Audit Committee Chair, Alpha Housing

Our client, Alpha Housing, is a highly respected provider of social homes, mainly for older people. The organisation is renowned for its personalised and tenant-focused service and, according to recent independent research, achieves tenant satisfaction levels amongst the highest in Northern Ireland.

Alpha Housing currently has almost 1,000 homes and a turnover of £6M and has embarked on an ambitious growth phase. As well as helping set new standards in housing for older people, Alpha Housing is building homes for a range of people and partnering to create mixed tenure communities. This board leadership role, therefore, comes at a pivotal point in Alpha Housing’s development with exciting scope for the housing association to lead and innovate.

As part of the natural renewal process, Alpha is seeking to appoint a new Audit Committee Chair. This is a pivotal role that provides assurance to the Board and ensures that all items requiring the Audit Committee’s approval are diligently reviewed.

The role requires an experienced senior manager/board director with a good understanding of Board governance and a detailed financial and risk management understanding.

This role might appeal to experienced candidates who are seeking to complement their executive management experience with a Board governance role and previous experience as a non-executive in an audit-related capacity role would be considered an advantage.
