Non-Executive Director - Tipton & Coseley Building Society
- Directors Fee: £29,000
- Tipton, West Midlands
The Tipton & Coseley (‘The Society’) is a successful, contemporary independent Building Society founded in 1901 in the offices of a local solicitor. They have progressed considerably since then and are now situated in modern purpose built headquarters in the heart of the West Midlands with assets of over £370m, circa 85 employees based out of four primary locations (Tipton, Coseley, Bilston and Sedgley), and some 40,000 members which transact primarily through their branches.
The Society’s strategy of keeping things simple and sticking to its core values stands up well and continues to appeal to existing and new members. Their principal objective is to provide members with a safe and secure home for their savings, and to help people buy their own home through the provision of residential mortgages. The Society continues to invest in its long-term growth and prosperity both in terms of resource and through the implementation of the Society’s digital strategy. The financial services market place is undergoing significant challenge and change from technological developments, with the digital world very much a part of modern life. The Society’s digital strategy is a long-term vision to ensure that they can continue to meet the needs of customers by providing a greater choice in how they do business with the Society.
As part of a planned succession of the Board, the Society wishes to recruit a Non-Executive Director whose contribution will help shape the Society’s Digital Strategy further in regards to how it continues to respond strategically to technological developments. The successful candidate will have significant experience in identifying any potential risks associated with technology, helping to prioritise new initiatives and applications, particularly mobile technology, knowing how to link these to customer needs whilst appraising security controls and continuity plans around the potential threats e.g. cyber. Candidates may come from a variety of backgrounds including Big4 consultancy, telecoms, FS, outsourcing and IT suppliers.
Upon joining, you will be invited to become a Member of the Risk Committee, with the potential to take on a Chair role of a Committee in the future.
