Board Members, Shepherds Bush Housing Group


£4,000 plus reasonable expenses

About Shepherds Bush Housing Group

Shepherds Bush Housing Association (SBHA) was established in Shepherds Bush in the 1960s, following the campaigning inspired by Cathy Come Home (1966). The organisation has now grown into Shepherds Bush Housing Group (SBHG) and manages approximately 5,000 homes, primarily in the London Boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea, and Hounslow. The Group comprises:

  • Shepherds Bush Housing Association – a charitable registered social landlord
  • Staying First – a charity supporting individuals to stay in their homes, wholly controlled by SBHA
  • SBH Developments – a subsidiary of SBHA used for private and commercial property sale development; it is currently inactive

SBHG’s mission is social heart, business head, local impact:

  • Social heart: “Our way of working builds and strengthens communities”
  • Business head: “Our way of working means we make a lasting return on investment”
  • Local impact: “Our way of working responds to what’s needed locally”

This mission is supported by the organisation’s values: Accountable, Innovative, Caring, Community Focused.

About the role

Due to upcoming retirements, SBHG is looking to appoint two new Board Members to ensure that SBHG is governed economically, efficiently, effectively and complies with the requirements of legislation, the Regulator of Social Housing and best practice.

The Group is looking for individuals with experience of managing a multi-disciplinary customer-focused service, or of leading and delivering large scale and complex digital and culture-based transformation programmes. Current or previous non-executive experience is essential, but applications from those with non-housing backgrounds are welcomed.
