Lampton Group
£25,000 p/a for 4-5 days per month
The Lampton Group of companies are owned by the London Borough of Hounslow and, therefore, by the residents of Hounslow. The Lampton Group operates commercially but with a public service ethos – following the principles of social value, community wealth building, equality, social justice and environmental sustainability. The Lampton Group measure its success both commercially and by the positive outcomes it delivers for the people of Hounslow.
The Role

After a very successful tenure, our current Chair, Gill Steward, is about to return to a full-time senior role in local government.  Gill has overseen the recruitment of several new NEDs as well as a restructure, which has created three ‘arms’ for the organisation:  Lampton Community Services, Lampton Leisure and Lampton Investment and Development.  

We are therefore seeking a new Chair who can build upon Gill’s great work and support our further growth and development.  You will have a good understanding of community facing services, ideally within a local government context, but more importantly you will be a collaborative and innovative leader, with a commercial focus and the ability to build excellent relationships with a range of stakeholders.  You will also need to be an experienced NED or Chair, with a good working knowledge of the principles and structures of an LATC or arm’s length body.
