A mutually beneficial opportunity to join our Board

Merthyr Valleys Homes is a forward-thinking housing association that owns and manages over 4,100 properties in Merthyr Tydfil.

In 2016, we became the first tenant and staff-owned mutual housing organisation in Wales. Our tenant and employee members have control over the running and future direction of the organisation and help us to continue to improve our services. Our elected group of members, Democratic Body, work closely with our Board and Executive Leadership Team to meet the growing needs and aspirations of our tenants, our employees and our local communities. Our key strength lies in working together.

We are looking for three outstanding new Board Members who will use their skills and expertise to help us deliver our plans. Following our recent skills audit we know that we would like to attract people with Finance & Investment or Property & Development skills, with experience of working with organisations that that focus on social value and enterprise for these posts, but we encourage applications from people with other skills too.

In return, you will gain unique experience of working as a Non-Executive Director with a dynamic Board in a mutual governance structure, alongside a passionate Democratic Body and an innovative and dedicated Executive Leadership Team.BOARD RECRUITMENT ASTRONAUT

We are striving to develop a more diverse organisation and we are working hard to address this. We were awarded the Tai Pawb “Quality in Equality and Diversity” accreditation in 2019, but we know that we still have work to do in order to truly reflect our communities in Merthyr and across Wales. Whilst we welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, we particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and minority ethnic candidates for these vacancies both to add to our skills set as a Board and to increase our diversity of thought and lived experience.

If you share our mutual values and our passion for making a difference in our communities, we want to hear from you!
