EPIC is a registered charity which provides good quality housing for people on low incomes. We are located in the Bentilee area of Stoke-on-Trent and we own over 1,000 properties, the majority of which are one and two bedroomed flats. 

Our vision is to empower our people, provide excellent services and offer further housing choices through acquisitions and innovative tenure offerings. Our mission for 2015/16 is to provide excellent housing at below market rents for people on low incomes. 

We are looking for a Non-Executive Director with Board level experience preferred to help us deliver this vision.

We also offer a full induction programme to those who are new to Board Membership or Social Housing. There are generally 6 Board Meetings per year, usually held at 5.30pm and lasting around 2 hours each. In addition, we hold a Board Member Strategy Event each year, usually in December.
