Dwell Housing Trust chair recruitment

Jul 24, 2017 | News

Dwell Housing Trust provides affordable, quality housing for people in need or on a low income. We are more than a landlord – we ensure our tenants have access to the support they need and want to live well and do well.

We believe that affordable, stable and healthy housing is a fundamental right, and that appropriate housing has long-lasting benefits for the people living within those households and the wider community.

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.

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. This position is unpaid.

For further information on Dwell and the role please visit www.dwell.org.nz.

If you would like to speak with someone about Dwell and the role of chair you are welcome to contact Alison Cadman, Chief Executive on alison@dwell.org.nz to arrange a time.

Applications close on Monday 21 August 2017″
