Chair - Grand Union Housing Group, Bedfordshire


Grand Union are seeking a Chair who has prior governance experience, a track record of working commercially within a strong social values framework and a colleague who places a high premium on building relationships with others.

Grand Union's vision and values should resonate strongly with their new Chair. They are a successful organisation that operates with purpose. Their exceptional growth over the last decade reflects their unstinting commitment to continue to tackle the shortage of affordable housing options across the region. But at Grand Union they know that it takes much more to ensure that communities can thrive and succeed. So their investment in neighbourhoods and people continues at pace. You will be working with exceptional people who bring experience, intelligence and creativity to strategic decision making, by setting direction, ensuring compliance and raising standards. With £645m worth of assets and a financial turnover of £74m, they make important risk-based decisions. As such they are seeking a Chair who has prior governance experience, a track record of working commercially within a strong social values framework and a colleague who places a high premium on building relationships with others.

This is a fantastic opportunity to lead a dynamic organisation that can take pride in its legacy and feel confident about its ambitious future. They believe that providing good, affordable, secure and safe homes in decent neighbourhoods shapes people’s lives positively. What they do matters – and if it matters to you too, we would love to hear from you.
