Directors wanted for council's hire service
7:54am Wednesday 18th December 2013 in Business news
ONE of City of York Council’s first social enterprise “spin-offs” is looking to recruit two non-executive directors to join its ranks when it is officially formed in the New Year.
The council says it has given the go-ahead for its community equipment loan store and telecare service to create a mutual organisation from April next year which will be majority staff-owned, with the authority continuing to have part ownership.
A spokeswoman said the team already supported more than 3,000 vulnerable people and was keen to support many more.
She said the company would have a board of directors including two non-executive director posts. Anyone appointed would need expertise in areas such as commercial finance and marketing and communications. The closing date is January 3.
