At Karbon, we build, manage and look after homes for people across the North. And then we go further, we want to build better lives for our customers, not just better homes. Everything we do is for their security, health and happiness under their own roofs, in their communities and out there in the wider world.

Since our formation in 2017, we’ve been focused on delivering on our three strategic aims – to provide as many good quality homes as we can; to deliver excellent service to our customers; and to shape strong, sustainable places for our communities.

Our footprint covers the North East of England and Yorkshire, with almost 30,000 homes across diverse communities, all facing different opportunities and challenges.

We are looking for a Chair of the Group Board with a committed, goal focussed approach, who’ll set clear priorities, lead by example and empower others. This is a high profile and influential leadership role that will set and monitor the strategic direction of the organisation.

You will have recent experience at a senior level in:

  • Understanding best practice governance and compliance combined with the relevant systems, processes and relationships required to deliver excellent governance
  • Establishing an environment of trust and mutual respect in which all parties can work together to deliver the social purpose of an organisation

You don’t need to come from the housing sector but you do need to be in tune with our purpose, ambitions and values.

Keen to find out more? We are keen to talk to talented people from all sectors and previous experience of the profit for purpose or housing sector is not necessary.
