Board Member Wanted

Friday, February 10, 2017

£2,500 remuneration per year

Arhag is a Housing Association that has embraced the mission to provide the best housing service to its tenants while developing the potential of migrants and refugees in London.

It aims to become a ‘go to’ organisation for issues facing all migrants in London, putting a range of non-housing services at the heart of its offering. Arhag has started a 10-year transformation to become a key service provider, thought leader, and enabler for the diverse communities across the capital.

What is unique about Arhag is that it has departed from the traditional housing association model, and put non-housing services at the centre of its mainstream business, not as add-ons, and provides those services to non-tenants across London.

Key to Arhag’s success is being able to forge and fund a series of partnerships with related specialist providers to offer a service from arrival to full integration, helping migrants navigate issues like housing, but then finding jobs and setting-up businesses.

With nearly 1,000 properties, Arhag is one of the UK’s biggest BME housing associations but was founded as a campaigning organisation for migrants and refugees. Founded in 1979 it currently owns and manages 937 homes in inner and outer London.  Arhag is recognised as an ambitious and high performing housing association, delivering good quality services to our residents and actively growing the business.

We have a highly skilled and experienced Board, who meet quarterly at our London (Kentish Town) head office. To complement the Board’s skill set, we are now seeking to recruit a talented individual with experience in housing, housing development and strategic understanding.

To apply please send your CV and a covering letter to Carol Lawrence at clawrence@arhag.co.uk or by post to Arhag Housing Association, Unit B, Brancker House, 54-74 Holmes Road, London NW5 3AQ.

For an informal discussion, please contact our Chief Executive, Mr Cedric Boston on 020 7424 7370.

We look forward to hearing from you.
