July 2017 - Chair position

Our outgoing chair, Paul Scholey, is approaching the end of his maximum six year term so we are now seeking his successor.

Our new chair will play a crucial role in Dwell’s development and growth. You’ll lead our planning, the ongoing development of the board and help ensure we have a fit-for-purpose financial strategy to support Dwell’s services and our continued success.

You will have a strong grasp of best practice in governance, a track record as a board member or previous chairing experience, and a commitment to community housing.

You’ll be a sound strategic thinker, a strong people person and great team player and be business savvy with a social heart.

The responsibilites and qualities of the chair, and other board members, are listed in the chair role profile document (PDF, 404kb).

Dwell has a minimum of eight board meetings each year including two strategy and planning half days. The expected time commitment from the chair is about 10 hours each month, including meetings.

There is a lot of information about our great organisation on this website including biographies of our people, information about Dwell and what we do, and our 2015-2016 annual report.
