Trent and Dove
Here at Trent & Dove we are committed to our mission “To provide homes and services that enable people and communities to thrive”. As a new Non-Executive Director, you’d be joining our organisation at an exciting time - the start of a new 5-year Strategic Plan cycle. We’re looking for someone who can contribute strong, recent financial, accountancy, treasury or investment management skills and experience to help the Board in this process and to shape and oversee the key strategic priorities for our organisation. All of our NED’s are a member of one of our Board Committees and, if appointed, you’d join the Board’s Audit & Risk Assurance Committee.
Trent & Dove strongly encourage applications from all sections of the community. We operate an inclusive and transparent recruitment and assessment process, underpinned by an organisational commitment to equality and diversity. We are particularly keen to hear from groups where Trent & Dove and the housing sector are currently under-represented at Board level (for example with respect to ethnicity, younger ages, disability, LGBT+, and those living in areas of low social mobility). Prior experience as a Board member - or an understanding of the housing sector, and the regulatory context within which we operate - would be useful but is not essential, as training and support can be provided.
Who we are:
Trent & Dove is a Registered Provider of Social Housing (a “Housing Association”). For the past 20 years, we’ve provided quality, affordable homes for rent, lease or shared ownership across East Staffordshire, North-west Leicestershire and South Derbyshire and currently have over 6,300 homes under management. We are a non-profit with social purpose objectives; the profit we make is reinvested back into our organisation to continuously improve our services for customers and to support the work of our community partners and stakeholders.
Alongside the housing and ancillary support services we provide, we also have an ambitious new build growth and regeneration programme which aims to deliver circa. 3% new growth p.a. Alongside our new build activities, we also have an active asset management and investment programme, which seeks to continuously improve the quality and efficiency of our stock to benefit our customers and ensure their homes are fit for the future.
Finally, we believe that an organisation is only ever as good as the people it works with – and we work with some great people! We have over 200 committed and passionate staff, involved residents and Board and Committee members and we have strong relationships with our Local Authority partners and the charities and community groups where we operate. We believe that housing is more than just bricks and mortar - and our mission and values are designed to support and create thriving communities that people are proud to be a part of.
