This well managed and financially sound Mutual has enjoyed sustained growth over the last twelve years.  It is poised for yet further growth, has a very positive reputation with the Regulator and, as one would expect from a Mutual, an outstanding reputation with its member base.

The Chairman is now seeking an additional Non-Executive Director, from within the financial services sector, to strengthen the Board. The aim of the appointment is to broaden the Board’s strategic skills base.  The role will require an individual who can add value to all aspects of the business and is likely to have a specific understanding of finance, audit and insurance.

Candidates should be seasoned financial services professionals; probably a qualified accountant, who has gained experience at Board level, particularly with regard to either Mutuality or General Insurance.  Just as important as your technical skills will be your desire to work within a progressive and growing Mutual where values are real rather than merely a marketing concept.  In exchange for your talents and experience, this Mutual offers an outstanding opportunity to use your skills to make a real difference.

It is also important that you are agile within a change environment and a well-organised, systems-focused, practical problem-solver. Finally, your attention to detail, professional integrity, confidentiality and discretion will be paramount.
