Non-Executive Director

Please note - this job vacancy is now closed and we are no longer accepting applications

  • Closing date: 20 February 2019
  • Posted on: 15 January 2019
  • Contract: 3 year term
  • Hours: 0.5 - 1 days per month
  • Salary/remuneration: unpaid
  • Location: flexible

Shared Assets is at an interesting transition point and we are looking for 2-3 new volunteer non-executive directors to help guide the organisation through this time. 

In 2019, we are planning to convert to become a Community Interest Company (CIC), to reinforce our social enterprise and non-profit distributing status and open up further grant funding avenues. We are also embedding self-managing processes within our staff team, and are actively looking to distribute power throughout the organisation as much as possible.

The role of a Shared Assets non-executive director is very much not a command-and-control one. We value our non-executive board members as they provide valuable insight, strategic direction, and help keep the organisation honest, focussed and sustainable. The executive team provides the leadership, develops the strategy, and delivers the work.

Some of our current board members’ terms are coming to an end in 2019, and we would like to invite some more non-executive directors to join our team.

We are looking for people who, in particular:

  • Are interested in and passionate about our vision of making land work for everyone
  • Have some experience and insight to share that will help our business model
  • Are interested in organisational development

Take a look at the role description below, and do please get in touch, either with kate [at] or by filling in this form,  if you think you might be interested!
