Are you interested in becoming a Resident Board Member?

Clarion Housing Group formed in 2016, following the merger between two of the country’s largest housing association's, Affinity Sutton and Circle Housing Group. With over 125,000 homes we will use our strength and scale to create opportunities that change peoples’ lives.

We believe in the highest standards of corporate governance and are looking for new resident members for the Board of the new Housing Association. An understanding of the social housing sector would be an advantage but of primary importance is the ability to lead change in a large scale organisation and analyse complex financial and stakeholder risks.

You will need to share the aims and values of the Clarion Group and be willing to give a commitment of both time and energy. The role will include attendance at Group events and training. The post is likely to require a commitment in the region of two to three days a month.
