NFoPP is recruiting for a new position of Executive Chair of the Board.
An advert which appeared in yesterday’s Sunday Telegraph says that remuneration for the role – which will require a commitment of one or two days a month – will be by negotiation.
An executive chair is a relatively unusual role – although Google has one – since most chairs are non-executive with little involvement in the day-to-day affairs of the organisation. Non-executive chairmen of private companies can command four-figure sums per day.
However, NFoPP is clearly looking for someone of top-notch calibre who will get closely involved in its running.
The display advert mentions the NAEA, ARLA, NAVA, ICBA and AIPP, and says: “Chairing the NFoPP Board, you will work closely with the Managing Directors of the NAEA and ARLA and Board Directors to ensure a strong synergy between the Board and the Associations’ members, providing high level support to the Managing Directors.
“The property profession is entering a period of exciting and changing times which will require NFoPP to rise to many new challenges, some known and some as yet unforeseen.
“These include refreshed and reinvigorated marketing, anticipating and reacting to legal and regulatory changes, whilst always maintaining forward thinking strategic focus.
“The Board, whose members are by definition experienced industry practitioners, are looking for an individual who can challenge, inspire and lead them to rise to meet these challenges and exceed member expectations.
“The role demands experience in chairing high profile, multi-agency groups. Your personal ethics and values will align with our core values of teamwork, respect and leadership.
“Remuneration will be by negotiation and the role will require a commitment of one to two days a month pro rata.”
