YMCA enables people to develop their full potential in body, mind and spirit. Inspired by, and faithful to Christian values, we create supportive and energising communities that are open to all, where young people can truly belong, contribute and thrive. We are proud of our diversity and work with all ages, faiths and backgrounds, as part of a global network of 14,000 separate YMCAs, celebrating 175 years of life-changing work. One YMCA has supported people across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire for more than 135 years and we reach 1000's of people each day through a range of crucial services across multiple communities. Our programmes and services tackle the issues facing local people and ensure that there are opportunities for young people throughout our work, from apprentices to work experience and childcare to youthwork. In 2019/20 we helped over 135,727 local people to belong, contribute and thrive.
It's an exciting time to join One YMCA, with significant growth already achieved, we are determined to do more and better. With the recent launch of a bold new five-year-strategy, we aim to double our impact by 2025. As part of our desire to maximise efficiency and ensure suitable project oversight, the charity has established a separate development company as part of our Group to manage an ambitious £20 million+ programme of capital development to enhance some of its current buildings and build up to 200 new units over the next five years. We are committed to high standards of governance and are now looking to recruit two new roles: a Chair of the Property Development Committee (and One YMCA Trustee) and an Independent Director for the board of our development company.
Both roles are voluntary positions and will be responsible for ensuring that the Charity and Development Company pursue their stated purposes with a focus on delivering excellent capital developments on time, within budget and to an agreed standard. With a passion for young people and the housing sector, you will be committed to the mission and values of the organisation. Whilst bringing strategic oversight and a creative mindset you will have extensive experience of major housing construction works. Ideally, you will have gained this experience from the perspective of a non-profit procuring services from a commercial partner, but we are happy to discuss the opportunity with candidates who have relevant experience in the commercial sector. The Chair of the Property Development Committee will also be a One YMCA Trustee and will bring board membership and chairing experience.
These are voluntary positions but expenses will be reimbursed.
If you would like further information about either one of these roles, please get in touch with our retained Consultants at TPP Recruitment: Brigitte Stundner or Matt Adams on 0207 198 6060. To request an information pack, please email Executive@tpp.co.uk.
The closing date for applications is 9am Thursday 30th September 2021.
