Job Description

Salix Homes owns and manages around 8,500 homes across Salford in Manchester. Approximately one in ten people in the area live in one of our homes - so we are an integral element of the local community, and ideally positioned to make a real difference to people’s lives. We work hard to understand the things that matter most to our customers and design our services around their needs. We’re rethinking housing to harness the potential of new and emerging digital technology that will revolutionise how we engage with our customers and respond to their needs.

Looking forward, we continue to anticipate and adapt to a fast changing agenda, with an emphasis on quality of service, safety of our homes, developing new homes and promoting Salix Homes as a great place to work. To support these ambitions we now wish to appoint a number of new Board Members who want to invest their expertise and experience on behalf of others. As part of a Board with a diverse range of backgrounds and specialisms you’ll help to scrutinise and develop our organisation’s strategic planning, ensuring rigorous professional challenge and accountability supports better outcomes for our customers. 

Commercial and entrepreneurial experience will be of particular value, and we are also keen to hear from people who understand how to achieve excellent customer services and innovative solutions to housing. You should bring an inquisitive mind and a collaborative style that will enable you to ask the right questions to get the best from others. It’s important that you can model our organisational values and that you share our absolute commitment to delivering great customer service. In return you will have the opportunity to make a valuable strategic contribution, working across a wide range of issues, that will help to diversify and enhance your own professional frame of reference.

Closing date: 13th January.
