Welcome

Thank you for your consideration of a non-executive position at Muir Group.

We are an ambitious organisation that puts residents at the heart of everything we do, looking to continually improve the quality of their homes, the services we offer and the neighbourhoods in which they live.

We are looking to appoint our next Muir Group Chair and a Co-optee for our Group Audit and Risk Committee.

It is an interesting time to join the Board as we are refreshing our corporate strategy and are increasing our development capacity. We are also transforming our services, increasing the use of digital technology, and building on our business assurance.

We are looking for dynamic individuals who are interested in helping to lead and govern Muir Group and work with us to deliver successful outcomes for our customers, staff and other stakeholders.

We own and manage more than 5,500 homes across the country, in over 30 local authority areas, and provide a diverse range of housing solutions and associated services to meet the needs of existing and potential customers.

We have offices in Chester, Blackpool, Burnley and Huntingdon and employ over 130 dedicated people.  We have achieved the coveted Investors In People Gold Award.  Our business includes a wholly owned maintenance subsidiary, Muir Property Solutions Ltd, based in Warrington.

Governance At Muir

The Board's role is to set the strategic direction of Muir Group, monitoring its progress towards those objectives and ensuring that Muir Group is performing as agreed. Board members are individually and collectively responsible for pursuing Muir Group’s best interest.

At Muir Group our Governance Framework describes the responsibilities of the board, board members and the executive management team in respect of the overall governance and strategic management of the organisation.  The principal aim of our governance framework is to ensure clarity and provide guidance and ensure that decision making routes and powers are clear.

Muir Group’s National Resident Group was formed in 2018. It is designed to help residents have a greater say in how Muir operates, helping to provide governance while also helping to drive service improvement and shape the Association's future.

Group members live across all of Muir's four regions – North West, Eastern England, Cheshire East and Warrington, Cheshire West and Chester. They attend regular meetings throughout the year and work with the Muir Board to achieve positive outcomes.

The Group Board currently comprises nine members, and there is an expectation that all members will also join one of the two board committees, depending on skills and experience.  Muir Property Solutions Limited is governed by a separate Board, membership of which overlaps with Group Board.

The Group Chair Designate will be a member of the Group HR & Governance Committee and the independent co-optee will only be a member of the Group Audit & Risk Committee.
