  1. Hi I have only just seen your advert but having just served on Unity HA board and completed in excess of 3 terms I am keen to serve on another Board

    IAs well as being a board member I have also worked in housing for over 20 years in both RSL and a Local Authority

    I have also worked both in housing management and development sectors of housing and am currently employed in a special needs housing association

    Being from a minority ethnic background I have a strong commitment to the black housing movement and would welcome the opportunity to serve on your Board

    I appreciate I have missed the deadline for applications but if you keep mybdetails on file maybe I could be considered in the future
