Board Members


We are looking for two new board members

Why are we looking?
United Communities and Solon South West are actively working on a proposed merger to create an ambitious new housing association for Bristol and surrounding areas. This proposal will be shaped by our residents, who we are consulting during the summer.

We believe we can achieve more by working together than we can as separate organisations. The new organisation would become Bristol's largest housing association and would play a vital role in driving forward the agenda for affordable housing and stronger communities in the city.

The Board has a key role in overseeing the organisation and ensuring that it meets its objectives and we have identified a few areas where we want a different view.

What are we looking for?
We are looking for 2 people to join the Board from October 2020 to complete a team that is committed to improving the chances of the people of Bristol through cohesive communities and safe homes.

We are particularly looking for people with a combination of:
  • Experience of living in social housing;
  • Customer service and engagement; and/or
  • Community involvement
All board members must be able to demonstrate a commitment to our values and support our vision.

We seek to be diverse and representative of the communities that we serve and would encourage applications from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences. We particularly welcome applications from BAME applicants who are currently underrepresentated on our Board.

Attitude and values are as important as technical skills, so if you believe that you are not the sort of person that would normally be on the Board of a housing association, you might be just the person we are looking for -- please get in touch.
