Could you be an LHP Board Member? 16 October 2020 Two exciting opportunities to join our team

We have two exciting positions to join the Board of Lincolnshire Housing Partnership.

Are you passionate about being part of a Customer First organisation? Do you want to work Together with a range of different partners, stakeholders and customers from across Lincolnshire? Can you promote a culture of Listen, Act and Learn across a wide array of housing-related services?

If the answer to those questions is ‘yes’, then we are looking for two new additions to our Board and are seeking candidates with one of the following areas of expertise:

  • Accountancy, financial management and treasury management/risk management expertise, preferably in a social housing or related context. Non-executive experience or an understanding of governance processes and experience of reporting to a Board is essential
  • Strategic leadership experience of business transformation in a digital, customer-focused organisation. Non-executive experience is not required for this co-opted role which is an annual term (but likely to be required for several years)

For both roles, experience of working effectively with a wide range of stakeholders, including customers, partners and regulators is important. Local or regional knowledge would be an advantage but is not essential.

We are keen to broaden the diversity of our Board Membership to cultivate a broad range of attributes and perspectives that reflect real world demographics and help us understand and connect more effectively with our customers. We want to be seen as a champion of diversity and we believe that a diverse mix of voices leads to better discussions, decisions, and outcomes for everyone.

Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) was formed as a result of the merger of Boston Mayflower and Shoreline Housing Partnership in April 2018. We believe we have a great future. With over 12,500 homes, over 26,000 customers and 359 employees, Lincolnshire Housing Partnership has a turnover of £53m per annum and is a substantial regional housing organisation, strongly connected with its communities and key stakeholders. We are a partner of choice and an influencer of policy within greater Lincolnshire as well as an employer of choice and contributor to the health of the regional economy.

Currently operating across three principal areas - Boston, East Lindsey and North East Lincolnshire - we are committed to listening to tenants and customers in our local communities and ensuring that they are at the heart of the business. We are also determined to deliver accessible, easy to use, right first time, locally based services as well as added value services such as affordable warmth, training schemes and employment initiatives. We are strongly committed to our workforce, supporting and encouraging them to develop and learn; and working with our partners such as local and county councils and the LEPs.

Most Board and Committee meetings are currently being held virtually and where practicable future meetings are likely to be held virtually but strategy and training events (which are held twice/three times a year) will be face to face.

If you would like to be part of our future, please go to: where you will find the recruitment pack. If, after reading the recruitment pack, you would like an informal and confidential discussion about these opportunities, please contact one of our retained advisors at Altair Ltd:
