Board renewal process

Board renewal process

The Result

Clarendon generated significant interest from a wide range of relevant and high calibre candidates. Whilst Board and Committee member roles in Choice are voluntary, individuals require a breadth of experience and expertise and must be prepared to commit significant time and focus to fulfil their statutory and fiduciary responsibilities. Such was the quality of the field generated, the Board approved the appointment of more members than originally targeted.

“The Choice Board was delighted with both the process adopted by Clarendon to find new voluntary members, and ultimately the high quality of candidates interested in supporting good governance and ambitious growth within our Housing Association”

Michael McDonnell, Group Chief Executive

The Brief

As a ‘profit for purpose’ Registered Housing Association, Choice has a range of key stakeholders encompassing tenants, government regulators, political representatives and the wider community. Whilst the client was keen to fill specific gaps in Committees requiring technical skills, really good members require excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to bridge strategic and operational issues. The organisation requires effective leadership to be successful at each of Board, Committee and Senior Management levels.

The Process

Clarendon developed a really great understanding of the role and qualities of the Non-Executive Director. They also ‘get’ the social enterprise model and can empathise with our desire to balance social values with sound commercial acumen. The Clarendon team took the time and care to assess the DNA of Choice and then did a fantastic job at promoting our ambitious plans forward to prospective candidates. The service offered from start to finish was excellent and we look forward to welcoming the new members into Choice in Spring 2018.
