A commercial business with a social heart, our dynamic approach has made us one of the region’s leading providers of affordable homes for rent and shared ownership sales.

Responding to change with agility and innovation, we’ll continue to grow our business in today’s fast-paced and unpredictable operating environment while focusing on the people that make our communities great.

With a development programme set to deliver more than 2,500 homes over five years, we’re committed to building quality, affordable homes that people want to live in throughout the east of England and Home Counties. We’re also committed to providing excellent housing and landlord services to all our residents in our existing homes.

Key Strategic Skills Requirements

We are seeking a new Board member to join our experienced Board and highly skilled executives. We are looking for someone who shares our values and can bring:

The minimum requirement will be an average one day per month to attend meetings, mostly held remotely via MS Teams, with attendance at our Head Office around 3-4 times a year.

There would also be a required commitment to CPD through conferences, training and workshops.

Cross Keys Homes believe having a diverse Board is vital to our ongoing success and we particularly welcome applications from under-represented groups.

First interview (via MS Teams): Monday 15 and Wednesday 17 April 2024
