Tenants and leaseholders in Lambeth are being urged to come forward to take a role in shaping the work of Lambeth Living – London’s largest Arms Length Management Organisation (ALMO).
Lambeth Living leaseholders from across the borough and Lambeth Living tenants living in Clapham, Stockwell & Vassal, and Norwood are being encouraged to represent their communities by becoming a director on the board of Lambeth Living.
The organisation manages 34,000 properties in the borough and is governed by a board of 16 directors, made up of elected tenants, leaseholder representatives, independent directors and Lambeth council nominees.
The successful applicants will serve a four year term as a Lambeth Living director, tasked with directing and controlling the company’s work.
Lambeth Living chairman, Keith Hill, said: “This is an exciting time to join the board. We have just embarked on a multi million pound stock investment project – the Lambeth Housing Standard. It is vital that tenants’ and leaseholders’ priorities are represented by champions on our board.
“Our directors contribute to the board through expertise learned firsthand from living in a home in the borough.
“They are then able to help determine the strategy and direction of Lambeth Living in the interests of residents”.
The position is voluntary although reasonable travel and out of pocket expenses (including child minding or care provision) are reimbursed and board members can also benefit from an opportunity to learn new skills and join training programmes. Board members are also expected to attend evening meetings and committee meetings.
