Board recruitment

With a legacy of over 50 years, we are a well-regarded landlord determined to make an impact in the wider community and have a passionate belief in the delivery of social capital.

With a strong commitment to sustainability and zero carbon, we are keen to attract passionate individuals who can help shape our sector-leading approach on this issue.

However, we also seek wider skills such as finance and technology, coupled with an insight to the housing environment across the London region. You may be an experienced leader, or this may be your first board position, but your passion for providing first-class services to residents will also be an important offer.

In return BHA can offer a rewarding and unique opportunity to make a real contribution to our future and a satisfying, meaningful role in the social housing sector.

The closing date is Friday 22nd October 2021, with interviews taking on Thursday 11th November 2021.
