About the Audit and Risk Committee
The Audit and Risk Committee plays a vital role in our Governance structure. With detailed oversight of Southway's activities, it provides assurance to our Parent Board that we are fulfilling our objectives, whilst maximising value for money and addressing any risks. This is particularly important as we seek to deliver the best possible service to our tenants in a challenging environment, particularly as we enter into what will be a vital year for Southway.
The role is an excellent opportunity for a senior professional to develop skills and experience in a non-executive role, whilst committing less time than a full Parent Board Member position would demand. We welcome applications from those working in the Social Housing sector, but we are also interested in hearing from you if you work in a complementary industry; Health, Finance or Property Compliance. Your most important quality will be a commitment to using your skills to improve the lives of the people who live in our homes and communities.
Southway is committed to diversity and inclusion. We aspire to a governance structure that reflects our tenants and the wider communities in which we operate. We encourage people from all backgrounds and experiences to apply for roles in our governance structure and welcome a diverse range of people. We value difference of thought as we know this enhances our organisation. We particularly, though not exclusively, welcome applications from disabled people, people who identify as women, people who identify as LGBT+, and BIPOC.
