Hundred Houses Society (HHS) is a charitable housing association with a long history of providing affordable housing in and around Cambridge. Founded in 1933, we are proud to be an independent, local organisation. We completed our first development of 100 homes in 1935, and since then we have continued to grow and now own and manage around 1,500 homes.
We are a small, but ambitious housing association, that is passionate about providing safe affordable homes for our customers. We are committed to working in partnership with our residents to ensure we deliver better customer service and focus on services which are important to them.
It is an exciting time to join HHS as we have updated our governance structure. Our Board is supported by three committees: Audit & Risk Committee, Remuneration Committee and Customer Experience Group. In addition, the Finance Working Group and the Investment and Growth Working Group also support the Board.
The Independent Committee Member role on the Audit & Risk Committee would be ideal for an individual with working knowledge at a senior level of internal and external audit, strategic management of risk and financial reporting.
For the Remuneration Committee, we are looking for an Independent Committee Member with extensive senior level experience in recruitment, performance management, appraisal, and succession.
It is not essential that applicants have a social housing background or have been a Committee Member of a housing organisation before, but applicants should have a commitment to customer service, a knowledge of what makes for good governance, and excellent communication and leadership skills.
We are looking for candidates who are passionate about making a difference to the people and communities we serve. We particularly encourage applications from those living and working in the Cambridge area and those with diverse backgrounds or experience.
If you are interested in any of our roles, we would love to hear from you. Please download the pack for further details on how to apply and how to contact us.
