At A2Dominion Housing we build new homes and own or manage over 38,000 properties across London and southern England, including affordable, private and social rented homes, studentkey worker and temporary accommodation, as well as supported housing and homes for older people.  We also build award-winning  sustainable homes for sale and shared ownership through our FABRICA by A2Dominion brand. We are a member of the G15, the group of London's largest housing associations.

Our vision is clear, we are here to improve people's lives by providing high quality homes and services. Whilst we take a commercial approach to housebuilding, we reinvest all of our profits into building more new homes at social rents, and supporting the communities where we work. We are proud of our commitment to our customers and in most cases we stay on as landlord, maintaining a long-term relationship with residents.

We are looking for a new Chair of the Board’s Audit, Risk and Assurance Committee with knowledge of directing a complex, regulated business such as ours, and regardless of your sector background, someone who shares our passion for delivering first class customer outcomes. Ideally an experienced Chair, you’ll bring strategic leadership skills from fast-paced cultures, which have embraced significant change and transformation.  You will also have the emotional intelligence required to inspire a high-performing Committee and offer confidence to the Board. Team focused, with considerable energy, and a passion for sustainable growth, you’ll strongly identify with our vision and priorities, and enable us to collectively achieve our objectives to provide customer led services and invest in homes and communities.

Alongside providing strong organisational governance and ensuring our long-term viability, you will represent A2Dominion at the highest levels and partner with a broad range of key stakeholders and decision makers.
