Our client, a well-respected and leading mutual society seeks a Non-Executive Director to help strengthen an established and well-respected Board.
Bringing an independent perspective, you will constructively challenge and test proposals for strategic direction; exercise due-diligence and control over decision making and will scrutinise the performance of the Executive team, holding them to account as appropriate.
It is expected that the appointed Non-Executive Director will succeed the current Chair of Audit during 2021 and at this time, the role will expand to provide oversight of all accounting, financial reporting and internal controls.
You will already be sitting as a senior individual with experience of internal auditing and with in-depth knowledge of the principles and practice of good corporate governance. Individuals who have previously held a post as a Chair of Audit; who are operating already as a Non-Executive Director; or who are seeking their first Non-Executive Director appointment will be considered.
Experience of working within a regulated financial services firm is, however, essential and potential applicants must also be qualified chartered accountants or equivalent.
