined turnover of £52m per annum and is a substantial regional housing organisation, strongly connected with its communities and key stakeholders. We are a partner of choice and an influencer of policy within Lincolnshire as well as an employer of choice and contributor to the health of the regional economy.

Operating in four principal areas – Boston, Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham – we are committed to listening to tenants and customers in our local communities, ensuring that they are at the heart of the business. We are also determined to deliver accessible, easy to use, right first time, locally based services as well as added value services such as affordable warmth, training schemes and employment initiatives. We are strongly committed to our workforce, supporting and encouraging them to develop and learn; and working with our partners such as both local and county councils and the LEPs.

About the role

We are looking for a qualified finance-related professional to join our Board and become a member of our Audit and Risk Committee. Candidates must have experience of being part of a Board or working with a Board (not necessarily at non-executive level) in an organisation of a similar scale and complexity to LHP, whether in the commercial, public or third sectors. Direct or indirect knowledge and understanding of the housing sector and the regulatory framework within which it operates is essential as is experience of working effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, including customers, partners, and commissioners.
