As one of the UK’s only resident-led housing associations, we're commited to ensuring that our residents have the biggest voice at the table.

While tenants and leaseholders can get involved at all levels – from volunteering at our Job Club to scrutinising how we’re performing as your landlord – we’re always looking for the next generation of resident Board members.

We have an opportunity for a Phoenix tenant to join our resident-led Board. We also have new opportunities for a Phoenix tenant to join the Board of our Phoenix Repairs Service and a Phoenix leaseholder to join the Board of Home Makers, our private lettings service. 

Previous experience is not required for any of the three positions. Successful applicants will enjoy the support of your fellow Board members and Phoenix staff in getting to grips with what is involved and the role. What matters is enthusiasm for our resident-led model and a desire to help build a better community and deliver the best possible services for our residents and customers. Resident shareholders will elect the new tenant Board Member at our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 15 September 2020. 

Tenant Board Member - Phoenix Community Housing

Tenants and leaseholders, elected by residents, are the largest group on our Board. As a tenant Board member, you will play an important role in overseeing how Phoenix is run, deciding how we spend our money, and setting our plans for the future.

Information about becoming a Board member, what the role involves, and what you can expect in return can be found on the Board pages of our website

We will also be holding a virtual information session for residents interested in finding out more about becoming a Board Member on Tuesday 21 July. 

Our Board election regulations are available online

Applications for the Tenant Board Member vacancy closed at midday on Friday 24 July 2020.
