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.
