Non-Executive Director - Swansea Building Society
Swansea Building Society was established in 1923 as an independent mutual organisation owned by its members. It operates from branches in Carmarthen, Cowbridge, Mumbles and a head office in Swansea. It has a Board consisting of a Chairman and five further Non-Executive Directors. It has total assets of £275m and has gone through a period of sustained, controlled growth over the last 10 years. Its principal activity is the provision of housing finance funded mainly by members’ savings.
The Society is seeking to recruit a new Non-Executive Director to join the Board in November 2018.
The Board meets monthly, in Swansea. A time commitment of a minimum of 2/3 days per month is required, and remuneration will be appropriate for the role. A local resident would understand the needs of members in a concentrated geographic area and this may assist in the understanding and fulfilling of the responsibilities of this role.
The preference is for a qualified Chartered Surveyor with experience in the local area.
Applications are invited from a quick thinking, industrious individual who possesses:
- The ability to make decisions on broad strategic and policy matters
- Experience of contributing to Board and committee meetings at a senior level
- Expertise in one or more of the following:
- Mutual Building Societies
- consumer interests
- corporate governance
- harnessing and motivating others
- modern business techniques
Closing date: 30 September 2018
