Head of Governance & Risk

South Lakes Housing owns and manages around more than 3,000 homes in one of the most stunning parts of the UK. Our offices in Kendal sit on the edge of the Lake District National Park and just a few miles to the east you’ll find yourself in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It’s a fantastic place to live and work, that offers the ideal blend of quality of life and real professional challenge. The need for quality affordable homes has never been greater, with many working families unable to afford market homes, in an area of high demand.

As our Head of Governance and Risk you will provide leadership on governance, risk and assurance
policies and practices. In the role of Deputy Company Secretary, you will also act as the Data Protection Officer and coordinate health and safety action across the organisation.

It’s likely that you will hold an appropriate professional qualification– though you must also be able
to demonstrate the equivalent professional expertise through practical experience in your corporate
governance career to date.

Some early priorities for the successful candidate will be:

  • Working on the Governance Improvement Plan, including supporting the Board on compliance with the National Housing Federation Code of Governance 2020 and Code of Conduct 2022
  • Developing the Health and Safety Action Plan
  • Leading on the organisation insurance procurement
