Subject to satisfaction of the specific qualification criteria, this year, we are particularly looking for candidates who have specific knowledge and understanding of financial accounting, risk management and internal control, the property industry and property portfolio management and/or knowledge of funeral services, as these skills would enhance our Board further. That said, we would be interested to hear from any member with alternative skills and financial and business acumen who has an interest in standing for election to the Board.
The Board determines the vision and strategies of Southern Co-op and ensures that policies and organisational structures are in place to deliver the long term objectives. The Board also ensures that Southern Co-op’s actions comply with its constitutional rules, relevant laws and regulations. Members of the Leadership Team make regular presentations to the Board at key stages throughout the year in order that progress against strategic plans can be monitored.
More details about the type of people we need and the specific qualification criteria which you must meet are set out in our Board Composition Charter.
