NMBS Non-Exec Chair

Published:  10 January, 2018

The society is looking to replace the current non-executive Chair who will soon have completed his full term of office.

NMBS is a buying society for independent Builders, Plumbers, Hardware and Timber Merchants in the UK. The primary aim of NMBS is “to enable its 1000+ members to get the best possible terms from suppliers by offering them a very cost-effective route to the Independent market place.”

It is envisaged that any future Chair will help co-ordinate and add valuable input into the strategic planning process in conjunction with the managing director and executive management team and management board.

The challenges NMBS and the industry are facing require a Chair with independence of mind, significant and broad business skills and experience, to lead and help add to the strategic direction of the business, plus the ability to provide support and guidance to the Managing Director and his fellow directors and team.

Ideally the candidate would have some knowledge of the construction industry or distribution/trade orientated business and a good understanding of Finance and IT.

The position will be competitively remunerated on the basis of a commitment to 2 days per month on NMBS business to include bi-monthly attendance at the Management Board Meetings and AGM.

Please respond in writing marked “Private & Confidential” enclosing with a CV and brief statement of “Why you feel you could make a difference” to: Mr Chris Hayward – Managing Director, NMBS Ltd, 10 Merus Court, Meridian Business Park, Leicester LE19 1RJ
