Peter Bedford Housing Association (PBHA) has been inspiring brighter futures in Hackney and Islington for almost 50 years. A pioneer of supported housing and work with ex-offenders, today we work with a wide range of excluded people across North East London to enable them to gain the confidence and skills they need to move on to greater independence. We achieve this through the provision of supported housing, alongside a wide range of vocational and community-based training opportunities and activities.

We are looking to recruitment 1 new member to join the Board as the Chair of the Finance Committee and work with the Chair, the Chief Executive and the Senior Management Team to increase the impact and quality of PBHA’s work with current and potential tenants and participants. The ideal candidate would bring a level of senior financial and audit experience, ideally in a sector relating to housing, whether the voluntary, public or private sectors.

Closing date for all submission is by 7pm on Friday 9th September 2016.
