    The Housing Trust is looking for a new Chair to implement the next phase of its strategy aimed at scaling up housing outcomes for lower income households in the District.Key attributes of the successful candidate will include:
    • Experience and knowledge at local and national Government level
    • Extensive governance experience in theory and practice
    • Commercial acumen, along with excellent communication & PR skills
    • The time to allow on average up to one day per week to the role

    The Trust has assisted over 160 households since it began through a number of programmes, and now operates with Trust gross funds in excess of $27m. But the evidence of housing stress is also growing and the Trust has set the bold goal of assisting 1000 households within the next 10 years. After 2 very successful years, our current Chair is leaving the District.

    We are looking for a professionally equipped person in our community, who is capable and experienced in the governance role and who understands that good housing outcomes are the cornerstone of a strong community.
